Mind you, Mary and Joseph had an arranged marriage. I wonder what we think of that? I would hate it myself but its not our culture. What I hate is when a child is married off to some old pervert. Its sick.  ::eek::

Did you see Fiddler in the Roof? It covered this topic quite well.

It isn't shocking to me.  I know people in arranged marriages from India.

Shocking? No.
It does reflect the subtle efforts to make Islam mainstream and acceptable, though.

Right. I realize other cultures practice arranged marriages, but not many liberals are pushing Hinduism down our throats like they do Islam.

When my kids were getting into the teen years, a TON of people we knew were big into the "Courtship" movement and even advocated for arranged marriages between their Christian kids with their friends Christian kids.

I am always amazed to realize how many of the kids went along with it, even though they'd grown up together and were like family.

I can't imagine being married to the boy that was closest to my age in the families we were friends with! He was like a brother or cousin to me and I like a sister or cousin to him! Weirdness...but, I admit I am being judgy about such things.

I hear ya, MeMyself. There was a boy at my church that my mom wanted me to date, and his mom wanted him to date me. Didn't happen. He wasn't dating anyone. He was recently married - to a man, after a long string of failed homosexual relationships.
