Last night I was talking to an Indian friend. I asked him if he had children (because I wasn’t sure, obviously) and he said no, I’m getting married next February.

Oh? I said. Where did you meet her?

We haven’t met yet. It’s an arranged marriage.

Oh, OK. Well I hear arranged marriages are usually more successful than here in the West where we just meet partners. But aren’t you worried that she might not be, well you know, attractive?

No. We value personality much more than appearance.

Well, that’s a really good attitude, I responded. I respect that.

Anyway, he replied. We do it with the lights off in India.

I didn’t stop laughing for an hour.
