Americans have been fed the notion that they will fall madly in love and live happily ever after, which almost always is nottrue. I wonder if Americans would be happier, or if the divorce rate would be lower if their marriages were arranged?It is interesting how different the definition of marriage is in America compared to India. How do each of the families really benefit from arranged marriages?Do berdache become berdache by personal choice? Can they be forced to become one?If the bible had not condemned gays, would western society feel the same as it does currently?
