The parents told me, if people are together they should get married, simple as that.
They suggested i should do some custom where it's like a 'declaration of a relationship' and it has family members who witness it.
They are smiling so you figure it was probably a good thing.
You can’t help but stare at the white bow on this groom’s left arm though.
In the recent past, we’ve tried to make our non-Chaldean friends comfortable at weddings by inviting them to pre-parties, making wedding programs, and having more “American music time.” The truth is that Chaldean weddings are different, and we want our friends who come from different backgrounds to understand our customs and appreciate our culture, even when some of us don’t have a clue either. Regardless, it’s a sign of love and respect, and those who do it are usually very close to the bride and/or groom.
Have no fear — they’re not gearing up for war; they’re just expressing their joy and it’s another way of saying, “congratulations!
I can see the potential, but I don't feel ready for such a massive commitment yet and this goes for any girl. They informed me that the fact she is out with me could possibly make her look like a loose woman, if not a slut because in their culture they don't believe in girlfriends and boyfriends.
I'm too young for this, I just started my career and i need time. I can see how they take it very seriously because when I'm out with her and a member of the Assyrian community spots her, he/she gives her a bad look.You’re amazed by how many photographers the marrying couple has hired only to realize there is just one, and the rest are their relatives.When the groom walks down the aisle, you are jolted out of your seat because the women start making this shrill, bizarre sound with their mouths.I'm a young man in his early 20's with an Italian background.Not long ago (couple of months) i met this beautiful Assyrian girl who i fell in love with. I met her family and they like me a lot and its the same thing in regards to my family with her. One thing is notice is that among Assyrians, women have expectations to get married as soon as they reach adulthood and it generally involves a man asking for her hand.I'm a Mexican-American, and this is how I'm goinng about it, plus it helps if you're Catholic too, like her. I'm learning the Chaldean Culture, tradition and language.
