it's pretty old-fashioned. nobody would go for it now that we have no-fault divorce.
for that matter, it probably wouldn't work unless we revoked women's rights. those things were usually designed to work out in the hustband's best interest
The mother and the daughter have most to do with it. The wedding is really for them. All the groom has to do is show up. Oh, yeah. The parents of the groom must have the rehersal dinner.
I got the wrong idea from your question--or did everybody else? Arranged marriages? I thought you were talking about parents who take over wedding plans--funny how we interpret things differently.
I'm not saying its wrong I believe its unfair. Everyone should have the right to decide who they dont and do want to be with.
its wrong period.people should have there own choice to marry who they want,
Wrong. You marry who you fall in love with, you don't marry who you're told to. Love first, then marriage.
Some shy young people might prefer it. But most people don't.
Sounds wrong to me, but other cultures have practiced that for centuries. I've learned to accept that and so can anyone else who loves this goofy world.
