Love marriages have broken.......and arrange marriage have been unsatisfactory.....some love marriage and arrange marriages have been successful too........this can be just luck Today things are better in western countries, boys and girls are allowed to have relationship and stay like married couple before marriage....this way both can really know each other well and make the decision if they can live with each other whole life.......but in our eastern or Asian culture, this is not allowed, so we cannot say what will be fate of marriage....love or arrange....everything depends on your luck.

"this can be just luck Today things are better in western countries, boys and girls are allowed to have relationship and stay like married couple before marriage ....this way both can really know each other well and make the decision if they can live with each other whole life......"but this sentence is wrong because in my words dating is a very very stupid thing because dating before is

because cultures that have arranged marriages are very unnacepting of divorce, so unhappy couples stay together, no matter how miserable. in true marriages, some fail when they no longer love each other, but those that last are happier, as the couple love each other, and chose each other as the person they want to spend the rest of their life with. if people who do not love each other get married, it's not a true marriage, no matter how long they stick it out together.

if you know how to respect another person,and if you know how to put others before yourselves, and if you are able to communicate your feelings effectively to a certan extent that what you say is what you feel, and if you are able to understand and empathise, it doesn't really matter which one you choose to believe in; love or arranged. Both have one thing in common. The relationship is for a lifetime. Keep exploring and you will lose sight of what it is that you want and if you don't explore, you don't know what you want. My suggestion : go for an arranged one where there is sufficient time for you to know an fall in love with one another.

I have already finished 31 years in a arranged marriage. I do not have any problem. As you said Wahishaji, if one has all the points one can go through anything. I had just seen my husband the day he came to see me. After that I saw him on the marriage day when the ceremoney was being held. I hadn't even spoke to him over phone till then. If you have enough patience and the time to understand and accept the person with his / her faults you can have any marriage you like.

I think arrange marriage is best because you don't have to suffer any problem. The difference between in love and arrange marriage, is that in love marriage you love the person before marriage nad in arrange you start to love after marriage. So it is better to do arrange because you will be happy and your parents also. I am right?

Some arranged marriages do work out. It all depends on the personalities of the individuals involved. They may compliment each other very well or their needs and wants may be completely different in which case one or both may be found wanting of a life that they may never have. On the other hand, two people may find love to later lose it by one or the other falling out of love. The equation is not simple. Sometimes we have to base it on trial an error. Most importantly though is the need to become friends before becoming lovers.

I would not consider for one second marrying someone I do not love. my partner and I have been together, and very in love for nearly 10 years now. we know our relationship works, and has done for a long time, so we know our marriage will work too. It's only a fool who would marry someone without loving them. statistics show that arranged marriages are more likely to last, but that doesn't mean the relationship lasts. just staying together. the societies that accept people marrying without being in love are not accepting of divorce, even if both are miserable, so this statistic does not mean that arranged marriages are better or happier than those between two people who love each other. and how could they be happier. you can't guarantee that marrying someone will make you love them. love has to be there already for marriages to be successful. and by successful I don't mean just not ending in divorce. I mean successful, where both stay in love, and both are happy.

Surely, getting married to the person you love. Although they say that you can learn to love a person, I still think marrying the person of your choice is the best. No need to feel rebellious about the feelings, no need to convince yourself to love the person you were arranged to marry. If you marry the person you love, all will be fine, and if there will be arguments, you know for sure you can get past it because you already love each other from the get go and would not allow an argument to break you.

Arrange marriage is wht i would prefer...You can always fall in love after you are married however in 80% of love marriages that i have seen sour away after a couple of years and If you go back in history 70% arrangemarriages have been successful since the evolution of mankind...No offences to any one its an individuals belief..THANKS FOR LETTING ME SHARE MY THOUGHTS...THANKS
