And thank you for reading! Jessie Hanson and Tony Lemma and Sam Marziali and Flora Granger were the bridal couples. The women are serving short sentences, and, as their time is still unexpired, will have to spend the first part of their honeymoon in jail. The husbands are not prisoners. Weve all heard plenty of stories about women who marry male prisoners wardens seduced by sweet-talking inmates, vulnerable housewives with multiple children who fall for convicted murderers they meet on special dating sites. Heck, even Charles Manson had a beautiful young bride-to-be (though reports said she was caught two-timing him with one of his disciples at a rock and gem show and had plans to display his corpse for profit after his death, so who knows where thats at). You dont have to have a doctorate in psychology to understand the narratives that might persuade a woman to marry a felon a history of abuse, a fear of abandonment or, simply, an internalized notion that getting married after 40 is about as likely as meeting a leprechaun at the Polo Lounge and having him buy you a shrimp cocktail. There are women desperately trying to hold their families together. Then theres love, some ersatz kind of romance. But love is complex, love involves forgiveness, and so many women have been trained to forgive, again and again, until they dont know what theyre forgiving anymore. Photo Women have also been trained to be good.

REUTERS/Fayaz Aziz 7/7 By Jibran Ahmad | PESHAWAR, Pakistan PESHAWAR, Pakistan Suicide bombers attacked a court complex in Pakistan on Tuesday, killing five people and wounding 20, police officials said, the latest incident in a new surge of Islamist violence. All three of the attackers were carrying hand grenades and AK-47 assault rifles, Ijaz Khan, police chief in the northwestern district of Charsadda, told Reuters. One attacker blew himself up outside the court, while two were killed by policemen before they could enter the building. "The terrorists had come and wanted to kill as many people as they could inside the judicial complex," Khan said. "Five people were killed in the attack." Besides lawyers and judges, hundreds of litigants visit the building every day. A spokesman for Jamaat-ur-Ahrar, a faction of the Pakistani Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement emailed to media. Last week, the militant faction released a video announcing a new campaign of attacks against the government, including the judiciary, police and the army. A series of bombings last week, in which more than 100 people were killed, has shattered a nascent sense that the worst of the country's militant violence might be in the past. The deadliest of last week's attacks was on a famous Sufi Muslim shrine in the ชุดเพื่อนเจ้าสาว facebook southern province of Sindh and was claimed by the Middle-Eastern militant group Islamic State. Islamic State has a small but increasingly prominent presence in Pakistan. Fighters loyal to it are known to be operating under different names in Pakistan to attack the government, army and members of religious minorities.
