    I hate religions were getting married is considered a shame for the bride and her family (becausr the man will enjoy her) so much that she has to hide her face out of embarassment… Gee, the soviets apparently haven’t civilized enough this remote part of the Union.

    • Boutros says:

      You’ve missed the point. The woman is so covered because she is now only his; in the same way you would protect a diamond… instead of flinging it around carelessly. And what you are calling shame is modesty; she blushes because of her virginity which is the gift of herself to him. You’re trying to turn something beautiful, chaste, and modest into something shameful yourself by asserting the hegemony of your own presumption and prejudice.

    Except for the fact that the Bride’s Father pays for all, and the bride is the CENTER of all attention (the groom dresses up and tries to look sober after the pre-wedding ‘bachelor party’), this is not so different from wedding in the U.S.

    Lots of food, drink, dancing, and a fight at the end!

    Love you, Kishlak!

    Posts like this are great…..it reveals how primitive humans still are on this wayward planet.

      I would rather say simple than primitive. In my opinion these people really have a different and more serious understanding of marriage as many of us. Actual statistics from Austria (where I live at the moment) show that 50% of the marriages end in a divorce. I don’t seed the need for a marriage in western countries anymore but in many societies its the combination of individual forces for a higher sake – the family.

      • DouglasU says:

        good points Richard. one main reason western people get divorced because they are constantly looking for hot sex. marriage is about relationship ….not about sex.

    “With two friends Jabbor climbed the roof of the house to catch an arrow through the window.
    Finally the treatment is ready. Kids are entertaining themselves by fighting.” Love those translations.

    Looks like a lot of fun!

    Some people get married jumping out of a plane, some underwater, others just go to the local registry office, as long as they both enjoy it and it has meaning to them what the heck, its their life. At least they wont live to regret it and will be able to show the photographs to their great grandchildren, unlike some of the weird weddings they have in the states.
