"I now pronounce you MAN and STRANGER..."
Changing the subject from politics .......I have often wondered about this:
Do you think ARRANGED MARRIAGES can work?
Ever heard anybody debate it?!! Have any personal stories to share on the topic?
I think most of us have very little experience with this, but I sure do know that my grandmother and grandfather didn't know each other well before they married! And, you can be REAL sure they didn't know each other in the Biblical way! Actually, if it weren't for my Dad having been born, I'd have said they STILL hadn't............ never mind. But, they had a love for each other that was very sweet. They had respect for each other. They respected each others' families and wouldn't ever do anything to dishonor each other or their families or their children.
I see so many couples living together for four or five years, then divorcing fairly soon after marriage. The statistics show that couples who lived with each other have less success in marriage than couples who hadn't. What do you think?
Any thoughts? I'm curious! I wonder if the men's and women's comments will differ much!!
