* ''Series/NineOneOne'' has a variant - while the marriage is indeed arranged and the bride and groom are only just meeting each other, the two take it in relative stride and seem hopeful for the future. Things only become sad when the floor abruptly collapses and dozens of guests, including the bride, need to be rescued by the 118.


TruthInTelevision. Even without the Bollywood or some sort of lost love undertone, some traditional Indian marriage ceremonies are based on the idea that the bride leaves her family forever to live with her husband and his family (who are supposed to be [[ArrangedMarriage total strangers to her]]). This often involves a lot of crying and even ''mourning'' on the part of the bride and her family. And in the old days, it ''was'' like this! People would come from another village, and it wasn't like mom and dad had a car to go visit the daughter. If you were poor, you might see your daughter when she has kids and that's it. in some more traditional families, the bride's parents won't even eat or drink water from the daughter's new home.
