i think.... it is so hard for women in arab to live alone without husband or family, coz their culture...... so many of mowen there afraid to divorce and choose to defend her marriage, even if they are not happy..... but it is ok! there, if woman and man marry with person although they didnt know before, ussually their family give them recomendation for the person, and many of them happy in this way.

Hello Dreamer, "Do you think that getting married with a person that you didn't know before or talk to him/her before is something good?" I don't know about those arranged marriages where they don't see each other or talk to each other before ??? If those marriages still exist it is in form of parents or relatives arranging for 2 people to meet to get to know each other and see from there ,if things could work between them. It is just like friends trying to hook one up with someone else, however the parents or relatives do that. So if such acquaintances work and reach the stage of marriage, it is certainly preceded by people getting to talk, know each other and develop a certain liking, otherwise it doesn't turn into marriage. It is for both the male and female to decide together if there is enough chemistry and understanding to develop such an initial getting to know each other into a long term relationship. If you define an arranged marriage as people getting married without even having seen each other before , I would like to know how much of this phenomena still exists in the Arab world ? 2 percent or 1 percent , if it all ??!

Sonia is right in the sense that in many countries where marriages are arranged women do not have the same rights as men, so divorce is difficult. The fact that there is a low percentage of divorces in these countries does not mean that people in these arranged marriages are happy either. I could never marry someone I had never met as I'd be afraid that I was marrying a pervert or worse.

Because women don't have the same rights as in other countries. Sonia. =)
