ok. Let me explain how an arranged marriage works. I wont ridicule you as you probably dont understand how they work, and have probably never had it explained to you. If anything, a lot of arranged marriage stories in the media are highly misleading.
An arranged marriage works like this.
Family A have a son, 20's, certain religion, and language i.e. pubjabi, or bengali. He feels its time he wants to settle down and marry.
Family B have a daughter, in her 20's, who feels she wants to settle down and marry. She is the same religion as the guy, speaks the same language. They are, potentially, a compatible match.
Family A introduce their son to the daughter of Family B. They meet, they chat, they talk, they see what they want in life, their goals, aspirations, plans for family etc. IF they like each other, they will meet a few more times, usually in private, at a resturant etc without family present to get to know each other better. Some may even date for a short time. They will then tell their parents they like each other and want to marry.
They then get married. This is an arranged marriage. They arranaged it in the sense the families arrnaged for the couple to meet. So i would say it would be more appropriate to call these marriages "introduced" marriages. Its really no different to John down the pub intrudicing his mate Barry to his wifes mate Shirly.
Now you also have an unfortune occurance of what is called a "forced" marriage, where the parents will pressure emotionally, or use threats to force a child to marry someone. This does occur but its rare, and the overwhelming majority of "arranged" marriages are not forced.
