I would say this heavily depends on the parents' and child's relationship. I know if I allowed my mom to have her say, I would have married someone who was abusive. I left him and decided to meet someone I met online and she was not having that. Come to find out she considers him her favorite son now. Go figure! Some parents don't know what is best for their children and shouldn't have a big say or role in who they choose to marry.

It is understandable that parents want their children to be happy, but the happiness of the children and the happiness of the parents may be different…

Not at all. Matters of relationships should be left to the two persons in love. No one should decide for you not even suggest the kind of person you should get. Relationships should be born from friendship and trust. If any of this miss, it will not last for the long haul.
It's important to be able to build friendship and trust.
Thank you for your good advice！

I agree with Debbie in that this depends on the relationship between the parents and children. In my case, I think I'd want my parents to weigh in if I decide to get married. However, the involvement should be limited to making their opinions known rather than making the final decision.
The parents are experienced, so it's very much worth asking their opinions for reference.

Not really, but it's very wise to take their opinions into consideration.
They usually can tell when someone's no good for you. It just comes with experience.
I wanted to interact with more people and more experience in order to distinguish those who are not good for me.
