I'm sorry, i don't mean to offend you, but if arrange marriage turned out good in your family,
then what are all these story of the males in your family beating up the females in your family?
Does that sound like a good stable happy marriage to u? Tell me honestly.
That's all on my dad's side of the family, that all traces way back. (and is still really bad)
On my moms side of the family there have been arranged marriages as well, however they've all worked out wonderfully.
So as I've said before. They can mess up, yes, but they've worked out well in my family.
As for my abusive stories. My father doesen't abuse my mother anymore. He's learned a lot more.
And it's totally fine. You didn't offend me at all, you're allowed to voice your opinion.

More importantly, the girl usually gets blinded in such attacks.
Last time I checked, someone got 8 years in prison for an acid attack and was asked to pay restitution (i.e. he was made to pay for the girl's reconstructive surgery). However, such surgery only restores the victim's basic appearance, not the old face. More importantly, the new face isn't anywhere near as expressive as the old one.
The victim's lips are also usually burned clean off in acid attacks, so the victim is effectively left unable to communicate if she's also been blinded.
Needless to say, acid attacks are a crime against personhood, and IMO, it is the only crime for which retributive justice is ok. (since in my view, a criminal against personhood who shows no remorse during the trial looses personhood on the grounds of impaired judgement. And when a human looses personhood, human rights charters do not apply. Acid attackers should be given LWB and bathed in hydrochloric acid.)
However, stem cell reseach has the potential to completely restore acid attack victims (in theory), since all the lost organs can be regrown. Even the disfigured part of the skull can be regrown in a lab and grafted on. And since stem cells are harvested from the patient's own bone marrow, anti-rejection drugs are not needed since organs grown from stem cells are inherently compatible with the patient's immune systme if they are harvested from the patient.
But such advances in stem cell research are still to come. And even if such advances are made, the attacker still deserves life imprisonment (however, once the victim is completely restorable, then the need to disfigure the attacker is gone. Parole, however, should only become a possibility if the victim is completely restored AND the attacker shows remorse in front of a mental health comittee).
I forgot to leave that out. Jeeze.. blindness would be terrible. I've read about many acid attacks.. it really is a terrible crime.
If those things with the stem cell research could actually work out, I'd be really happy. I hope that works out for the survivors of acid attacks.

well good luck on finding a virgin
anyone can lie and say they are virgin when they are not
lol the girl can act innocent when she knows full well that she aint a virgin
what std did he catch?
I realize that, and I can't really do anything about her being a virgin or not. Like I said it's something really important to my PARENTS. I'm just abstaining since I feel I should lose it to the one I marry, and that in the case that she actually is a virgin, it'd be unfair if I slept around all I wanted. And I don't like the idea of sleeping around.
I have no idea what STD he caught. His family and ours aren't on good terms so I doubt they'd tell us.
