Arranged marriage is the union of a man and woman which is brought about by someone other than the bride and groom (“Arranged” 1). Recent research has shown that arranged marriages may have originated during the Vedic period of Indian history (Chettri 1). Although many arranged marriages generally rely on the consent of the bride and groom, in some cases, one or both of them is forced to marry without a choice and in others, they are too pressured to refuse (Reiss 1). Technically, arranged marriage is not forced marriage, but parents have been known to use foul methods that often resembled the latter such as bribery, threats or blackmail (Zuberi 1). Traditionally, parents began to choose children’s future spouse because, as said in an article on GoodTherapy.org, “some cultures believe that the choice of a child’s spouse is best made by his or her parents.” (1).
