So I have been watching TV and quite a bit of it lately. Big fat gypsy wedding somehow comes up…gypsies in America confuse the hell out of me in that they claim tradition but are fully tattoed up with everythig pierced but they insist on no sex before marriage etc.
So there is a couple who have never ever met physically. They met on the internet and decided to marry each other. No they did not even meet for coffee for 1 hour, not even under parental supervision. They were literally meeting at the altar. The bride has to wear a veil of darkness, so until the priest started due had never seen the babe’s face!
I believe even in cultures where marriages are arranged, the bride and groom get to see each other in person even if they don’t touch themselves. If I am not mistaken a lot of Arabs and Asians know beforehand the person they are to be married to. But I am wondering these people are in America oh. I knew of a Hausa girl in school who knew who her husband was – we were all about 12 including the said husband…as in pre-arranged from birth type situation and she went with her family to visit his etc whenever she was on holiday and vice versa.
My question to you, could you date someone online and meet them physically at the altar for the first time? Personally I can’t – likely because of my need to feel in control of things. Now there is no theory as to how the marriage will go from a happiness standpoint, because truly only time tells and its only God that can see into the future. Your thoughts please.
