College education and arranged marriages: A recipe for family drama?
A woman wonders if she's an AH for telling her sister she should have gone to college if she wanted a life like hers. Coming from a culture where arranged marriages are an option, the poster and her twin sister graduated high school and took different paths. While the poster pursued higher education and a career, her sister became a wife and mother. Years later, the sisters live very different lives, with the poster's family being more financially stable due to her college education and career. When the poster's sister expressed grievances about their children not having equal opportunities, the poster lashed out and told her sister that if she wanted a wealthy husband, she should have gone to college. Now the sisters are not speaking to each other. Is the poster an elitist AH, or was she telling the truth? Join the conversation in the comments below.
