Pretty fucked up huh? You would think in this day and age we would be more liberated and more open to more freedoms. Now I am not trying to insult someone who makes a conscious choice to save themselves for marriage, what I am talking about is forcing kids to get married that are having sex.
My sister was 19, her boyfriend was 20. His father is so old fashioned and set in his ways he viewed it as a “sin” for them to engage in sex because they weren’t married. Its the Muslim way and he is very religious. My parents are Muslim too, but more liberal, only because they had their hands full with me as a teenager. I was already out the house at 17 while giving the finger to my parents on my way out because they were too strict. This led to me not finishing high school and never going to college. Just a starving 17 year old working in retail to make rent.
Anyway, enough about me. This forced my parents to loosen up a lot, and my sister had pretty much a good life with a lot of freedom because of my antics. So naturally when the thought of marriage came up for these two kids, I had to pull my mother aside and say “You’re not going to let her go through with this are you?”. When I was 19 and engaged, he had to go to jail for me to figure what a loser he was, my sister on the other hand has never been with another man, ever, and hasn’t experienced her 20s yet. Should she get married because she is having sex with this guy? Does that seem right? Its her life right so who am I to say?
I’m 33 and still single. Maybe my sister is on the right path? Thoughts are welcome please.
