An arranged marriage may seem like a dreadful fate, but studies have shown that it actually works. "Married at First Sight" actually has a better success rate than some would assume. 23 percent of marriages from the show have been successes. But the show isn't the only example of successful arranged marriages. Writer Mira Jacob spoke to Vogue and say her parents learned to love each in their arranged marriage: 

Growing up in New Mexico in the 1980s, I took it for granted that my parents’ marriage, which was arranged by their families in India in 1968, would last forever. True, it lacked the palpable electricity I saw between some American couples, but so what? Who said all that hugging and kissing was a good thing? Too many of my friends’ once-­affectionate parents were splitting up. My parents, in contrast, were remarkably solid, a well-thought-through match of religion, goals, and socioeconomic standing, clearly in it for the long haul.
