COLUMN: Cultural customs can lead to bad marital experience for both parties (News)
It is crazy how diffrent, diffrent parts of the world are.
For another example: One day Sandy asked what it ment to be classified as a dependent on a tax form. We said that it just ment that one person was taking care of another finacially. She then asked if the dependet could still get legally married without the consent of the person who is claiming her as the dependet. Obviously you can. Sometimes we take the most basic of our freedoms for granted, because we are not aware that other people do not have those freedoms.
