i don't get this one could we are friends with.
we met them separately, then they got together. he's from Oregon, and is nerdy but normal otherwise. she immigrated from the Ukraine when she was 3 and went to a good college. Her parents never bothered to assimilate. they were cool people separately, but over the course of 2-3 years, they've become super strange. I didn't get it.
and then i realized something. she married extremely young (for this day in age, the guy was mid-20's), and they married on the 1 year anniversary of having met, and then made it a mission to conceve on the 2 year anniversary of the wedding. now they're moving to Brooklyn, and her non-assimilated mother is moving in with them. then she confided that she wants 2 more kids immediately after this one is born, and if they can get more space, 3 more after that.
and what i realized is this is simply the american immigrant stereotype happening right in front of me.
