I believe that European countries should place a ban on arranged marriages because they do not work. The marriages are primarily arranged for a financial benefit for the whole family, it is not based on love or connection. This marriage will be an unhappy one, and possibly have further issues.
Arranged marriages may have once had purpose, but now they are often used as a way to take advantage of or abuse those involved for monetary gain. People should have the freedom to marry who they want instead of being forced into arranged marriages, though admittedly some of the arranged marriages do work out well for the couple.
I personally agree,Arranged marriages vary in nature and in how much time passes between first introduction and engagement. In an "introduction only" arranged marriage, also known as quasi-arranged marriages or assisted marriages, the parents or guardians introduce a potential spouse. From that point on, it is up to the two individuals to develop the relationship and make a final choice. There is no set time period. This is increasingly common in Japan, parts of Latin America and Africa, South Asia and East Asia
Arranged marriages are most needed. I and many may never get married otherwise. :P
Many people like me don't flirt with some random person. The whole love process is mess and involves many many relations.
Arranged marriages have too less breakups. Check diverse statistics from countries with arranged marriages and others. Countries with arranged marriages doing best.
People who support love marriages don't know anything about arranged marriages.
Arranged marriages helps the daughter or son to choose their mate. Even if they ban arranged marriages, parents might still secretly arrange their child's mate. Arranged marriages should be legal but the son or daughter must agree with their parent's choice first before marrying whoever their parents chose for the son or daughter.
No, I do not believe that EU countries should ban arranged marriages, because each member state should ultimately decide their own policies. The EU was only ever meant to be an advisory body. The member states might resent their participation if the EU begins imposing social directive on member states.
I do not believe EU countries should ban arranged marriages. I believe arranged marriages have been conducted by families for many generations and I do not believe it is a governments place to say what is and isn't right for their family. I believe there are arranged marriages that are just as successful as other marriages.
