"Alright, son. Here's a beautiful girl. She sings, she dances, she watches anime, she's rich, she farts, she eats cockroaches, she's a sadist, and she has AIDS. Don't give me that look. All you said was you wanted a beautiful girl. Now hurry up and marry her."

I understand the possible benefits and purposes behind arranged marriages; however, I also find it rather irking, particularly when they're arranged at an early age. "Children must become adults, but they must not become independent enough to choose their own mates."

Arranged marriages could go wrong in so many ways so fast but I guess it could also work in my personal opinion I'm against.

Arranged marriage is a powerful political tool, I'm 2-3 daughters away from cementing my alliance with the Holy Roman Empire and earning a Fiefdom in Upper Saxony.

I watched a documentary where Kyrgyzstan, it is normal for the men to kidnap a woman and force her to be his wife...

no one intervenes because it "tradition" and people can be shunned for saving their daughters from the people who forced them to marry them....

The woman are told they should just go along with it if they are kidnapped and forced to marry or they will be cursed/shunned/bad women/ will never be happy

Forced arranged marriages, unfortunately, happen often. It usually ends up with one person running away/killing themselves.

I dont like it. My friend who's religion has an arranged marriage and shes miserable. She likes this guy but she cannot pursue anything with him because of her religion. Its her own life and she should be the one to decide she could marry whoever she wants.


Can't you help her in some way? If she doesn't like the other person then can't she divorce after the marriage? I don't know how it is where you live.

But where I live (Sweden), you can contact the authorities to let them help you in solving arranged marriages.

I'm okay with it, but that's only because I will mostly like not stand a chance of getting married through my efforts alone. Otherwise, I'd be against being forced to marry someone I'm not attracted or interested in.

Sometimes I think I'd like to go for an arranged marriage in the end, since the thought of wading through the dating process over and over just makes me go UGH...but then I remember that I'm an Irish Canadian so my family would think I'd gone crazy lol

But forced marriages (like really forced, not "hey son, we're setting you up for some arranged marriage meetings cuz you're 30 and haven't got a GF yet") are obviously bad. You should at least like the person's company on a basic level and be prepared to settle down in order to have a functional marriage.

If it's all good between the bride and groom-to-be, by all means, go for it.

My mom attempted something like this once. I refused to have anything to do with it. <___<

It was something practiced all the time back in the day between just about everybody, but I don't believe many "families" were happy in the end.

Everyone should have a forced arranged marriage or no marriage at all, decided by the state.
This way, we can use the finest genetic material to help the progress of the country, quickly pushing past others in terms of sports, education, general attractiveness.
