It seems like finding marriage partners would be quite difficult, and you'd have to draw from a very large population group to get a plausibly large pool of possibilities. Probably OK in a large city, but in small town you'd have to shop around in a large region that uses the same system. And you'd probably need a class of professional marriage brokers.

Since a class of professional marriage brokers would be necessary, couldn't such a class grow to form a ruling class in the society, as they would have the power to determine who can marry whom, which could have major consequences in any society?

A ruling class that busies themselves arranging marriages among the commoners? Doesn't seem so likely.
