Maybe Westerners should try arranged marriage – it might just work better

Arranged marriages sound like Match.com except that it is free and it is someone who really cares for you doing to looking and matching. So it is with Indian arranged marriage.

A lot of Westerners pooph pooh the idea but hae not come up with a better plan for lasting marriages. Our marriages are based on romantic myth we can love. A firey passionate encounter that fizzles in short time like a burning newspaper page. When the passion is not felt we feel it is time to move on because “I’m not happy”.  With arranged marriage, everyone is involved because it is bringing two families together and the stronger these familial bonds the greater chance of a successful marriage.

If I had to do it all over again I would give this job to my folks who would ensure that I get the man of my dreams without me doing the work. What a delightful idea. Are you ready to give it a try? Why pay money for something you ought to get for free.
