Marriage Proposals!

Today’s post is a special one. Liliane from http://blog.independence05.com/ and I collaborated on the below post. We discuss the topic of traditional marriage proposals in Lebanon. Check her post http://blog.independence05.com/2010/11/asking-for-girls-hand-in-marriage-lame.html. Also a big SORRY to those who don’t understand Arabic, I provided an English version of the cartoon at the bottom of the post (I have to warn you it loses some of its funniness though).

After 2 years

And for the non-Arabic speakers here’s the English version!

    Haha good one :D.

    You know, here in Ghana when a guy wants to formally propose to a girl and ask for her family’s blessings they actually use lines very similar to what you have up there. It’s actually sweet, the girl’s sisters gather together with her and the guy’s family say something on the lines of; we noticed a rose we admired from the roses you have. Then the “arous’s” family points to one sister at a time asking whether it’s this rose until the actual bride is picked. She will be veiled during this. From this point on, the remaining traditional procedures take place.

    The bride and groom however, meet out of their own accord no family match making or anything. The above mentioned bit is very traditional that some people are even not acknowledging nowadays.
