I could be mean
I could angry
You know I could be just like you

I could be fake
I could be stupid
You know I could be just like you

you thought you were standing beside me
you were only in my way
you're wrong if you think that i'll be just like you
You thought you were there to guide me
you were only in my way
you're wrong if you think that i'll be just like you

I could be cold
I could be ruthless
You know I could be just like you
I could be weak
I could be sencless
you know I could be just like you


on my own, cause I can't take livin with you
I'm alone, So I won't turn out like you want me to

Shoot, the story appears to be gone. What was the gist of the details?

It's funny, we in the west rail against arranged marriages. But I get a magazine about psychology and the editor of it (a single guy) was saying that in arranged marriages the couple goes into it knowing they will have to work on it, and often go into it with a lot of "support" for that work - counselling sessions, joint training sessions and so on. So that actually they're way better prepared for the realities of married life than most 'love matches' and they tend to stay together better than 'love matches' do.

He even offered to do an experiment where he and a woman would agree to commit to each other and go through the first 6 months of all of that - and he sensed that with all of that support that the marriage they formed would be a happy, permanent one. With love matches, there's this fun engagement and wedding, and then they're thrown to the wolves, with no idea (or some bizarre misconceptions) about what to do next or how to get along. Which then causes 50% of them to divorce eventually.

If only they taught relationship and marriage classes throughout a child's schooling lifetime!
