Rules of Engagement

When I think of Shirley Bassey I recall two iconic songs which had peculiar titles: 'Goldfinger' and 'Diamonds are Forever'. But whilst men probably reminisce about the callous adventures of a womanizing, gadget-sporting, trigger-happy spy with a licence to kill, women are reading between the lines (And if you still haven't had your Eureka! Moment at this point then you are obviously a tom-boy). Gold = Ring = Finger. Similarly Diamonds are…self-explanatory.

Wedding in Absentia

When you fall deeply in love with someone you are bound to face a few obstacles along the way. What if your love was put to the ultimate test and you’re thousands of miles away from your partner, would it endure? For determined long distance couples this could be a walk in the park.

Arranged Marriages Anyone?

Arranged marriages have been a topic of interest for centuries. Authors across the ages have explored this theme at length, and it still surfaces in literary works today. What's the appeal? Is it the fascination with the lack of lust and desire we cultivate in North American society? We strive on the element of danger, of the forbidden, while an arranged marriage is usually a safe way to ensure a family's approval of a union.
