No one should be forced to marry a relative. However, as an American, I can do nothing abbout the customs of another culture/people.<quoted text>
Well......... that might explain why they are so violent. I always thought that's why middle-east people were that way; screwed up gene pool.
We had a murder here about a decade ago and the murderers were set free. Where they came from, the parents made pre-arranged wedding plans for their babies. The parents planned for their daughter to marry her cousin. Well, she's not from the middle-east, her parents were. She was an American and didn't give two ships about middle-east culture.
The male cousin became enraged because she disgraced the family. So he and her brother killed this woman. Because of the culture and religious thing, the prosecution didn't put a lot of energy to convict the two male cousins.
Once a foreigner comes to the US, that is their chance to dispose of previous customs and become American.
Our problem is not that we breed with family. Problem is we breed with EVERYONE'S family.
