young brides story

2

Just in case anyone thought the Princess Bride story might’ve been made up.

I had so much hair good heavens. I do not miss what the humidity used to do to it! Yeah the stage was small, so there weren’t many set pieces to go along with what they acted out from the movie, but they went all out with Buttercup’s costumes.

The other photo is me just running around the exhibits which we definitely wouldn’t have been allowed to do during the day

A Bride’s Story tells the tale of a beautiful young bride in nineteenth-century Asia. At the age of twenty, Amir is sent to a neighboring town to be wed. But her surprise at learning her new husband, Karluk, is eight years younger than her is quickly replaced by a deep affection for the boy and his family. Though she hails from just beyond the mountains, Amir’s clan had very different customs, foods, and clothes from what Karluk is used to. As the two of them learn more about each other through their day-to-day lives, the bond of respect and love grows stronger.”

════════ Stunning story from Saudi Arabia ════════

What has happened in a Saudi town recently could only take place in films and the incident itself could be a good plot for a movie focusing on gallantry and nobility.

A girl in her 20s offered to marry a man who is nearly 40 years older than her just to save her father from a long jail term because of debt.

After failing to pay his debt of SAR3 million (Dh2.95 million), the girl’s father was arrested and faced many years in prison unless he settled his debt.

But the father from the central province of Al Qasseem told his creditor he cannot afford paying back, prompting the creditor to pursue his lawsuit against him..

Fearing for her father, his sole daughter phoned the creditor and told him she is ready to marry him if he drops his case against her father, who is also old.

“She told him her dowry is SRthree million and he agreed. But he told her that he is much older than her and that he already has three wives. Yet she agreed to marry him,” the Arabic language daily ‘Al Watan’ said.

“They then agreed to meet at her house. She called a scholar to perform the marriage rites and waited for the old man, who came later with a lawyer.

“After a chat of nearly one hour, the creditor congratulated the girl for her brave and noble attitude in trying to help her father, but he told her he would not marry her because he wanted her to marry a man near her age.

“He then wrote a cheque for SR300,000 and gave the sum to the girl as a present for her future marriage.

“He dropped his case against her father and asked God to bless this girl, who he described as a phenomenon that may not be repeated.”
