I felt that I needed to state that parents (ether mothers or fathers) are not good match makers. Arraigned marriages is like living in a Communist state where they tell you what’s going to work and what’s not going to work for you.
The argument of the parent’s know you the most is a moot point. Why? Because you know what works best for you better than anyone else.
Parents picking and choosing what which types of people their adult kids choose really is not relevant. Your opinion doesn’t count. If you do insist on arraigned marriages, I’d just say you’re an insecure nutcase who thinks you can use your kids for your own happiness. And when I mean kids, I mean your adult kids.
