Stockholm syndrome:The Mystery of Loving an Abuser - Part 1
THE TRADITION OF WIFE KIDNAPPING
What if I told you that kidnapping women and forcing them to become your bride was a common practice around the world? No, this is not a scene from Borat, it's real life. Bride Kidnapping is common in Central and Southeast Asia, Africa, and among cultures like the Romani in Europe. Basically, the man abducts the woman he wishes to have as his bride. This can be a more symbolic "abduction," where it's more of an act than a real kidnapping. On the other hand, many wife kidnappings are violent and totally non consensual. Interestingly, the tradition of a honeymoon is said to be a relic of bride kidnapping.
