Love, of course. Why choose to be stuck with someone you hardly even know much less love? But then both partners of arranged marriage can see it in a positive light. They can start being nice to each other and maybe it will work out.

i couldnt deal with an arranged marriage.. my parents would have chosen a pastor or something and here would be a barefoot and pregnant wiccan having to go to a christian church.. or worse i would have to do meetings and clubs for the church ugh!!i know one guy they wanted me with was like 1-2 years older than me but now he has 7 kids.. and is a pastor.. lol..

Love or say self-arranged marriage would be better than a marriage arranged by respective parents. Because in self-arranged marriage we come to know about our respective partners before hands and we can mentally preapre ourselves for the impending future events. In an arranged marriage, it takes considerable time to understand each other and to get along with each other. I would prefer a self-arranged (love) marriage, if given the choice.

I don't want my parents or anybody else choose whom I want to marry. Marriage is a crucial thing in life if not decided properly, you will end up ruined your life. I would choose the person I love not they want.

haha ha, there is so much to write on this topic. In a nut shell i would say def love marriage is better. Yes at the same time there are advantages to an arranged marriage and that would be there is so much to learn about your partner. That def keeps the relationship ticking a bit longer. ha ha

Known donkey is of course better than unknown donkey. If you marrying known donkey, at least you can prepare yourself for the outcome. :) Well, before getting married, better get at least some info about your bride to be, so that you can prepare yourself. Marriage is not for 1 day, a week, a month, a year or what so ever, it's for life. If you don't prepare to deal with that donkey, then you'll sure found troubles.

i would prefer arranged marriage b'coz in love marriage after all the thrill of love making we get married but there is no guarantee that the love will exist forever but if you check arrange marriage you can do the same things and there is guarantee that the girl cant say no coz she is already married to you and if you check the success rate of marriages arrangd marriages are more successful than love marriages.

You couldn't pay me enough to marry some bloke that I don't know and who I probably wouldn't have any intrest in. I honestly don't know how a person could marry a person that they know nothing about. Thank god I am marrying my fiance for who he is than someone telling me I have to marry a person. I rather marry for love hands down.

I want to marry for love, real and true love. I would fear an arranged marriage because why if i can't love them and we end up not getting along. I would be stuck in a useless marriage.

If the arrange marriage is with someone who I know and respected/one that I can respect, then I will go ahead with it. Sometimes arranged marriage come out where the two individual comes to love each other. One can look at the someone they love and want to go with that person but the marriage was arrange and you have to go to the arrangement. Then further down the years when you look at the one you love and the life you are living you are glad that you went with the arrangement because the one you love give up on life.

Yes you are right... it's better to marry someone you know than someone your parents knew. It's you who will going to marry that person and not your parents. So for that, I will marry because of love and not because my mom or dad told me so.
