Facebook: ""We had an arranged marriage. It worked for our parents, it worked for our grandparents, and it worked for us. We met three days before our wedding, and it took us time to fall in love, but we are definitely in love."
When did you first realize you were in love?"
"One day, I realized that for the last several weeks, someone had been happy to see me every time I'd gotten home. And it felt really good.""

I wonder if there are some statistics about the happiness of arranged marriages versus non-arranged marriages and the happiness in each.
Suppose for a second that arranged marriages are happier than non-arranged marriages. What would that mean for economic theory?
