Parents are smarter and I love my parents. They tell me who to love and how to love someone. It is their decision. I don't know how to fix my own problems. I'm 28 and I still live in my parent's house because I love them. In conclusion, case closed.
Supposedly, many arranged marriages do really well: better even than personally-chosen marriages.
Not only that, but involved parents would likely have a better basis on which to establish compatibility from an outside perspective. How you act, who you THINK you are, and who you THINK you should be are usually at odds, which can throw your own judgment for a loop.
However, when it comes to arranged dates and marriages, it still ultimately comes down to YOUR choice. Your parents or friends can match you up with someone, but it is YOU who must agree.
On this basis, I vote "NO". I'm in favor of parents picking out potentials, but it should ultimately be OUR choice.
You should not have your life dictated to you by people older than you. They may give you advice, people your age may give you advice, but I believe the final say in any choice you make should be yours. You should be mature enough to determine the course of your own life. If you get your life handed to you on a silver platter, then you are not living life to its fullest. Besides, your elders are the past, and the future is what your choices determine. If they are the same, there is no movement forward. That is why I believe a pauper is more free than a princess.
It's our life ! Our decision ! Even we took a wrong decision , that also was our own problems , at the same time we cant blame our parents and MUST to leran how to fixed the problems . Parents may know what toothpaste is best to use, or be able to teach you how to tie a neck tie, but that cannot tell you who or how to love someone.
