i think it's not a good thing if you like another person. and if the person you are marrying is mean or something it's just bad luck that's why finding your true love would be best. ^-^ because both sides would like each other that may be true with arranged marriage if you are lucky but i think choosing your love is better than parents choosing them

well i spend alot of m like in west life style but basically i am asian. i saw many ppl who hav love mariage but they broke. and same wiv arrange but its true that 70% arrange marriages are successfull becoz in arrange marriage husband and wife both of them try hard to make their relation better and better but on the other hand lovers expect much from each other but no one works hard for it and after some time day by day feelings situations change. i am modren educated and i visit the world ... BUT after all that i preffer arrange marriage becoz i believe my MOM known me and my nature batter then me my self.
i accept that lovers hav pleasure when they got married but arrange marriages have their own pleasure.
and i blieve a love bond between arrange married couple is stronger then love married couple.
yeah but if iits arrange + love marriage then its somefin like a couple from heaven .
yaa haaaaaaaaa ^_-

I'm all for it as long as the people who are getting married agree with the whole thing. None of that 'married but dating other people'. In any case, its a bonus if they happen to accidentally fall in love in the process... gotta love that!

when you ask this question, you also want to ask, what is love? i feel that in the end you can end up loving any one can let close to you and who lets you close to them. it really isn't that hard to be with someone. it's really up to you to decide, sometimes the arranged marriages don't work because either one or both sides don't want it to work. really those parents are doing the arranging because they care for their child or for their own well being.

then again it also takes away the sacredness of marriage as well because shouldn't it be done out of love? but hey i live in a state where gay marriage is OK!

Totaly against!! no freedom, no rights, no choice!!
You can't call it love. or a Marrige for that matter.
The parents should never decide your life for you.
Makes people to be pretty weak decicion makers in the futur.
If you try devorce, your family will hate you forever. ( not in favor of devorces anyway, unless you really src*** up and can't get out from under a gold digger)
I say ''You Choice'' ''Your life'' '' Your responsibility''

I know quite a few couples who have had arranged marriages. They all seem happy. I was discussing it with a Moslem man last year, who has an arranged marriage. He pointed out that if my parents had arranged a marriage for me, it couldn't possibly have been any worse than what I arranged for myself. I agree, as my marriage was a disaster, to put it mildly. He loves his wife. A Pakistani lady I know told me she is really happy in her arranged marriage and says the love comes after the marriage. She also said that in her culture, both parties have the right of veto if they meet the person and decide they simply couldn't marry them. I realise that in both these cases some choice was involved, and that isn't always so, but all the arranged marriages I have seen personally have been successful and a lot of "love" marriages haven't. I think arranged marriage is something a lot of Westerners have trouble understanding.

Agreed. I would hate an arranged marriage and if I ever get forced into one, I'd run away.

well atleast your garrenteed a marrgae. But seriously i aint sure i mean its a cultural belif so you have to accept it though i personally wouldnt agree. its jut with todays society and the fact that we have more rights that it has really been questioned.

Imo i aint for it.

People keep confusing an arranged marriage, with a forced one. They are two different entities. With forced you have no choice, with arranged your parents suggest a partner, and you (boy or girl) give the go ahead.

Lets not confuse the issue.

I personally don't like the idea of an arranged marriage because then it's like your fate has already been decided and you can't live life the way you want to, but it's just my thoughts and opinion.
