Is networking the new arranged marriage?

If you have been following along the Sexy Brilliant journey, you may have heard me mention that I am divorced but what many of you may not know is that my husband was chosen for me - yes, you heard right - I was in a traditional marriage!

Arranged marriages are fairly common in India. In fact, my parents' 35-year long relationship is the result of an arranged marriage. The families met through common friends and decided to turn the meeting into a matrimonial alliance. My parents got engaged right after the first meeting and the second time they met was at their wedding ceremony!
