I never thought marriage was about love. It's about having a family. You can love her, but not necessarily be in love.
Would you marry someone you get along with very well, and know would be a good father/mother even if you're not in love with them?

For me YES
But in many cultures NO
It's more about family imagine, wealth, having kids which is fine but if any of those things fall apart the marriage is pretty much miserable. But they won't divorce because it's frowned upon in most places. With the exception of places like U. S., U. K., Canada
Based on stories I've read, friends who have parents who did not have love marriages, and parents I've met who told me about their arrange non love marriage I think I'll pass.
My friends whose parents have arrange marriage usually tell me their parents don't like each other but they make it work. "Hence NO you don't need love"
However sometimes they do fall in love. And they want their kids to have the same thing/same route.
On the other hand I met a set of parents before of a friend. They told me about their non love marriage and said they wanted their kids to marry for love.
I didn't ask their reason but I assume they have a good one. They don't dislike each other and kind of like the description you have they've been good parents. They just want their kids to experience love I guess and they're kids are very happy about that.
It's really I guess whatever you want to experience
I rather have a marriage where I'm in love with a person who will be a good mother/father then just have some I love but not like that who's a good mother/father
Why sell myself short when I can have the full package? Albeit maybe harder to find.1
