TLC Has a new show, Married by Mom & Dad. This series allows the parents to choose their new son or daughter in law.

Should Parents have a Say

TLC has a new televison series: Married by Mom & Dad. As the series name suggest, the participants in the series are paired with a spouse based of their parents playing matchmater. I do not have the information about the lenght of the courtship, but it does not seem very long.

Do I Like It?
No, I do not like the idea, at all. I do not like the idea because the parents may not give their child the person they want. For example, Sallie may want a manly man, but her parents give her the complete opposite of what she wants. In other words, the parents may overlook the type of person their child wants, for the type of person they want their child to marry.

The idea is not make sense to me, but it does have a few pros. First, if the parents know their child, they will choose the right person for their child. Secondly, the parents should have a better time getting along with their new son or daughter in-law. This is so, because they choose their new in-law.

Anyone that saw the trailer, could easily point out a few cons. First and foremost, they may not get to know the most important things about the person. Johnny may have a good job, but he may be abusive toward women. In addition, Sarah maybe mother material, but she may also be a gold digger.

Would I do it?
If you read the second paragraph, you can guess what my answer is, no. I do not want my parents choosing a wife for me. I would rather choose my own wife, because it will be my marriage, not my parents.

Arranged marriages are the norm in many societies across the world - there is nothing new in this idea.

I know that some cultures love this type of marriage. I could not marry a woman that I did not love.

My culture used to have arranged marriage something like you described, but things have changed and many young people are select their own patners. Nice sharing.

My husband left me for another woman 3 months ago and ever since then my life have been filled with pains sorrow and heart break because he was my first love whom i have spent my entire life with. A friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of a spell caster called Dr Unity that he can bring back lover within some few days, i laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she consulted the great priest on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after 2 days my husband called me for the very first time after three months that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through.He came back to me and now we are happy together. I still can’t believe it, because it highly unbelievable. Thank you Dr.Unity for bringing back my lover and also to my lovely friend who interceded on my behalf, for any one who might need the help of this great priest here is the email address: , you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,his website:
