My moms dating my celebrity crush robert pattinson
Her father had died when she was small, and her mother had remarried. Her wedding had occurred when she was 3 years old, in a joint ceremony with her mother.Following tradition in the matrilineal Mandi tribe, mother and daughter had married the same man."I wanted to run away when I found out," says Orola, sitting in the sunbaked courtyard of her family home in north-central Bangladesh."I was shaking with disbelief." Orola's mother, Mittamoni, now 51, told her she must accept it.Among the Mandi, a remote hill tribe in Bangladesh and India, widows who wish to remarry must choose a man from the same clan as their dead husband.The only single males, however, are often much younger."I was too small to remember the wedding—I had no idea it had taken place," Orola says.
The tribe offered Noten, then 17, as Mittamoni's new husband, on the condition that he marry Orola, too.
I wanted a husband of my own." The situation was doubly unjust in Orola's eyes because ethnic Mandi women usually choose their own partners.
