    Cultural differences & tradition.

    We all know different country's have different cultures and beliefs, some more than others.

    So what strange beliefs have you come across?

    Bulgaria has a wife market. Not a smelly fish market, not a meat market, not a fresh vegetable market but a yes a wife market. Men go to the market to buy a wife. Per kg ? Not sure.

    Interesting video.

    True - a wife has a certain viable life/use by date 555!
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    One of those girls was quite a looker. But on the whole, quite an ugly bunch really... so are the guys not allowed to marry outside the group either? I bet the guys aint virgins...

    There is discrimination where people are discriminated against from outside, and there is discrimination promoted from inside..
    This is Roma people accepting only Roma to form partnership, so options are limited.. Speed dating events seem only logical..

    Though it's not really speed dating.. for a date.. it's speed dating for a marriage?

    I guess better than completely arranged...

    I don't really see a problem with arranged marriages. It works well in many country's. The parents in most situations know what there own kids needs (and family's needs) in a partner and are better to choose than the kids................... Shit I know my mum would have never chosen my 1st two wife's ....55

    Well I don't like the concept of marriage full-stop... let alone arranged ones... 55

    The fad of the family unit will pass and be looked back as a quaint tradition that lasted a couple of thousand years... then back to how it always was within the next hundred years... the concept of marriage will die with religion. I also predict that in a 100 years most pregnancies will occur via IVF.

    Those who are lucky enough to still be alive, can post their thoughts here in 2117.

    Arranged marriage was the means to getting married in the past. These days we tend to think of it as barbaric ancient way, and we think we're lucky we're in the modern age where we get to choose our own brides.

    Well, I'm telling you folks. There is SOME wisdom in the way of arranged marriage. When shit goes down, at least we'd have our parents to blame.
