What do you think of arranged marriage? Would you consider it?
We were catching up, talking about an acquaintance who had married young and how she is now, when my companion suddenly posed the question. I took a few minutes before answering that I’m not completely against it. People marry for all kinds of reasons and if two strangers are willing to work at having a good life together, why not?
HijabMan however said most couples in arranged marriages that he know of hate each other.
I guess the modern life is not exactly conducive to nurture this kind of arrangment, what with the accepted concept of love between two people requires a lot more than knowing a future mate’s name and whether he is from a good family or not. Still, with the number of divorce continue to rise, even between the most perfect couple you have ever seen, makes me think that arranged marriages may not be so bad after all.
Ah well, what do I know, eh.
