QUESTION: i live in south asia where usualy mariages and relations of boy and girl are done by parents……
in engagement a relatn is declared among all befor proper mariage……i saw my parents decided a person to whom i was gtng engaged bt aftr engagement the person was smeone else ……he was not one about whome i was thnkng

Hi, sheeza,

This really is not a medical question, but from a USA common sense point of view here is my response:

No one should have to marry someone they don't want to marry.

No one should think their parents have arranged someone for them to marry and then find it isn't the person they thought it was.  

This notion to someone like me, that parents arrange marriages, is basically hard to understand, but if that is the cultural way it has to be for you, at least be sure all parties realize what young man they are talking about.

Hope this helps, Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
