    Hi all,
    how would you say "combined marriage" or "combined engagement" both in EA and in MSA?
    A girl and a guy who don't really get to know each other and the family (or someone else) arranges their meeting and engagement.
    Thanks

    In English it is called "arranged marriage". "Combinato" is Italian.

    Thanks for the tip... anyway I think it also exists, even if maybe it is not the formal version.

    The meeting is arranged - the engagement may or may not follow.
