Nor was it acceptable in Western history prior to "love" marriages. I still see it as cross-cultural, traditional vs. modern issue. While easterners do see themselves far more as members of group, or families, like it's genetic, let's admit: They are still very far behind the developed western nations in so many ways. In general, they STILL don't have basic human rights freedoms. Come on, look at China. Much industry and many features of modern society, but hey, they are still living in a very long past, dying world. Exceptions of course, soom Asian nations are far more modern, yet I can't name one.
