“All im saying is that love is not love when its forced.”

that’s exactly right. You don’t have to love your father who choked you. You absolutely do not have to love your family, or anyone for that matter. But that doesn’t make is accurate to say that familial love isn’t really love at all, just because you don’t have it for your family. As for arranged marriages, many of these couples do grow to love each other and have strong marriages, and many couple who aren’t arranged but choose to marry end up hating each other.
