My argument is simple - To each their own. I'm not condemning arranged marriage. What I condemn is depriving a person to the right to choose their own path towards matrimony and in some cases away from it. Only if arranged marriage is what they desire most should this be the chosen approach for finding a spouse. Furthermore, should one or both parties decide they no longer wish to be married to one another, they should, without societal backlash, be allowed to dissolve the marriage and go on separately about their lives.

It comes down to culture, history and religion. I agree with arranged marriages even though I'm certain they don't always pan out. If a culture truely believes in it then I don't see a problem. As Americans we have a freedom to chose, and then in an insanely high rate. Divorce.

A woman who is given a man forcefully was highly thought of for her best interest. She might be made to marry someone with money, an honorable family name, or just a wholesome family man. Woman who have arranged marriages aren't usually thrown a homeless man or a serial killer.
