Today many marriages based on love end in divorce, while many arranged marriage never ends in a divorce. Some cultures will never change and will always think it is best to arrange the marriage of their child. In some ways, this is great for the parents because they are picking their new in-laws.
I have never actually agreed with an arranged marriage and I feel sorry for the children involved. Parent's seem to think they know what is best for their children, but they have never asked them what they want. In America, mail order brides were outdated years ago and women were given a choice of who they wanted to marry.
When a person decides to get married they need to consider many things. Do you actually feel like you want to share your life with this woman and settle down and have a family? Does she feel the same way you do? You also need to be sure that you have common interests, want the same things out of life, and you are willing to give up your free life and settle down and have a family. If this is the case then it is a good idea to find a person that you love deeply and are willing to give her all of you and she is willing to do the same in return. Otherwise, it is best to have your marriage arranged for you and take it one day at a time.
