    Arranged Marriages For The British

    A new BBC Two show will attempt to matchmake couples by using the principles of Asian arranged marriages. The series, Arrange Me A Marriage, will be hosted by Aneela Rahman...

    ...Rahman thinks traditional British methods of finding a partner - such as hoping to find one while out drinking - are "random and likely to fail".
    source

    I've noticed a lot of discussion in the media recently about how Britain could benefit by adopting key elements of Muslim and Hindu culture. Outspoken Islamic figure-heads like Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari, and now even the almighty TV show, are telling us we should be more like the guests we have welcomed into our home.

    As I've said in other threads - we are tolerant, but there's a huge difference between allowing immigrants to live alongside us and allowing them to alter British customs, traditions and laws. I can only hope that, like me, the majority won't stand for that.

    I see your point in general, but this particular proposals seems like not that bad of an idea especially since it is voluntary. How many generations have 'traditional British methods of finding a partner - such as hoping to find one while out drinking' been in place anyways?

    I agree. This TV show itself is harmless. I just thought it was a good way to accompany a discussion about whether it's right for Europeans to considering adopting some of the ways and traditions of their immigrant neighbours. Could we learn from Islam, Hinduism?

    Aneela Rahman, who is presenting this TV show does have one point I'm in small agreeance with - that hoping to find a life partner randomly whilst drunk in a crowded nightclub is perhaps not ideal.

    Unfortunately, I do see the next stage in multi-culturalism as being a move towards a new mono-culturalism where we start to blur the lines between the different new traditions in our lands. I already see small pre-cursors to this - like some high street shops forbidding the use of Christmas decorations 'because it might offend or put-off shoppers from non-Christian backgrounds' and this occassional idle chat about whether Britain could learn from its Muslim community.

    Well, the fact is that about 98% of all Muslims don't care whether someone celebrates Christmas/Yule and the likes. It's only our own liberal governments which think that anything might be offensive, and obviously a good few of them like to make use of that laxness on behalf of the gov. to push an agenda for their own ends.

    As regards arranged marriages - I fail to see how they would be traditionally non-British. You had them for many many hundreds of years. Only recently has it been that people solely marry for love, but other things, such as the family's reputation etc. etc. could be influenced by that in earlier years. Sometimes, in the feudal period, marriages were even set up to make peace between two neighbouring clans, etc. etc. Now I'm not embracing or condemning either model on principle, but if it would help to achieve one thing, then arranged marriages for the British are actually likely to generate less miscegenative couplings.

    Perhaps we subtle diviners of souls and phenotypes on the Althing should offer our services as just such an Arranging Service? Could you honestly think of any people better qualified to determine the demographic future of the British peoples?

    Oh! oh! Arrange me first!

    I think all reality shows are a little stupid. This just brings it to a whole new level.

    I don't think people getting together is the problem it's the staying together that's the issue. We already have traditional values surrounding relationships and family, we don't need gimmicks. We need people to see beyond their own noses and for families and fathers to be valued more.
