Why do parents give their culture, honour & community priority of their Children and Deen?

Me and my brother went to Pakistan, when I was 23 and he was 20, with our parents for marriage. Our parents believed that we had to get married from Pakistan within family and we had no other option. We were married to my uncle’s son and daughter – I had a bit of choice to whom I could pick (not that I wanted to pick anyone) but my brother didn’t as my dad had arranged his marriage (rishta) about 10yrs ago, obviously without my brothers knowledge!
