Modern dating sounds like a hellscape. I never engaged in 'dating' (the ritual) and I am thankful I never had to.

I met women at random stuff and dated (as in had a relationship with) the ones I liked who expressed interest. HOLY SHIT NOVEL CONCEPT.

But no no, please do spend all hours of the day "swiping" and reading bio pronouns. SOUNDS FUN.

Arranged marriages have a lower rate of divorce than Western style marriages.

“Arranged” these days isn’t quite what you’re probably thinking.

I’ve spoken to many Indians/Nepalese about it and its more of an old-school “parents approval” type situation, and the children have to aprove it too.

It’s never set in stone, it’s more like early 20th century Western marriage than medieval stuff.

Still lightyears better than fuckin tinder.

What I recall when reading about this, is that it's often the case that the couple does not have any relationship before marriage. The families arrange the match and certainly there is social pressure on the people getting married, but it is possible for them to refuse and go do something else. But the conclusion was that the ones who did go along with the marriage did have higher rates of satisfaction with the marriage and stability than is seen in Western style marriages.

Exactly why you can tell so many modern women have weak or absent fathers

Society not accepting divorce is the cause.

They also have a higher rate of inbreeding.

I have found that the more conservative a culture is, the more inbreeding it creates. Mainly because males and females desire each other but are locked down. So they end up moving closer to extended family IE second cousins and such. I am certain that inbreeding was going on at a sizable rate in Europe during the years past.

This will make tradcucks seethe but the evidence is clear.

It's most common in two populations: shitskin muslims because muh religion says cousin marriage is ok, and kikes.

Polish bride and groom. Look to the old ways of your people. Strong marriage, strong communities. In modern times, consult the old ways, your elders and your pastors.

I did the dating and club scene for a long time. Scored a lot of cat and had a series of unfruitful relationships. Then my parents set me up with a girl...daughter of a friend of theirs...ten years and lots of kids later it’s still pretty good.

Clothes are a little goofy but the picture is wonderful. Nice little courtyard/park surrounded by beautiful stone buildings.
