For today’s challenge- Love / Hate, Athos and Milady, before things went sour and they started, you know, trying to kill each other.
I draw a lot more porn than this blog would lead you to believe.  Also I have a problem drawing men too burly.  Milady should not be this buff but his pose was so much less expressive when I tried to reign in the biceps.  Oh well.
Sorry I haven’t been keeping up super well, guys.  This is exactly why I wanted to do a group thing- I would have given up ages ago without you!!!

Mom’s Wisdom Time of the Day

So…today I was out with my mom and we were arguing about something silly, and then, suddenly, she told me that she had read a very interesting phrase the other day, "people doesn’t listen to comprehend but to reply" she quoted. Since this piece of wisdom was directed to me, I didn’t feel very happy about it. But I immediately realized that it was a thought worthy of sharing, and worthy of thinking about. Thanks mommy.

"Some people still prefer the arranged marriage, especially in the countryside where tradition is still strong. The thought is that your parents know you very well, and will make the decision based on experience and not emotion. The divorce rate with arranged marriages is lower, because both families are heavily involved and there are many people committed to making the match work. But the tradition is on the way out. It used to be that you didn’t even see your wife until your wedding day, and you fell in love after your wedding, as you learned to support and care for each other. But today there’s Whatsapp and Facebook, so keeping two people apart is almost impossible. ‘Love marriages’ are becoming much more popular than arranged marriages, and even arranged marriages involve much more interaction than they used to. Many families still choose to uphold the appearance of an arrangement. Their children will come to them and say: ‘I fell in love.’ And they’ll say: ‘OK, let us arrange it.’"
