I don't think arranged marriages are good. I do think it's ok for parents to make introductions, but I don't think it should be forced. I think you should be free to love WHOever you love and if you wish to get married, then that should be your choice, not the choice of parents or priests.

really? lots of marriages in this world are not marriages of true love but out of convenience/? whatever..i have all of the above..and if is not broke..i do not fix it.. romantic love is nice..but once you go through a few of these roller coaster affairs you soon know that you have very little control over your destiny..no matter how you got married.

I also agree that marriage should not be forced one and should be off the choice of both partners. I do not think arranged marriage is that bad. It become bad only when it is forced against the will of either girl or boy.

I would hate to be in an arranged marriage. If im going to spend the rest of my life with someone, im going to want to choose who that someone is.

I would rather be married in love than to be fixed up with someone I cannot love or relate to. I married my husband out of love. We both love each other.

If you'll look at history, arranged marriage are the lasting ones but we can't deny the fact that there are other lovers along the way, especially on the husband's side. Of course, we would all want to love our partner first before having to marry them but then, love is something that we also learn. I guess its how we accept things that makes us contented. Whether its an arranged marriage or not, as long as there is respect in the relationship, the marriage would last a lifetime. In some arranged marriages that I know, the couple are given time to get to know each other first. Sometimes, it pays to know your partner first but for me, you have to make that love would have a space between the couple regardless of what circumstances their marriage had come upon.
