It was “normal” in the nineties in Georgia. But I realize that it’s still happening somehow…

All my childhood I listened to stories about how some boy or man with friends would steal a girl to get a married with her. Sometimes girls didn’t even know who their future husbands would be but they didn’t have a choice and decided to stay. It was a big shame to come back home after getting stolen. Everybody knows that you are not a virgin anymore. Who will marry you after that?! Families too didn’t want to get them back because now you have a new “owner.”
