IMO, the above offers a much better perspective on modern courtship, love and marriage.
Yes it's a better persepctive. Part of the problem with marriages today is that times have really changed, we live in an economy which makes it very hard for people to live those traditional roles. I knew a Korean man who was happily married to someone his parents chose for him when he was only 2 years old. He defended that way saying parents choose very carefully from families of the same background. He felt their way was more orderly than the American way where people date others from all different cultures and backgrounds and he pointed out they have a much lower divorce rate because compatibility is more ensured when the families are of the same social group.
