That gypsy wedding show is so interesting. They are very loyal to their culture will only marry within their culture. The girls aren't allowed to converse with the teen boys- the teen boys flirt with other girls of other cultures and apparently get their practice with them.

Interesting. I kind of admire some aspects of the culture but others are bizarre. What do you think? Have you watched the show?

Some people recognize the light but they can't handle the glare.

From what I've seen on the show, it's very strange to me.  I'm not knocking it, but it's strange to me. 

I was very intrigued with the post over in MC, but I wasn't able to keep up with it because I've been studying all week.  I hate that it got deleted.

i watched it once because i thought it was "my big fat greek wedding." (i love that movie and will watch it everytime). the episode was about was about a party they were having. i saw how they kept the girls and boys separate. what i found odd was that even though they have these strict restrictions about opposite sexs intermingling, and they have strict rules against pre-marital sex, they let the young girls dress like hoochie mamas. but i do admire their ability to hold onto their culture and traditions.

Girl Thanks----I'd rather someone point things out to me then to let me go on not knowing.

Quoting Stormywaters03:

It's Romany, but I wasn't correcting you, I just wasn't sure what show you were referring to.  It sounds interesting, I'm off to google.

Quoting Dana267:

Yes---did I spell it wrong?

Quoting Stormywaters03:

What's the actual name of the show?  When I googled Rummey the only thing that came up was this post.  Is it that Big Fat Gypsy Wedding show?

I agree.  They started it first.  But she put herself out there and she should have known that the women here will cause her grief.

Quoting GoddessNDaRuff:

she had every right to be defensive. The main thing they were asking were "why do you dress like sluts, prostitutes, whores, etc " anyone would be defensive. But she still handled it with a lot more grace than the women hell bent on finding any reason to attack her. I have to applaud her for that.

Quoting ksbondgirl:

I read it and she was very defensive about her culture but then again some moms made snarky remarks at her.  It was as bad as Christians vs. Atheists.

Quoting GoddessNDaRuff:

there was a post in confessions from a gypsy to ask her about her culture.......unfortunately they got mad at her answers to certain questions and got the post deleted.

they have and interesting culture for sure, they are also apparently one of the most hated groups of people in the world.

when the girls dress that way they are presenting themselves as eligible for marriage.
