Georgia – not the Paula Deen one, the other one – has a “test the bride for virginity” service, the BBC tells us.
Maintenance of virginity before marriage is deeply entrenched in the Orthodox
Christian country, although not everyone’s happy with the idea of it being
documented. One young interviewee branded it “disgusting”. She told the TV
reporter: “I would say no if I were asked to do this… if I am to spend my
whole life with him, he should trust me.” Web users also mocked the inspection
service, circulating a digitally-altered image of an ID card with an added
“virginity status” parameter.
Yes I don’t see that being a very pleasant conversation with the future mother-in-law.
