For the past week, I have been reading about this guy who had his wife killed and himself shot just so he could be with his mistress. Oh, and he also swindled some old gay guy out of $2M, so he clearly was not a guy with a winning personality. The thing that bugs me about all of this other than the senseless death of a woman who leaves behind two children, but also the years of abuse she suffered at the hands of this a-hole simply because if she left him it would bring shame to her family. It was not love that brought the couple together it was their parents. To me this is never a good recipe. Oh sure, couples who go the traditional route also can end up dead and abused, but I bet there must be some study out there that shows that arranged marriages lead to much more, plus it leads to sexual abuse like in the Warren Jeffs case or people marrying off their 13 year old kids or younger to old men because the old men have money. I just think there is way too much on the negative to keep letting this kind of thing happen.
