Arranged Marriage is a big problem in all parts of the world, including the United States. People underestimate this because America is suppose to be the land of the free, but more than 3,500 kids were forced in to marriage in New York alone between the years of 2000 and 2010. In most cases the children have no say in who they are being forced to married, it's whoever their parents deem acceptable. 

Arranged Marriages aren't only mentally abusive, but also very physically abusive. Parents believe they are doing what's best for their child but in reality they are putting them in more danger than ever. When people are forced to spend the rest of their lives with a stranger, they usually get hostile and abusive. Why is forcing someone to live with a stranger they don't trust, legal in some states?
