Getting hitched

I have a friend who is 31 and been single for the last 8-9 years (has had sex during that time though...)she wants to get married/have family but can't seem to find an "adequate" SO. therefore she gets depressed, etc, and makes things even worse.

Anyway, my questions are:

1) How important or necessary is it to be "in love" with someone in order to marry them?

2) What about arranged marriages (like in India) they seem to work a lot of the times - what do you think of that concept?

3) If you were in her situation, would you continue to look for the person that fits your "list" (yes, there is a list of must-haves and have-nots) or just try to go for whatever comes along and see how it turns out?

I think she misses out on opportunities to have relationships bc she is WAY too dependant on her "list" (fussy) and that doesn't allow her to get to know people better.

oh - 4) do you believe you can grow to love/respect a person over time or must you have that innitial lust thing going from the first meeting?
