more than hijab

Following on from a rather interesting conversation with one of my family today, I am putting together a piece on arranged marriage. Having lookedinto the opinions of those people from specific nationalities or races I gathered that many westerners view ‘arranged marriage” as being the same as “forced marriage’ whereas those of you from Asian or Arab countries may have a completely different perspective. I would like to ask any of you to come forward (anonymously if you prefer) and let me know your thoughts on these practices – whether for or against and reasons behind your opinions. Please be as honest as you like, but of course please be constructive in your feedback – it would be much appreciated. 

Please drop me an email at or comment below. Image
