Arranged marriages?

I just came across this article and I was wondering what some of you think of the idea of arranged marriages whether the union is accepted by both parties or if it is by force.

That ranks right up there with child labour and slavery. Disgusting and inhumane

I think if both parties consent then I see no problem with it. I have a problem when it's by force.

I think I read somewhere that the divorce rate was lower world wide with arranged marriages. Not sure if that is true but over all I wonder if marriage even has a purpose in society any more. Values have changed so much that other than a good party at the start so many don't last. Not a judgement but an observation... living in sin sounds so much more fun without the divorce costs but still all the benefits. And yes I am bitter because... being married I don't get a GST cheque...government bastards, but the smart girls who cohabitate do. lol! I'm just being jealous. Giggle

I also heard the divorce rates are lower. A few friends and acquaintances of mine from East Indian, Middle Eastern, Italian (just one person I know of), and Chinese cultures, have an marriage. You don't marry for love but for social class status. Even though the divorce rates are much much lower, I have to wonder how much higher the suicide rates amoung the females are. When they are forced to marry someone who is not pleasing to their eyes, or someone who is physically and emotionally abusive towards them, it can cause that person to go into a depression. Divorce in their culture would cause the wife's family shame and she would either be disowned, or murdered (or as they would like to call it honor killing).

I would never marry, nor would I have him live with me. I would prefer my own house and him to have his own house. I work way to hard for the little I have to have to split it 50/50 and start over again if the relationship doesn't work out.
