This paper explores what an inappropriate relationship is and the taxonomy scale used to evaluate different relationships, specifically, arranged marriages. Arranged marriage is a topic that is considered taboo depending on global location. It is more prevalent in Eastern nations such as India, China, Oriental countries, and the Middle East. However, Western influence plays a significant role on what is and is not acceptable, as societal norms differ from place to place. What is defined as normal by culture is what helps to define if a relationship is or is not viewed as inappropriate. This paper is designed to explore arranged marriages and determine, based upon a preexisting classification system, whether they are appropriate or inappropriate. When analyzed as a whole, arranged marriages do not seem to fit the categories or aspects that make a relationship inappropriate.
