OK, now where? I mean, in some countries women are allowed to reject a betrothed husband or they'll get their eyes burned out with acid. I'm of course opposed to this. If you're talking like a family arranged or religious obligation then it's really the right for the women to reject it, even if it means being socially outcast from the community that's imposing this idea. The only group I know of that does this is the Lubavich Hasidic community. Maybe the Mormans but I don't really care enough about them to want to know.

I think that's exactly what the OP is trying to get at. It should be a right, but as you pointed out your self. there can be consequences. Is it right for it to be the case?

It's not fair, no But old fashioned traditions are hard to get rid of *sad face*

Personally I think not, but far be it from me to tell an entire religious community what to do. I've heard of family pressure to marry and there can be a lot of reasons attached but getting married for the sake of someone else isn't going to be a happy marriage. So it might come down to having to make a hard decision but in the end it was their decision to make, not someone else's.

As far as I know, Mormons do not do arranged marriages. However, they do get married or engaged right after high school because usually the guys do their 'mission' for the next 2 years.

As for the whole arranged marriage, I'm not for it. I understand that some families will do it because of ancient promises or to combine family companies, but please move into the 21st century. Both parties should be allowed to reject the marriage if they wish instead of being miserable for the rest of their lives with someone they can't stand.

It's wrong. It's wrong. It's UNconstitutional. And I was never forced into it anyway.

I threw that out there because I heard they did to some extent.

If you mean arranged marriages, I heard about it at a Muslim Student Panel at school. They can work out really well. If there are any problems, either party can opt out or get a divorce. It's more of a family thing, really.

I'm not for it or against it. I say let others do what they do if it can be reversed like a normal marriage

Parent's should make their childs happiness their first priority and provide council on important decisions based on a level of experience that comes with life. However a lot of parents want whats "best" for their children's future be it telling them to go to college for a certain job or marrying someone from a prominent family and any acts agains those wishes are viewed as a betrayal. This is why it's common for wealthy or noble people to have arranged marriages. To simplify it people get arranged marriages because they are afraid of the consequences of betraying their parents (ie being disowned, blacklisted, kicked out)
