Pros Both families support the couple. There is a greater chance of the marriage succeeding. The couple spends the rest of their lives trying to figure each other out. Both individuals share the customs and traditions which lowers the chance of incompatibility. It is arranged by elders, who have more experience about living in society. There is a lesser chance of divorce. Cons The individual does not have the chance to choose their spouse. In the relationship, women are often beaten. It allows for interferences from extended family, which creates an excessive amount of stress on the couple. Most of the time, the couple never experiences love. If the couple can’t stand each other, they are still forced to stay together by their family and society. http://www.ehow.com/info_8100517_advantage-disadvantages-arranged-marriages.html

Immigrants, such as Indians, still hold on to their custom of having arranged marriages. However, because of the freedom in America, couples are able to see each other and court before the marriage. Mormons, a religion originated in the US, have arranged marriages too. Lastly, a person’s social status has an effect on who he or she marries. For example, if they are a wealthy person, they marry someone who comes from the same status as them. A multi-cultural society, beliefs, and social ranking are factors that contribute to the spread of arranged marriages in the US. http://www.alternet.org/story/92561/the_rise_of_arranged_marriage_in_america
