Arranged Marriage vs. Forced Marriage



An arranged marriage is a legitimate way of finding a suitable marriage partner. In an arranged marriage, the parents or extended family members take the lead in finding a potential marriage partner for their adult child. These marriages often result in stable, satisfying, long-term relationships. An arranged marriage should have the full and free consent of both parties to the marriage. They must be the ones to ultimately decide WHO, WHEN and IF to marry.
