Would you trust your parents to pick your future Husband/Wife?

So, I saw this new show in TLC called "Married by Mom & Dad" were the kids allowed their parents to chose their future husband/wife. So, I am wondering how many of you would actually trust your parents in picking your future wife/husband? pls explain why?

Would you trust your parents to pick your future Husband/Wife?

I would only trust my father in picking my husband. My mother would just chose a handsome jerk with no redeeming qualities lol.

  • Nah, I wouldn't. They don't know what I find attractive in a girl.

    My Dad tried introducing me to a few of his students from Taiwan (where my family is from). They're all really quiet, shy, and sort of "submissive" (I hate that term, but I don't know what else to use - they pretty much do what their fathers/husbands tell them to do). They think that kind of girl would be perfect for me.

    I don't "click" with that kind of personality. I'm attracted to a girl who is more outspoken, strong-willed and confident, but has a kind heart and an intellectual mind. I'm sure I can find that on my own :D

  • Nope, not a good idea. I think that they would choose someone that they like but not someone that I would like. Seeing as they absolutely hate my boyfriend (and he hates them back) whilst I adore him, I would say we have a vastly different opinion on some behaviours. What they'd see as acceptable isn't something I ever would and vice versa. I don't think I would end up enjoying being with whoever they chose.

  • Yes I would trust my parents for choosing a partner for me, because even if we choose we at some point need to start from being strangers so what is wrong in here? In both cases it is going to be a stranger, rest is just about looks so I have already talked and explained showed pics of various girls to my parents that I see as ideal for my partner's physical looks so I am sure they will consider those things in looks, and I know my parents still would want me to meet that person before proceeding, so if you count looks then for that I have explained them already the looks I want in my partner and if it is about knowing as a person then still my parents have more experience knowing a person and that would be a plus for me, and after all that I will also get the chance of choosing over a choice that seems to be twice filtered lol hence i wouldn't mind if they choose it for me, I see nothing negative in that. As far as they consider my choice important before proceeding I think that is much better then choosing someone solo by yourself.

    • Wow! That's amazing that it worked out :)

      Happy for you

    • Well, I come from a culture where that is normal and majority of the cases it works out. It's not like the guy and girl have no say but we trust our parents.

  • Since I'm Asian, my mom would pick a nice Asian housewife that is respectful and obedient, that would be a nightmare for me, lol.

  • i'm pretty close to my parents, and they know me pretty well. however, if i were to trust them with something as important as choosing my future husband, i'd have to say no way, jose.

    why? because they'd be picking who's best for them, rather than what's best for me. we have different personalities and priorities; therefore, we value different traits.

    (my biological parents have been divorced for more than 20 years, but my mom has been married to my [step] dad for 15. as for my biological father, wouldn't trust him any further than i could throw him, since he'd likely choose some rich, religious, uber-conservative dude that no one could pay me enough to want to marry. lol.)

  • Mmm my Mom is alreay trying to do that :p I'm sure she will look for a Tunisian Dentist or Doctor or something like that haha from a respectable traditional family and religious. Why not, seems like a good thing, but what if I'm not attracted to them? And it seems a bit boring!
    So in short, I'm not completely opposed to it, but I would rather not.

  • It takes a lot for me to be comfortable around someone, and I have my own specific interests, and I don't think my parents understand that xD They'd probably pick some boring dude with a great job, and I'd be miserable my whole life and divorce him as soon as I could LOL

  • I would not, because it should be my choice who and if I marry. However, if we lived in a culture in which arranged marriage was the norm, I would definitely trust my parents' judgement and I believe they would pick someone that I would genuinely like and could grow to love.

  • In that case I might as well start being miserable now. They couldn't even choose someone right for themselves... let alone me😨😨 I'm not a picky nor judgmental person, but I'll decide this one on my own.

    I can't deal with that and would much rather be single forever.

  • In India, arranged marriages are quite common. To be honest, I'd rather die single than to get married to someone who I didn't even choose in the first place. Scary.

  • I wouldn't let ANYONE pick the person I would marry
    1) I don't want to marry
    2) IF I ever marry, there better be some chemistry there or we all know how this is going to end
