What Would You Say to an Arranged Marriage?

How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky by Lydia NetzerToday we're joined by author Lydia Netzer, whose  How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky has just been released. How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky features two astronomers whose mothers raised them to be one another's soul mate—talk about a matchmaking mama! However, could there be benefits to an arranged marriage...even a modern-day one? Lydia is here today to talk about arranged marriages around the world, and makes a case that maybe they aren't so bad! Thanks, Lydia!

“I’ll never marry him! You can’t make me!”

How many plucky heroines have launched their glorious coming-of-age with this proclamation? Spitting the words at mean mommy and dense daddy, young girls from fairytales and modern fiction alike stake their claim on romantic freedom. They want the right to change their destinies by choosing their own boyfriends! Oh no, this princess will NOT marry the prince from the neighboring lands, even if it means peace in the valley for the next thousand years! And no, even if every servant girl or pig keeper’s daughter or half-android mechanic yearns to marry just such a prince, you can’t force love, and you can’t force marriage.
