Yo! So I think I might be on to something. Actually, I think people of the old world were on to something: Arranged marriage. Hear me out, so I've been talking to a lot of different people on this subject and I've really developed a soft spot for it. Let's review the facts:

Arranged marriage (also called prearranged marriage) is a marriage arranged by someone other than the couple getting wedded, curtailing or avoiding the process of courtship.

Fact: Dating sucks

Fact: At some point in a relationship you start to notice, accept, resent and ignore the idiosyncrasies of a person and you have to make a decision on whether or not you can live/deal with these issues. In dating, the answer is always a resounding, NO

Fact: Your parents are probably right about the person you should be with

Fact: You don't really know a person until you live together, but what's the purpose of living together unless you're married or on the fast track to getting married? There is no purpose.

So what this really comes down to is that if you bypass all the bullshit of dating and go straight to the living together and marriage, you won't have the opportunity to hate each other's small faults with the opportunity of breakup! And, you can stop the dating process immediately. And, AND you can be with someone your mom likes! Score. According to me, and lots of my closest people, there aren't many negatives to arranged marriages, except the whole not knowing the person at all and the initial jitters of sleeping with someone on the first date, and the first date being your wedding day. Don't hate on this idea, it just might be the hottest Sh#t on the scene tomorrow.*

*Please excuse everything you've read above, I'm having a weird week.

  1. While I may not agree with arranged marriages, it certainly is something to think about. It's interesting to think how so many of these marriages have been successful when other marriages have not.
