    I'm just going to say that if that is the life they've chosen, they should move to an area that accepts it.
  2. What's really sad is that there will be plenty, outside this 'conservative' country, who totally agree with this.

    I'll gently suggest that they don't choose anymore than I choose to love men, I fell in love with a specific man, and people should not be thought of as interchangable like that.

    Sidenote my first husband "choose" to not be gay, instead he was a gay man who married a woman who didn't know he was gay... it doesn't work out so well, and no amount of willpower changes that.

    [​IMG] Sad. I support love. No matter the form it comes in. [​IMG] They should be targeting killers and murderers not a couple who keep to themselves and haven't harmed anyone.

    Quote:With all due respect to the poster I quoted, I think the only thing more sad than this couple being jailed for their engagement is the mentality that they should "move to an area that accepts it." I can't imagine how I would feel if we woke up tomorrow and the roles were reversed, and someone told me as a woman, that if I "choose" to love a man, then I should move away from the home that I know and love. I don't think a couple in love should move anywhere. I think society should "move" their minds in a forward direction and worry about their own back yards. Just sad.

    Quote:In poor countries like this, it is unlikely that they have the option to move to a country that accepts it. Even if they could, they may not qualify to immigrate to one of those countries, especially if they are not college educated or have a valuable trade skill.

    Besides, I am a stright woman and no way could I stay away from men just because I lived in a country that didn't accept it. I feel for thier plight.
