I went to my friend’s wedding today. Latifa, at 21-years-old, is a bride who is going to her future husband’s house tonight. There was a party during the day at her house. There will be a party tonight at his house.

When she left her family’s house, she was, literally, a bride dressed in all white. Well, minus the red bandana that draped over her face, covering her from everyone and everything until she arrived at the groom’s house. Her wedding attire underscored the importance of chastity until marriage so much more.

Despite the sadness of watching my friend get married off into another house, Latifa was a beautiful bride. I’m so happy and honored that she requested my presence at her wedding.
