The Marriage Arrangement

It should be an interesting day for you. You’re meeting the man you’re arranged to marry. Your family picked him, made the plans and it’s all set. You just have to show up.

Kind of backwards and traditional but you said you would go along with it. Now you’re not so sure why. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

What are some things you most hope this intended husband has? Knowing there aren’t other options at this point what really is important in someone you’re going to be spending your life with?

  1. The older I get, the more I believe that arranged marriages are not such an impossible idea–given how poorly many marriages do. Maybe we should go back to letting parents choose spouses.

    Maturity is the major factor, followed by intelligence, sense of humor, tolerance, and consideration. Notice I didn’t say a “smokin’ hot bod'” in my list. The older you get, the less important this becomes.
