I really enjoyed the story line of Marriage of Convenience. The title is quite applicable and though marriages of convenience are less common in our time this movie showed that being "in love" is not necessary to start a good marriage. The actors were excellent in their roles exhibiting individual talent.

New data from research organizations and the US Census show the following: people who choose to marry are waiting longer, more couples are cohabitating (living together) before marriage or instead of marrying, households with more than two generations are increasing, and the average household.   For the purpose of this list of arranged marriage books I tried to stick to a pretty specific definition of the arranged marriage as being: a marriage that has been arranged for the hero and heroine by secondary parties (often for financial or political reasons), with or without their consent.
