I once read an article on arranged marriage that made me think in new ways about it. For example, a young woman
from a culture that practised this asked her foreign peers , "Are you going to get married?" They replied that they hoped to.
She then replied that "in our country, there's no doubt or uncertainty because it's arranged". She also humbly offered
that her older parents would probably show more practical judgement about choosing someone than anyone of her age would.
Also, she said that women were not forced to compete and denigrate each other in fighting for a husband.
It made a lot of sense ..... but it would be quite a lot for most people to accept.
