ahhh.....if I was young agian.....
well, what can I say. I think maybe something in the middle of those two options would be probably better. ya know, where your parents are actively
envolved, scrutinizing those who you find interesting, presenting you with those they find interesting, and well, you always respecting their advice
as the words of wisdom only experience can give, and they respect your desires as to what you you expect, and don't expect.
for many people, at least in american culture, it seems that "love" really turns out to be more like infatuation, or maybe even lust....but whatever
it is, it's not strong enough to last through the stess and demands of marriage.....that takes commitment. and well, in an arranged marriage, the
one perk you would have that you might not have in the marriages us americans are accoustomed to is the commitment of family members to help and
guide you to a successful marriage. they might manipulate, instigate, and well, in plain simple words break it up, just so they can have the joy of
saying...."We told you so!!!"
whatever you dicide, try to have the approval of both sides of the family and a working relationship with them. they can be a great assett when the
road gets rocky and rough.
