Have you tried looking him up on Friends Reunited to see if he is listed on there? Maybe he has put up a member profile. Does he have an unusual name or do you know what school/college/uni he went to? It might be impossible to do a search unless you do.
well, it this whole arranged marriage thing. in my family, tis something that hasnt been done, and we dont really know how to go about it. theres a bloke who wants to marry my sis, and he sounds good, looks good etc, but, if you are not romantically in love with someone, then making the decision to be with someone and make a home with them and have kids with them etc is scary. iyswim.
just trying to reassure her, and myself really. and i think hiring a private inestigator is a bit below the belt.
so stumped really.
Um, don't know much about arranged marriages really. If he's halfway decent, and as this sounds like more of a business than romantic decision, he surely wouldn't mind providing some kind of reference and letting your family meet his family, that sort of thing. You could ask him to provide a CRB check to make sure he's not dodgy. If he's above board he would surely want to prove that he's worthy of your sister, and if he isn't willing to comply it might indicate that he has something to hide.
my parents have met his sis, and will be meeting his parents next week.
a crb check sounds like a good idea.
not exactly a romantic start to a marrieage. but the romantic route doesnt seem to be working......
i found him on friends reunited, and it confirms he went to school where he says he did. thats it really.
thanks for your help.
