Love marriage of course. Just imagine living the rest of your life with a person whom you don't even have any idea if he/she snores!Gosh!

Well, I don't mean it literally..what I'm trying to say is that can you be with somebody whom you actually don't know?It's really difficult and I think it's just like Muslims forced to eat pork. Well, we still have diffirent views about this issue though.

Well i like arrange marriges because i have done arranged and since 3 years i am living a happily married life...there is not a big difference between arange and love marriges...in arrnage marriage u love a person after u get married and in love marrige u love a person first and then get married...either way love happens. And do you know more than 70% of love marriges end in divorce.

what about the times when you can't love the person you are married to? what if he is a violent person? i think arranged marriages are made by force. that's why they don't end up in a divorce. at least this is what i think. i actually saw a documentary with this theme on TV a few years ago.

who said that in arrange marriages someone else chooses a spouse for you..ofcourse you can marry a person of your choice and its not like that you see a guy/gal today and get married tommorow and then be afraid of not knowing him/her very well...in arrange marriages also you have enough time to know that how a person is and is he/she the one right for you or not

Why would you want a marriage with no love?

Some cultures believe the sole purpose of relationships is reproduction therefore they force the couples. The couples reproduce and that's that. They remain together but there isn't really any love. There have been some occurrences in which the forced couple actually does fall in love over time.

i would go for Love Marriage. Arranged Marriage is usually set for keeping money among rich people. but what's the use of money when you don't like the person that's next to you? let's not talk that he/she is going to be there forever. Another reason for Arranged Marriage is tradition. Nowadays this tradition is starting to fell apart and it should, because in 99% of arranged marriages the people are not really happy. they get used to each other and can have a good life but not a great one. so i am against Arranged Marriages.

Common sense just points towards love marriage. Love is an important aspect in life that we must all go through. It contributes to our joy, our happiness. Sometimes love ends in a failure but all in all it was probably a good experience. So, definitely a love marriage. The arranged marriages just takes all the charm out of the marriage. Being forced to do something is always wrong. It might not be against your will if you have been warned, and thought about it, beforehand but it just doesn't seem right. I'm not against those who are considering or are currently in an arranged marriage. It just seems like a waste of an important event in a life.

I would prefer a love marriage because then you can pick the person that you want to be with the rest of your life. . . I don't like the idea of having someone pick your future spouse for you.

Marriages are made in Heaven....!!!! But Now a days as you say " I don't like the idea of having someone pick your future spouse for you " May be correct; But Love marriage do happen had last; But also in Arranged marriage; if they start loving after marriage and try to know better it would be fine. Still depends on UNDERSTANDING
