Like rats fleeing a sinking ship, Trump’s daughter-in-law filed for divorce today. Fake media across the pond was promoting arrange marriages for hapless Brits! It’s not for nothing BBC is consider colonial propaganda machine. Here in US we just called them Fake Media.
One can forgive culturally devoid shit hole country like Pakistan for proudly promoting “arrange marriages”. After all why would women wanna go to office 9 – 5 when they have high chance of being killed by Islamic Terrorist gaining power! Better stay home and watch Opera & let men sort out the mess.
As pictures above illustrate modern-day tradition did not exist in India.
Interestingly enough, anyone with an access to a library can see that “arrange marriages” were virtually unknown in India. What South Asian had would be called multi-generational commune where parents, and grand-parents, and their children live in a large house. When kids were financially sufficient they would either pick a woman for themselves, or get help from the elder.
Under the brutal thumb of British imperialism, and terrorism most of Indians adopted European traditions & attitude. Consolidating power, and keep it among rich families. Much like Queen Victoria was “the grandmother of Europe” Indians were marrying their kids among rich, and powerful. For all practical purposes European kings & Queens were related to each other, and so are current day Indian elites.
Both stories raises one question: Are there any benefit of marriages?
None! In the past marriages brought resources, as well as physical labor. These things don’t matter with modern technology, and transportation.
Just think about it Trump’s daughter-in-law had everything you can think of. Her father-in-law is the president of USA, she was treated like a princess. They even had five kids. Yet she filed for divorce.
What chance mere mortals like us have?
