- Wedding: February 2011
Today’s Oprah was about marriage around the world and it was really interesting. It talked about marriage in Denmark, Egypt, India, and Ukraine. Included was a mail order bride from Ukraine with her American husband and a couple from India who had an arranged marriage.
Oprah said (although I am always skeptical of statistics) that 60% of the world’s marriages are arranged. The couple that she interviewed stated that in India you have some input regarding who you are arranged with, but as soon as you find someone you think you COULD love some day, you get married and you just hope to fall in love later. I find that fascinating!
