many of our parents chose a partner for you,they choose the one who they think is best for you without considering love or your own choice..are you in favor of this?what would you do if ever you are being forced by your parents to marry someone whom you don't love?

well, i have encountered a lot of stories. one is from a friend's teacher, she said her parents forced her to marry this guy because of business. and they're chinese as well. and now, this other friend of mine is in the same situation. her father, the one who insisted, said the guy is RIGHT for her because her dad knows the guy. i mean, it's pathetic right? what's the use of our freewill if our parents will be the one to choose the guy/girl for us. i thought, fix/arrange marriage is centuries ago but it still exist. totally not in favor.

Definitely not! It's really not fair for them to choose someone to be your partner. They should consider your feelings. You're the one who will spend your life with that someone that's why you have all the rights to decide.

Forced marriage? No way. I'm the one who has to live with the person the rest of my life. I should at least be the one to make the choice.
