Default Re: Why one Muslim girl became a born-again virgin for her wedding night

I was acquainted with a Syrian couple a few years back, who were dreading their two daughters' teen years. They desperately wanted to make enough money to move back to their home country.
They were like many of us in that they really
didn't know just how different the West was from the East till they encountered it face to face.
They were concerned about protecting their daughters from America's culture.
Who is to say what is right or wrong within another's core belief system?
The rituals that we (and they) see as barbaric in the other are tied to what has kept us each from disappearing from the face of the earth: Faith.
But now that the word is out, I wish these people would take more precautions allowing their children access to Western culture.
