Do you think a "marriage" arranged by parents will work?

I went to Bicol for a holiday vacation and my seatmate in the bus asked me if its okey if she will grab the o42nity offering by her parent & a family friend "a marriage arrangement b/w her and the groom" (family friend), though thier families knew each other well but they dont have any mutual feelings & understanding at the back of the good future & wealth they are offering for her.

personally, i wont go for arranged marriage since i believe that love should be the primary reason why i would marry someone. i cant imagine waking up in the morning with a stranger in the same bed. but hey, is it possible to learn to love someone? its another story right? ü

I think it can work if the parents will give her some time to get to know this person. It sound bad, but her parents want only what is good for her-I hope.
