I came across a new reality show and social experiment, titled, “Married at First Sight.” The show follows the process of couples who are matched on several different factors and meet for the first time at the altar. Can you imagine?
With the divorce rate so high for traditional marriage, the experiment is to see if people who are matched together in an arranged marriage, will far better than those who choose one another and have a traditional marriage, since the divorce rate for arranged marriage is 4%.
The show follows 3 couples through the process, wedding, honeymoon and 4 weeks after the wedding. Because the wedding is legal, the only way out is divorce. At the end of the 4 weeks, they make the decision to stay together or not.
Now can you imagine, meeting someone for the first time at the altar, knowing nothing about them; not even their name and saying, “I Do?” I know I can’t but I guess in some ways, I can understand people who are looking for love and have gone though the motions of dating and relationships that just didn’t work. I suppose, when all else fails, try something completely out of the box and this is most def , out the box!
“Married at First Sight,” is by far, one of the most interesting reality shows that I have ever watched and I am curious to see how thing play out.
Let me know what you think…
Would you be open to an arranged marriage?
