Would you ever have an arranged marriage set up by your parents?

I would probably be up for it because my mother always has good taste in guys, plus she knows what's best.

  • No way !!! Why would someone else decission as to who'll be my life partner. And come on it's 21st century arranged marriage hardly do exist. Like in my country its sort of common but who gives a damn about who I'll marry. I'd rather find a good bf narry him settle down have kids and grow old together. No way is my parents gonna make decisions on the matter as to who I should marry.

  • I trusted my dad's judgement... It wasn't his way and we don't do that in the US culture, but I would have considered it if he had wanted to arrange something.

  • Fuck No, because my parents were in an arranged marriage from back on the island and it's been nothing but hell growing up in that environment. I'd murk them both, two shots to the head, that's it.

  • Depends on the person arranged for me... But it would be a bit of a gamble. I don't really like gambles. Especially if my life is on the line. I voted maybe, but I kinda feel like no way at the same time.

  • My mom is the 5th daughter of 7 girls. And up until the 4th were arranged by her father. But when my grandfather wanted to arrange my mother's marriage to a rich kids family, she said no.

    Then she picked my and married my dad, who at the time was poor because he grew up as an orphan. My grandfather disapproved of it and stopped talking to my mom until he died. Her life with my father was really hard, but I think it made their relationship stronger.

  • Arranged things never turn out good. You will never know if the love is sincere. You can't put random people together and see if they like each other. It's not a science experiment it's life. Love for one another comes in various stages that's why people date. They are testing the compatibility of one another. Then love grows. Don't force love or you'll be sorry in the future

  • Hell no! If somehow forced into that situation (which I see as impossible) I'd give the girl an honest chance to walk away. If she didn't I'd off her.

    • What if she was cool?

    • She's still holding me against my will and my will power is unstoppable. It can only end in a volcanic eruption. What can I say, I'm stubborn. :p That said if I met the girl through family, for example at a family piknik or something like that and I thought she was cool for my own reasons without outside influence then sure I'd give her a chance and date her. If it turned into a good relationship down the road, then I'd consider marriage at that point. An introduction like heh this is Jennifer she's Bob's daughter is fine. Anything beyond that is really not acceptable in my opinion.

  • I might have to go with c :(

  • no, id rather a girl find and choose me and for her to fall in love with me on her own and not do it cause she was told to, it just wouldn't feel natural or normal to me, and i would feel unimportant to her

  • Meeting a guy through your parents isn't the same as a real arranged marriage- not sure which one you were really referring to

  • When I think of arranged marriages I think of like using a matchmaker to help you find someone, not "congratulations you're now married and have no choice in the matter"

  • My mom likes the opposite of what I like. I've been on her wound 9 months and I'm soon to be 19 and she STILL doesn't know me enough to buy me something I like for Christmas or my birthday.
    Imagine a guy? No! :S

  • I voted A.
    There's no way I'd want anything like that.
    First of all, my parents and I have VERY different definitions of what is considered a good man and a good match for me.
    Secondly, I don't want to marry anyone I don't actually want to marry.
