Those that I know personally don't betray any symptoms that mark them out out from people that use other dating services. It's the role playing that gets me. The arranged marraiges didn't take off as the Indian or Hindu model is no longer popular in the West and hasn't been since the late nineteenth century and early 20th apart from with Royals.
Well depending upon how you define 'arrange marriages' I'd be inclined to beleive that there were more than that. Within my own group, there were two member who married Foundation group girls during the summer that they left St James. Personally I found the idea of marrying someone more than 12 years my junior (and often more than 15 years) somewhat freaky. Had I stuck around and followed the same course, I doubt if I would have escaped.
