Well actually my mom was working in Northern India as a nurse and was home on vacation and had seen a few guys herself and said no to all of them. Also, my mom actually had the upper hand in the situation of her and my dad. Her family was rich, she had a good education, a good job, and her family was well respected in the area. My dad's parents both had passed away, growing up they were always extremely poor, he never went to college, and moved to Saudi Arabia right after high school to make money. My mom said she liked my dad because she thought he was good looking, had a good personality and could hold a conversation. My dad still always holds this over her head and says he was such a bad ass that he convinced some rich girl to marry a guy like him within 10 minutes. My mom responds "or the other guys were that bad that I settled for you".
