This is kind of a very common fact.

If only. They don't teach about arranged marriages or marriages at all in most schools

It's literally just sitcom fodder though. Like, every movie or TV show that features a wedding will inevitably have this trope.

But that doesn’t connect it to the arranged marriage part. I think that’s the interesting part that people are talking about

It’s called a ranged marriage because the bride and groom had to stay far away from each other

A lot of us Jews still have a tradition not to see each other for the week before.

I wonder how many of y’all after a week apart are like “you know what, I’m good. See yea!”

It was bad luck if she was ugly as f*ck.

This is actually the reason though. There was a fear that if the groom saw the bride before he might run, but if he sees her at the alter there was no way out.

In the UK it’s traditional for the groom not to see his bride the day before the wedding for luck.

Arranged marriages, like slavery, are some of the most awful things people have done to each other throughout history

Ehhhh, not even close. Coercion sure, but assuming it’s consensual it’s really not that bad. Arranged marriages tend to be fairly successful
