This show is my guilty pleasure.  I do feel for those poor girls growing up like that.  That show is an instant self-esteem booster imo.  You could be having a bad day and watch that show and be able to laugh and say “at least I’m not that chick!”.

 

Next time I dress up for Halloween I think I want to be a Gypsy bride, lol.  (not as huge a dress though)

They bother me more than the UK gypsies. I feel like they’re more extreme.

I generally am a fan of “If it is their traditions, let them live” but having seen a few of these, I can’t believe that. These young girls are ill-educated, and stuck in a system of being used as breeding stock and housemaids for abusive and boorish men.They aren’t given the option of doing anything different!! It is so tragic to me.

I can’t watch. It annoys me that these girls are raised to basically depend on a guy and get married. Everything they do is based on finding a guy.

Is this the episode where the girl says they dated online, then he proposed via text message? Because they’re not allowed to date until they’re married?

I live in the town where one of the episodes took place. I was shocked to learn that’s how gypsies are… I was also shocked to learn that a girl I went to high school with was a gypsy. It is very tragic, specially when you see the episodes of the girls who do want to do something else with their lives and are told THEY are the odd balls.

I grew up being afraid of gypsies. My Irish mother told me they were horrible thieves who would rob us if I ever opened the door to them or talked to them.

I have to say that these shows make me sympathetic to the women. They all seem so stuck, but totally ignorant. It reminds me of the myth of the cave…
