Finally something to which I can contribute. I am 27 my wife is 26 we are both doctors and we had an arranged marriage. I may be biased but I think at least for me this has worked out better. I had many social issues and a really low self worth. I got matched to a really lively girl. I panicked when it started and I nearly ended the engagement because I thought we were so different how could this ever work. What I was not expecting was how much I would fall in love with her. She awakened my sleeping lively side. She brings joy and fun to my life to the extent that I get depressed if I don’t see her face in the morning. I love her totally. If I had been left to my own devices I would never have thought myself good enough for her. Now our life is looking up as I just got a residency and I tend to think that is due to the luck brought to me by her. tl;dr had an arranged marriage freaked out a bit in the beginning now she is my life.
