Why are we expected to marry other Assyrians?

And you can't prove that the OP is a fake.

Goes either way.

not really why should I prove the OP is fake when the OP should be proving they're not.

In a trial, do you try to prove the murderer is innocent when he or she pleads not guilty?

Unfair comparison. If the OP is fake then so is everybody in here. We're all anonymous here, besides two people.

You can see how passionate and persistent she was, talking about her life experience and such. I know troll threads and the likes. They come here with a brief, controversial statement and remain absent throughout the thread (to stir up conflict with the rest of us). She was relatively active. She answered some of your stuff. What more do want?

Not to mention, it's not like the subject matter was outlandish or anything. Assyrians are known to be homogeneous. We don't intermarry. Our parents want us to be with our kind. That's pretty much her background story, and it makes sense. Now if she came here with a bizarre "story" (i.e. "I'm an Assyrian adopted by Indians and living in India, help me get out"), then yes, I would probably think that she's a fake person.

Why do you say+think that Anid?

I won't lie, it's possible considering this girl doesn't know Assyrian yet she can understand it?

remember that she says "I don't speak the language. I simply forgot. I can understand it but I can't speak it."

how do you forget to speak a language that you can understand?

Secondly, WHAT IF this is a guy who wants to marry a non-Assyrian girl and he's basically reversing the entire situation to get a different answer or understanding?

Yeah that AND because of ''her'' username 'PierceThePatriarchy' it's too obvious lmao. It's probably someone that hates Assyrians. but if OP is genuine then this is a matter of communication with her parents. Her parents being ''being controlling and unreasonable'' is out of our hands. Plus it'd be like me going to a Christian forum complaining that my parents don't like me dating a Muslim. Especially since our population is like 2-3 million? and someone from our community has the nerve to ask WHY we're expected to be with our own kind??
 
You can find an Assyrian who will be good to you and love you. And you clearly care a lot about what other Assyrians think otherwise you wouldn't have made this thread. You shouldn't have asked the opinions of strangers about this if you weren't gonna be able to handle a difference of opinion. Most of us think it's wrong and won't be making the same mistake as you, that's all.

We have a unique, distant DNA type compared to other mixed up middle eastern people because our people have been sticking to our own for thousands of years. I don't think we should throw that away. The reason I'm so against it is because we have such a small worldwide population, technically even smaller due to all the seperate fractions we have as a race.

@ mrzurnaci, you're proud of our history. You really don't mind a future where Assyrians don't look like our ancestors as seen on ancient paintings etc.(I'm not saying it would ever get that far but still) and rather a mixture of people in the disaspora. Lets be honest here, even if these Assyrians try hard to teach their children the language and culture we wouldn't survive long at all.
Find an Assyrian who will be good to you, where? 👀

Here on Assyrian Voice! :p

All kidding aside, and I know most people have migrated to other social networks last 10 years, but so many couples met here and got married, and are still happily married and have kids too.

The thing about meeting people on websites like this is that you get to see them and experience their personality for long, before you decide to get more serious with them etc. It is like a way to filter out the bad apples before committing to one.

Best of luck! :)
