The Naughty Philosopher on Arranged Marriages?!


The Naughty Philosopher is all for romance.  Certain things in our modern society are making me think of how changes might come down the road.

Arranged marriages are still common in much of the world and were common in almost all the world, until not many centuries ago.

Now you have the Internet.  Maybe it will be a mixture of the two, bringing people together by algorithm, but when they meet, the chemistry still have to be there.

Again, because of the Internet, it is easy to research a potential partner.  You can find out things that might put a stop to the relationship.  Are they going to drain your finances?  Do they have family issues you need to know about and deal with.  You might want to find out what sort of drama they have in their lives.

It takes all the romance out of it, but trends come and go and in these stressful times, why add to the stress? 🙂

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
