Nick is a man who seemingly has all he needs in life. He has a great and rewarding career and a caring family but, one thing he doesn't have is the bragging rights he so desperatly wants. Nick has always had the theory that the downfall of lasting marriages and the increase of the divorce rate in the world is all due to people marrying for the fallacy of love. To prove that for a marriage to work you shouldn't love your partner and should instead use them for complacement and procreation, Nick sets out to marry someone he doesn't love. When proposals to his ex's fail, Nick on a whim, asks his nosey waitress, Annabelle to marry him. To his surprise and hers', she agrees. 

They're married within the hour and soon everything becomes real. Nick has to find a way to prove his theory while also learning to live with a stranger. Annabelle wants security in life but now she's faced with sacrificing her dream of a real life romance, all in the hope of disproving something she always believed in. Who will win in a game of love when neither player is playing for keeps?

And these arrange marriages have lasted compared to love marriages which end up in divorce in few years
                              So the theory of getting married on only basis of liking but no love does exist and gradually with years both partners develop a loving relationship

I read this long ago and remember liking it
                              To refresh will read again
                              Arrange marriage is what happens in my country
                              Love marriage frowned upon
I'm not sure whether it's more amazing that he proposed, or that she accepted. :)

😂 never works. Even throughout an arranged marriage, he may fall for someone whether it's his wife or not.
