Not her! Really?
Thursday 8/21/08: Now this one isn't about me, but it surprised me so much I have to say it is the most noteworthy part of my day. I found out that an old friend of mine is getting married through a culturally arranged marriage. What surprised me the most was not the idea of an arranged marriage so much as the fact that this head strong, very acculturated women chose to subscribe to her family/religious custom. In a million years I would never have guessed it. I have a lot of thoughts as to whether or not my own culture would be better off with such a pattern. Perhaps more to come on that.
