love-cum-arranged marriage
 n.— «“Instead of seeking extensively for a bride,…consulting lots of people and taking much time, I suggested to him a girl he had known for some years. I would not have proceeded had my son not agreed. I would never force him into such a decision.” Another member of the family referred to this as a “love-cum-arranged marriage.”» —by Susan C. Seymour Women, Family, and Child Care in India Jan. 28, 1999. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
