Modern Bride? Not really…
Welcome back to a regular feature we like to call “What Year is this Again?,” in which we offer up news items which make us seriously question which century we’re living in.
Here in the United States, if a guy asks a woman to marry him and she says no, he customarily starts dating her best friend, instead.
But over there in Chechnya, he gets his buddies together and kidnaps the very person who has just made it clear she doesn’t want to marry him.
Then, a local leader brokers a deal between the two families. Unfortunately, I am not making this up.
I’m guessing most guys tend to propose marriage over there during non rush-hour times, in a place with easy highway access, right near the so-called “Ramp of Romance.”
