I was just trying to make her understand what i meant. if the only way is to put it in all caps and bold it i will.
all the information but the mother was in there before she asked for edits, it just wasn't stated in black and white. And i have since put in that she doesn't know anything about her mother and does not care to know anything about her mother being content with her life the way it is.

Cec,

I want to know your character from her point of view.  I don't want to have to try to understand her from between the lines.  If your character's position is that she doesn't know who her mother is and has developed enough of a relationship with her father that she truly doesn't care about knowing about her mother, then clearly say that in the app.  Putting it here isn't good enough. It needs to be in the app itself.

You have not clarified why she is even thinking about arranged marriages. I understand she wants to marry for love. But arranged marriages are not part of British culture, generally speaking. Why has it even come up in her thinking that she needs to dislike arranged marriages? Clarify it in the app.

The information on your character needs to be in the app itself. Not here in the posts.

IT IS IN THE APP LAST SENTANCE OF EARLY CHILDHOOD!!!!!

IT STATES IN THE APP THAT SHE WANTS TO FIND LOVE ON HER OWN AND DOESN'T WANT TO BE TOLD WHO TO MARRY, AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE IS THE PARENTS TELLING THE CHILD WHO TO MARRY

IF THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM SAYING I WILL TYPE IT ALL OUT FOR YOU LIKE THIS

I dont' care if you make it 26 points tall. You're missing my point again.  I said I understand she wants to marry for love.  But people in England just don't think much about arranged marriages because it just isn't a normal part of life there.

"Yelling" isn't going to answer your question any faster.  Answer the question. A lot of people want to marry for love but they don't see arranged marriage as the only alternative to that.  People do get married for money or for convenience or a thousand other reasons.  Very few people in England have someone arrange a marriage for them. An arranged marriage, by definition, is a marriage where the marital partners are chosen by others based on considerations other than the pre-existing mutual attraction of the partners.

Being disrespectfull won't get your app approved sooner. But remember that being disrespectful is against site rules.

I'm being disrespectful to get myself heard. you are disregarding everything i have said. now i will go use quotes to show you where it says she does not want to be told who to marry which is what an arranged marriage is.

Alrighty honey, one last thing.

Beyond the fact that she doesn't want the person she marries dictated to her, why doesn't she like arranged marriages?

Why does she not see them as part of her life and culture?

Has she seen many of them go sour?

Also, how are we doing on the mother front? Have you and Kaiden worked it out?

I don't mean to intruude here, but in regard to Kaiden and Ciara's mother, I actually edited her name into his app a little while ago. I have it as Fiona Alisha Myers, but if Cec wants to change it, she can and I'll change it in his app.

It might well be but for the application, we do need a little bit of rhyme and reason.

Let's think about this together, okay?

We can assume it's part of the Pureblood culture to find advantageous marriages for the families as a whole as opposed to the couple; happiness doesn't come with it though often they do fall in love.

If it is something to do with her culture, part of her culture, then it would not be something she'd see to be as abhorrent or strange - it would be the norm.

Therefore, she needs a palpable reason for disliking arranged marriages.

As is part of "the way of things", he opinion would have to be informed by something she's seen in the past - for example, the marriages sour or the couple treat each other poorly.

Unless of course she has read a number of fairy tales and has determined through her own research that to arrange a marriage is wrong.

We need a little bit of reasoning here as to why it is. If it's part of her culture, it's the norm so why the change in opinion?
