What do you all think of arranged marriages?
I used to think arranged marriage was a crazy concept. I mean, who would want to marry and spend their life with someone they dont even love? But then again, why do we as Americans think our concept of marriage is better? We do have a 50%+ divorce rate…So what do you all think about this topic?
Marriage is so much more than feeling love. At least with arranged marriages, you have the entire families supporting you and being there to help you through any problems. Your main goal is usually to bring the families together and have kids. Also, most people don’t marry total strangers- they meet and can usually reject a potential mate. Many times the families DO pick a suitable mate and they DO develope a deep, lasting love.
