I think this is an interesting idea. Not for everyone, certainly, but he
does have a good point - friends usually know when a relationship is
doomed before the person involved does. Taving your friends - who
presumably know you very well, and in a very objective way - pick a spouse
for you is not a bad idea. It's almost... tempting. Personally, I don't
know if I'd marry the person on the spot, but then again maybe that makes
for a reason to really try to get to know each other. At any rate I wish
them well!
