Jessica you are right:they have no respect as to age,social status,marriage,etc.,because they simply do not care.
From the beginning,they do not see us as a wedding matherial but rather of what they can get from us to their advantage.
They don't care about your personality,intelligence,beauty.They could care less about you being hurt by them,your feelings and emotions are not important.
They do not know what love means, and even if they experience it-they see it as a primal instinct to bear children but not to have true feelings for someone.It is within their culture that parents are the ones who arrange for marriage, based on social status, level of religiousness, piety and decency, but there is no love in sight.
The reason behind loveless marriage is that they are well aware of feelings make person act on emotions and let the heart to rule the mind,and then after the feelings are gone(if there were any at all ) and marriage remains,they already have built family assets,got multiple children to care for,and getting divorce is not an option as it will be way too much to lose.

Feelings are out of the picture and are never the reason for marriage in Muslim culture.They see marriage as a practical thing for them.
