But do they have better odds because the people end up having better marriages.<br />
Or because they come from places where social norms regarding divorce is stricter, and having one would put a family in deep shame, so instead of divorcing they stay in unahppy marriages?
They also say that the longer you wait to get married, the higher chances you have at succeeding at your marriage. Don't marry anyone until you know yourself!
The only reason that arranged marriages have "better odds" of lasting is that among the traditional and socially conservative societies and peoples where this happens,divorce is either not an option,or,if it is, those who decide to split up are usually despised and shunned.
Sure - that'll be a fee of $2500, please....
The Western perception of it is completely skewed (I know this because I have lived in one my whole life). They don't 'succeed', they only stay together because parents and others won't let them leave.
A western country, that is.
