I saw a hot/nice girl married down syndrome guy, (not for the money) what's ur thought?
They say love is blind. But this story bring it to a whole new level. There is this really nice/hot girl I know for a while (a few years ago) and she married a guy with minor down syndrome. And, no, she didn't married him for the money, the guys' father is a plumber, his mother is a primary school teacher, so they ain't rich. She said the 2 of them, know each other since primary school and has been very good friend, she have dated a few guys, before. Her husband is a chef. (Don't underestimate them, because they are stupid, I once know a down syndrome guy, with a master degree in engineering)
I think that's great. People should be with who they love. Not enough love in this world as it is, I don't see the need to question or challenge it when it happens. Especially when it comes to something superficial like this.
In university I had a few English classes with a guy who had Down Syndrome. He was very smart and a wonderful person. Labels and conditions do not define people and often we have a very skewed understanding of them anyway.
I have family members with it and they tend to be much lovelier people than those who look down their nose at them for not having money or high paying jobs and not being as worthy somehow of a "hot chick" as someone who doesn't have Downs.
It's not a whole new level of love being blind; it's your friend having a large heart and ability to love someone for who they are. I'd say you picked that friend wisely and hopefully her influence will rub off on you and others in a positive way.
No, you are right, they aren't stupid and in fact, I'd wager the ones I know are much smarter than a lot of "normal" people I encounter. One particular family member of mine, a cousin close to my age, is probably the kindest person you would ever hope to meet.
He loves people unconditionally, despite the fact that many people have looked at him with disdain throughout his life. I've watched it, that subtle kind of skeeved out look people give the disabled out of the corner of their eyes that they assume the disabled person is too stupid to see.
Despite knowing others view him like this; he will still come up to you, shake your hand and talk your ear off.
I've met others with Down's also and I find knowing them and working to understand them to be very enriching. They have a lot to show us about how we treat one another.
PS Women are not trophies - so "hot" or not; women deserve to love and be loved for who they are and that is in no way dependent on superficial crap.
It's proves two things:
There is someone for everyone.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
She probably loves his personality and she enjoys his company. Women are different than men in that they can find a guy unattractive at first glance, but over time, if a strong friendship develops, their opinion can change, and the guy actually begins to look hotter than he was than they met. Men can grow on women.
