As ideal as our elders might deem arranged marriages, the very process of ‘arranging them’ can get mighty awkward for everyone involved. You cherry pick a guy and girl on who knows what weirdly specific basis, and then you ask these strangers to ‘talk things out’ during a family meeting. I mean, what are the chances of things being ‘easy and comfortable’ here. With little time to get to know one another, the to-be couple gets bombarded with personal questions by each family to see if they are in fact a good fit. It’s very much like a first date except you take away the romance and dial up the awkwardness. Oh! And your whole family is there too.

Quorans held a discussion on the weird questions thrown around in a first meeting for an arranged marriage. So, if you have already been signed up for such a first meeting, you better brace yourselves for some awkwardly inquisitive questions. Also, in case if you have had an arranged marriage, see if any of this sounds familiar:
