“It's not. Just like there are trends in the Christian population that are not In accordance. When I see women dressing sexy in church, wearing painful high heels shoes to perk their behind and backless dresses...”

J Burgoyne on Apr 15, 2013 at 09:02:40

“You can claim that it is not in accordance with their faith all you want, but this is not a "trend", these are rulings from the countries that Islam comes from. It is not a splinter group. They are the highest levels of the centre of the church.”

“She wears it because she wants to and depending on where she lives, possibly also because it is expected. Every society has their way of taking care of each other and personally, I would rather be protected than exploited.”

J Burgoyne on Apr 15, 2013 at 09:10:27

“You miss the point entirely. Their form of protection IS exploitation. They subjugate women as object to own. Objectification is not a matter of seeing someone as a sexual thing, or of her expressing her sexuality, but of her autonomy. If her choice is taken away, THEN she is being objectified by having her choice taken out of the equation. Her choice or opinion doesn't matter because she is an object to be owned and "protected" from others who would lay claim to her. IF she doesn't allow herself to be owned in this way, then she is not worth owning... or in some cases even living. That is the basest of oppressions.”

“See that bothers me. I don't like killing animals, but I can tolerate it if people are going to eat it. Nobody is going to eat an iguana or python, so I have a serious problem with that. Just killing for a fashion statement. So inhumane. That should be illigal.”

“I, certainly, would need to be very hungry before trying either of these. However, iguana are considered a delicacy in many places where they live. Why not use the hides rather than discard them if the animal is to consumed anyway? As for pythons, I would prefer to see them wrapped around the waist of a human than the middle of a Florida gator, raccoon, etc.”

“But it has also been very succesful too. I know plenty of Indians who their parents found someone for their kids and it went great. Especially now days, because the kids and parents often discuss what would be ideal, rather than the parents having full reign. It protects their kids from heartbreak and being taken advantage of and passed along from one stranger to the next.”

“Depends on the situation.  I was dating a girl who's parents didn't want to see the white of my eyes because of my mixed heritage.  She knew they wouldn't deal with her if we got together.  I stepped away from that one very quickly...lol.  No issues with the girl, I just knew the road I was headed down....didn't want to make her life rougher than it would have been had she decided to buck.  So these stories are good to hear because they vary.”

“What makes you assume her life would have been oppressive? Because Indian values are different than yours? You don't think our culture leaving you to fin for yourself with men being abusive with how they date women to be oppressive?”

Lightwins on Jan 31, 2013 at 12:09:53

“Women are oppressed in India. Period. that is how I made that assumption. But women are also oppressed in different ways in the West and all over the world.”

“What if she did not like the man she was to be "arranged" to marry?”

“I don't exactly like the point of this article and the headlines. Our culture assumes arranged marriages are bad. We have bad in our culture too, and women who are arranged to be married aren't passed from one man to the next for often times half of of or entire adult life. It is a respectable thing to do, for your parents to protect from that lifestyle. I am not saying that arranged marriage is best or worst, but that this article is putting it out there like it is bad and she was rewarded for leaving. She probably could have gone along with the marriage and taken her husband here too, so furthermore I don't really see how one has to do with the other. I am sure her parents are really hurt by this.”

Daisy Snow on Mar 20, 2013 at 23:38:30

“I can understand if she lived in another part of India, a more educated part. Then yes she could take her husband with her but still, she wouldn't have time to do everything she did when you are tied to another person. What if she got pregnant?

Furthermore, yes arranged marriages are not necessarily bad but It most likely was not the good kind if it was enough for her to run away with a random couple.

Her parents are hurt? Yes sometimes for a higher good we hurt those who don't know any better, but that doesn't make her wrong. Sometimes there are other things more important. And like someone else commented I am pretty sure her parents are happy with a millionaire daughter.”

“Oh yeah and all the husbands are so obedient that they will let their wives pursue their dreams so you got to take your chances arranged marriage at 17 is illegal”

“I'm sure her parents are really proud of her and are extremely happy to have a millionare daughter to help care for them in their old age.

I sense regret in your posting. Are you in an arranged marriage and now regretting it subconciously so you are trying to bad mouth this woman? Or did you send your own daughter off to an arranged marriage and are trying to justify it?”

souix55 on Jan 31, 2013 at 11:37:57

“Women are men's equals. They can and should choose the pathway of their lives. Just the word "arranged" speaks to the fact that she did not have a choice.”
