Why my arrange marriage would not work?

A marriage or a relationship is much less a gamble as it is. Blind dates and set up may be considered somewhat arranged.

My father was an ambitious young man, when he came back from his studies. His parents had organized an arranged marriage to my mother, a farmer’s daughter, who could not read or write. Although, I don’t blame my father for wanting a more compatible wife who was ambitious and could walk arm and arm in life. Perhaps, he did not think that he had an option to say no or stand up for himself. Of course, the marriage did not work.

The cycle continues to repeat with my brother’s arrange marriage. My problem with the entire thing is that couples end up blaming their parents for their unhappiness.

Why my arrange marriage would not work?

Relationships can be hard enough.  However, arrange marriage keeps couples away from taking responsibility for their own relationship.

It is better to live with the consequences of our own decisions and take responsibility for our own actions instead of blaming our parents for the rest of our lives.

Consider your options here, if you are thinking of an arrange marriage.
