Bride Head Price & Lesbians
« on: May 17, 2009, 03:16:24 PM »
 ;D

So you have two Hmong lesbians, madly in love with one another.  They've known each other since high school and went to the prom together in a big group date with their loser boyfriends at the time, but both grew up and out of the whole group of high school friends.  Somehow, they remained in touch even though they lived on opposite sides of the country working their professional careers.  One is a marketing executive at a mid-sized engineering firm, and the other is the head chef at a five star hotel.  Suffice to say, they had a chance encounter at the Fresno New Year of 2009 and realized, upon first seeing each other in years, that all those emails, IM's, and txt messages back and forth these 8 years have been for a good reason --- they're both madly in love with one another.

After spending the next two years seeing each other every month or so and stay connected online and by telephone, they decide to get married.  Herein, however, lies the problem.  According to the culture, who, then, would be responsible for the bride head price and how much is it for?  And what last name will they choose?

"According to culture" is grossly incorrect, this marriage is the furthest from Hmong culture.  I say throw culture out the window and just have an amazing celebration.  Best of luck to them.  :)  Both sets of parents should also look beyond gender lines and be happy that their daughters have found someone loving and supportive to spend the rest of their lives with.

According to the culture, we would have taken these two and fed them to the lions already.

;D

This is not a marriage in Hmong culture. 

So, no bride price.

both moms "yog kuv yug, mob kuv plab, kuv yuav sau $5000". then they pay each other $5000. ;D

This might be the best answer if you based it on culture.  ;D

this just added to our culture: the one with shorter hair, is the one responsible for the bride price.

You know what they did in Long Tieng don't you?

Gen. Vang Pao would have them loaded up on a propeller airplane (dav hlau kab tsawb), fly to a nowhere forest and push them out of the plane-->this time no parachute attached.

How's that for Hmong culture?

Hey, it's true at least for the case of Vang trying to marry a Vang.

This question doesnt even dignify a response.  Notice how they date losers of the opposite sex but "discover" that they are "madly in love" with each other after 8 years of living 3000 miles from each other.  The simple question is gays cant get married according to traditional guidelines.  This is how it is everywhere else in the world.  Marriages are one of the last universal traditions but no where in there is something about two sexually confused idiots trying to get validation for their lifestyles by pretending they are normal.  Find two rich gay guys and marry them the traditional way.  The fact that these people cant even pretend to be normal tells you something.  Gay is an affliction like mental retardation and you dont tell a mental or physical midget they can one day go through the motions and pretend to be normal and no one is going to say anything about it and its a given that you get a special pass and everyone extends you some kind of immunity.  Let me guess your "friends" already have a few guys picked out to be potential sperm donors.  They just have to work up the nerve to ask them if they want to jerk off into a turkey baster.  Or better yet.  They have it narrowed down to some abandoned girl baby from china or south america for some fuzzy haired mulatto street kid.  Muahahahahaha.  OMG man are you for real.

Play them this old song about pilots of the chocolate runway but I think you get they will get the underlying message:

Gay marriage is not yet an acceptable form of marriage in our community, but if it were...

... I imagine the bride price would have to be paid by which ever clan the couple goes to become a part of.

It is true that even in heterosexual marriages, a price can be paid where the groom goes to become a part of the bride's family.  This is not unheard of.

Similarly, if the couple can decide between the two of them, which clan they will be more a part of, then that will answer the question of who needs to pay.  It really doesn't even have to be a matter of which clan they will spend more time with, or stuff like that, but more a matter of responsibiliti es.  For example, which clan will handle responsibiliti es when one of their kids get married, or which clan will handle responsibiliti es when one of them dies.  That kind of stuff needs to be hashed out and agreed on, otherwise, it isn't a marriage.
