    Woah. This is getting quite bad now.

    Yes there are problems in the West, but imo that is because we are alot more advanced than the rest of the world. The majority of Asia, Africa, et al, unfortunately is backward.
    What do you mean by "advanced"?

    If by "advanced" you mean "more economically developed" then I really don't see what that has to do with it

    Why should being "advanced" cause problems in the West?

    People go for what satisfies them and makes them happy. Its not worth us arguing on TSR ... Lets live in harmony. Its still possible ...
    You're completely right. Except sadly, whilst it's still possible, I don't think it's plausible at all. Just how humans are.

    Stereotyping the 'Asian community', for starters. Not all Asians are 'afraid' of such a relationship, as I have already demonstrated.

    You also made some absurd point suggesting that Western countries are 'more advanced' because they accept interracial marriages, inferring that Asians do not.

    Agreed! Also, the definition of advance differes from race to race. What one race may think as advance, may be seemed as out of rule for another culture.

    At the end of the day, it depends on the individuals. If they are happy with their century old traditions, then let them be as far as its nt bothering anyone else .

    I realise this point may be confusing but i have spent several years studying a variety of dictatorships and those countries affected all suffer in the form of experiencing social stages at a slower rate. this theory is applicable to those countries whereby religion is a major factor. imo because religion is the biggest dictatorship outside or america.

    Forget about it I say. The arranged marriage thing is mostly to do with the 2 families. There is no way in hell I could marry somebody I have never met. It will not happen. I would have to get to know the person MYSELF.

    one can only really get to grips with the phenomenon that is asian culture...being asian.

    regardless of your living in asia etc etc , you're still an outsider.

    I am only giving as good as I get. I love Asian culture, and am feeling rejected as I understand that however much I respect this community, they will never expect anyone who is not of their own colour (according to this thread).
    So you're basing your opinion of a whole community on the posts of a few people on an internet forum?

    This seems to show that you're not prepared to treat anyone from said society as an individual, but assume that they're all the same based on the views of a few people - a tad hypocritical, I feel.

    You also seem to have ignored those posters who have stated quite clearly that race is of no importance to them. It seems like you're only reading what you want to read.

    Grow up.

    i dont want to get married at an older age, otherwise itll get hard to find someone, i know someone who is nearly 30, and she still hasnt found a guy yet... despite her parents looking, and herself.
    Also that isnt young :p: my mum got married at 17, and had me at 18 ... a few of my cousins also got married at 19/ 20, love marriage as well

    Ok - but why are we assuming that the chronologically latest social stage is necessarily the most beneficial to society?

    No bcos have you been brought up in an asian family? Do you know any of the things that you're just suposed to know- like the rough age to get married?
    Its hard to understand unless you come from an asian family.

    mate, i love asians. i just am not feeling very happy at the mo, realising that they don't like me just because I'm not asian.
    That's not true at all. It'd just be the most "traditional" people. I mean, I see where you're coming from. A family friend (Asian) had an arranged marriage, which fell apart, then when he remarried a white woman he had to keep it a secret from his mother the rest of her (the wife's) life (the wife passed away of cancer), because his mother would never have accepted it.

    But she's, what, about eighty years old? Traditional views are changing, you realise.

    And not only that, but please remember that not all Asians view things in the same way, by any means.

    Which is why "i love asians" is a bit of an odd statement, to me. :p: Asian culture perhaps, but all Asians don't act the same way at all.

    It's just that they think because you are not asian you won't understand the thoughts of an asian family.

    I <3 you

    17 is young but in some countries it has been known that girls who have been married at a younger age.
