Yes, arranged marriages still exist in many countries; but, even then, it is my understanding that one or both people can refuse the arrangement, although family pressure can be intense. However, I have heard/ read that forced marriages do still occur in a few countries. Many Muslim and Hindu families still have marriages arranged for their children (It is my understanding that families select "appropriate" potential wives/ husbands for their children and allow them to meet various potential matches). From my reading, I have gathered that this is generally done, ideally, because a parent is wiser than their children and can best select the person that would make a good husband or wife for their child. In reality, arranged marriages can be pushed by parents and family onto their children, especially women but men too, because the family wants better business affiliations, increased social status, money, etc. Arranged marriages, to my understanding, are most common in countries that have a Hindu or Muslim majority like India, Saudi Arabia, etc. but I don't know how common truly forced marriages are. Arranged marriages used to be quite common among wealthy and even middle class Christians just a couple of centuries ago. One modern example of a semi-arranged marriage was princess Diana and prince Charles of England. Diana was selected as a suitable candidate because she had a good "pedigree" even though her family was poor, she was a "respectable" young woman with a good reputation (at one point it is rumored that her virginity was medically verified!), she was pretty, and well educated. Charles did choose to pursue and court her, but only because he was told he could not marry the woman he really wanted-Camilla (although they are now married). That didn't work out, obviously, but I think that some would, if the parents are kind, wise, and really have their children's best interest at heart. Would I choose and arranged marriage? Hell no, but that's just me, and I wasn't raised around it.
