Pakistan Couple, Jailed For Love, Released

I know, respect for other cultures is important and all… but getting your daughter sent to jail because she married without your consent? That’s really uncool. At least they didn’t “honor kill” her.

Couple, 33 and 104, Reportedly Marry For Love

That one’s interesting. Well, good luck to them. Also, one of the few times I’ve seen a guy point out his spouse’s poverty as a feature rather than a flaw (as proof he’s marrying her for love rather than money). He’s husband #21… that’s very impressive for a woman that’s never practiced polyandry.
