Would You Enter Into An Arranged Marriage?
Starting next week a new reality show series will begin showing in Canada and the USA (and probably elsewhere as well), which involves two heterosexuals--who will not have seen each other before they begin walking down the aisle--getting married. A panel will have reviewed several hundred applications and then matched up couples based on their intelligence and lifestyle. If after the wedding and a lovely honeymoon they (still) can't stand each other, a divorce is readily attainable. The comments in a write-up on this were many and varied and, generally, quite negative. I don't see this as much different than arranged marriages which occur quite frequently in certain cultures, except in these instances it is the parents and not a put-together panel who match up the couples. Like all marriages, some are happy and others are not. I would, therefore, with certain stipulations, enter into an arranged marriage: Would you? Why or Why not?
