What do you mean by arranged marriage? Christian arranged marriage is simply is directed introductions. Where adults who knows both couples introduce perspective bride and groom to each other. The couple makes there own decision. This helps the couple to make decision not based on emotions rather intelectually. Then you learn to grow in love. Weather you know each other for a long time or even a day "It takes work to work a marriage." Start with prayer.
Arranged marriages today in Christian circles are no longer "arranged" as the term was once used. It used to be that the persons getting married had no choice. Today, no will be forced to marry anyone. Parents merely introduce the two persons and they make their own choice. Western values have demeaned marriage in many ways. Marriage is not just about liking your spouse and being friends with your spouse. It also includes a variety of factors, which will hold the marriage together when the liking wears off. These factors should obviously include a Christian foundation, family history, spiritual maturity and commitment and other factors.
Not to be hippocritical, but When my parents were trying to "Forcefully" arranage a M for my life, I ran away from home. I Ran away from home, and became homeless because my mom and dad were trying to ruin my life, with this subject. I hate this topic. When ever my parents talk about it, I change the subject, because I dont want them to ruin my life with that decision, and I dont want to: go back to the jungles of Kerala, find a uggly duckling wife, bring my the beastly woman back to america, and domesticate her hence. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
