    Do you think there would be less divorces if parents were able to choose mates for their children?

    If parents had a say in who their children married would the unions last longer and be more compatible?

    Not in America. Parents have been trying to influence their kids forever as to who they should date. Kids usually rebel and go for the complete opposite. When you get right down to it a divorce is nothing more than one or both people coming to the realization that they made a mistake getting married to one another.Since parents are human also it's unlikely they would be (perfect match makers).
    Societies that have "arranged marriages" also tend to be very relgious as well as raised to honor their elders wishes (whether they like it or not.) In America our slogan is everyone has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We say, "You are responsible for your own happiness" and if you're unhappy then do something about it. Giving away your power to make a personal decision regarding your life to someone else would never catch on here.

    I strongly support love marriages. In India still in twenty first century a large number of people opt for arranged marriages. they do never consider of getting divorced, in spite of the fact they are not living a happy married life with each other. But due to certain restrictions and inhibitions they fear to get divorced. Rather they choose extra marital relationship. I think this is extremely unethical. When parents see that such problems are arising, either they just keep silent or try not to involve in these matters. Or sometimes, put some extra efforts so that their relationship becomes much more miserable. Though at the same time they try to terrify their son and daughters regarding the disadvantages of getting divorced. At the end, nobody remains happy, nor can quit from the burdened relationship and the relationship turns out to be nothing but a painful, long lasting compromise. So it is important to analyse each others compatibility, than just making parents happy.
