My brother-in-lawâ€™s sister just got engaged. In a quaint use of tradition at its best, he went to her parents with his mother and step-father to ask for her hand in marriage.
Iâ€™m amazed. In all the years Iâ€™ve lived in Houston Iâ€™ve never heard of someone here actually doing this. Iâ€™ve heard about it in Mexico. Iâ€™ve been involved in an engagement where this was done. But not here.
It makes me wonder what wonderful traditions weâ€™re leaving by the wayside. It makes me Gonder what quaint little cultural norms weâ€™re erasing, one day at a time.
But not today. Today my brother-in-lawâ€™s sister is engaged. I canâ€™t wait to see the wedding.
