The Dating Game: Book of Mormon Style

I wonder how the sons of Lehi (plus Zoram) and the daughters of Ishmael paired off. I'd like to hope that they had a say in the matter and that the more rebellious girls were able to marry Laman and Lemuel. (I'd feel terrible if Ishmael's most righteous daughter was assigned to marry Laman and then had to watch with horror as her new husband spent the next several years plotting new ways to murder the prophet.)

To be clear, I'm not saying they participated in some ancient version of the TV show The Dating Game, but there's nothing in the scriptures that says they didn't.
