It depends if it's a cultural custom. If it is, then it's almost pointless to fight it. It appears your ex girlfriend isn't ready to stand her ground, or perhaps she isn't Westernized like you are, because it's obvious she needs to comply with her parent's wishes. You won't win either way, because if you talk her into going against her parents and she argues with her parents over whom she should marry, then you have basically made enemies out of her parents and the road will be tough for you. The parents could even get nasty about it and have you arrested if you continue to see their daughter. The bottom line is, if your ex girlfriend loved you, then nothing should stand in yher way. If she isn't a minor then there is absolutely no reason the both of you couldn't find a way where she doesn't have to get married according to her parent's wishes. It appears she doesn't want to try. The only thing I can suggest is you see the parents directly. Hopefully you are working and can provide for their daughter (although you don't have to be wealthy) and sit down and talk to them pleasantly. See if you can come to some common ground. If the parents won't budge, and your ex girlfriend refuses to fight for you, it's best to move on. Good luck Marcy

Arranged marriages are good as they happen with the knowledge of the parents. Because the parents would do the best for their children as they have more experiences, they will want to find the right person. Both sets of parents will be happy with the couple. As the marriage progresses, there is support from both families as they have agreed to the marriage. They will be more willing to help if there are difficulties, which doesn't happen if a family were never in favour of the marriage to begin with. So they will give support and this can be called on if needed by the couple.

A love marriage would be a marriage that two people have because they love each other. This is in comparison to an arranged marriage, which two people have at the instruction of their parents, or a marriage of convenience, which two people have because there is some purpose served by their marriage other than love, such as the union of two powerful or wealthy families.

Marriage in the 1700's was more of an arranged marriage where women's parents were to find a rich man for her to marry, for the success of their life, better living, and status.

arranged marriage is when your parents arrange your wife/husband. And sometimes they may even have a dowry this is when the brides father pays the husband to be the husband .

In countries where arranged marriages still occur, they are usually still prevalent BECAUSE they work. A failed marriage is frowned upon in such societies, to the extent where in some cases a woman can be injured, disfigured or even killed for trying to escape the marriage or committing adultery. In some cases, though, love, or something that looks like it, can develop between the two, and in time they may not have an issue with the fact that their parents arranged the marriage.

It's certainly possible to have an arranged marriage in Spain, but the overwhelming majority of Spaniards choose their own spouses and are not assigned one by their parents.

Yes, parents have the right to say in whom their children marry.Parents have the right to say whom their children marry because parents know what is best for their children.They have the past experience of marriage and they know who they should marry as they know their likes and dislikes and what their consequences may be.The children may be underage and the parents have the right to stop them and guide them, by teaching them the right things. The children might not know what is the real meaning of marriage and what marriage is for.No, parents do not have the right to have a say in whom their children marry.Children should make their own decisions.Forcing the children may cause them to have an unhappy marriage.The children must be independent and choose who they want to marry.Neutral.Parents may have already arranged an arranged marriage and the children might decline.Children may choose who they want to marry but the parents may decline.Both the children and the parents may choose who the children marry.

Your not with the one you love and car for. Most parents do an arrange marriage for the best. They think its a good idea for the daughter because she will be happy but actually the daughter would rather make her own choices and live with the one she loves!Written By Phoebe :)

Some people believe in love at first sight, while others believe it takes time to love someone. In the past many parts of the world, a couple met for the very first time on their wedding day. Their marriage had been arranged by their parents. Today arranged marriages still exist in many cultures however some couples are given permission to meet before their wedding day. An arranged marriage is not necessarily and unhappy marriage. Arranged marriages that meet with the consent of the couple to marry should be allowed to continue because they result in fewer divorces. however if a women is married but her husband died she can't get married again because she is considered used and damaged.

A definition of arranged marriages is, when two people are married because their parents decided that they would. However, the people the marriage is being arranged for do get a say, they get introduced to each other weeks before, it's not a blind wedding, you get to know them before hand, and also, if one of them strongly didn't like the other person, they are not forced to get married. This is where many people are mistaken: ARRANGED MARRIAGE IS NOT THE SAME AS A FORCED MARRIAGE. I think that there are mixed feelings about whether you would love someone that was chosen for you more than if you chose them yourself. The disadvantages of arranged marriages are: you don't really know your husband/wife; you probably will take a while to get relaxed around them, but it is believed that love comes after marriage. This is because the parents choose the husband/wife on horoscopes, their background, how they were raised, etc. and they pick people who are very similar, have very similar backgrounds and who are likely to get on well. love, hope :)
