    @Sagojyou, I’m pretty sure the culture they are living in wouldn’t find it adequate for a 13 year old to marry a 20 year old in this day and age. However, keeping in mind that they’ve lived through a century, we can imagine back when they were younger they would be living in a culture that deems that sort of thing acceptable.

    I’m not for cultural relativity so I don’t think I would agree with 13 year olds marrying 20 year olds today – I don’t think it’s fair that someone of such a young age would be forced into marriage, which also likely means they would be expected to have sex with their partner (which is rape) and also expected to give birth. Different cultures don’t mean we should just focus with what’s troublesome in our own country and ignore everyone else – there’s the question of cosmopolitanism, and how much duty we have to aid others if they so ask for it.

    We certainly don’t take a cultural relativist approach to animal rights – if a cow is being tortured in Southeast Asia to be made into leather, it would still be torture, would it not?

    @Sagojyou that kind of age difference is questionable and illegal is pretty much all industrialized nations, not just America. India is trying to get rid of the child-bride thing but it isn’t going very well. It’s right to be concerned, because it boils down to a human and women’s rights’ issue.

    But I digress, that’s awesome that they’ve stayed married so long and I’m happy to see they squash that whole ‘Indians don’t live very long BECAUSE of the their vegetarian diet’

    That is so cute and awesome!
    And hey @ hakred, why does it matter when they got married? Different cultures, different cases. Deal with it. We’re not all living in America, you know.

    So awesome for them.

    Did any one else notice that they got married when she was 13 and he was 20?
