They used to have arranged marriages in the Philippines. How I wish they had it now. Then maybe I wouldn't be single. Honestly and seriously, I think it would be best to marry because your parents arranged it than for love. I've always fallen in love and look at what it's done to me. LOL

what is important is not marriage?? I have divorced, now I have a boyfriend, what he means? what is important is the person to whom you want to give your love. My ex-husband was not deserving it any more.

A peace of both... love without harmony is useless... a little love, more harmony.

I am marrying out of love. I am already very much in love with my fiance and we already know each other very well and are completely comfortable around each other. I would definitely prefer that rather than marrying someone who I really don't know, because you have no way of knowing if the two of you have any chemistry or if you will ever really grow to love them or not. Also, I think it would feel very awkward to get married and live with someone you barely know. I am really shy, so I would feel extremely uncomfortable and probably hardly be able to talk to my own husband if I was put in an arranged marriage with someone I didn't know.

Love of course. I can't let others tell me what to do with my life, let alone marry someone they pick for me. My parents did interfere with the wedding plans and the result was beautiful but boring Cinderella wedding, but anyway, I married him for love.

It is not our custom to have arranged marriages, and I am thankful of this. I would not want someone else picking out the person I was to marry. I like being able to make my own decisions and nobody really knows you except for you yourself. I don't understand how someone can decide who would be right for you to marry. I would definitely prefer to marry for love.
