animal courtship

Something I pondered this morning:
Arranged marriages are a very human invention. As far as I know, most animals do not have anything like arranged marriages. On the other hand, the popular western style of flirting, impressing, teasing, and attracting mates is actually very animalistic in it's nature. Weird that society so thoroughly looks down on arranged marriages, but upholds the most basic animal courtship.

The thought arose out of how different the islamic and western cultures might be from one another.
