    Dear all,

    I've recently read an article about the growing kind of abuse: Marrying terminally ill patients for money. I could attach the article here once I find it online.
    But you too can search on-line about these type of weddings - I am sure you would find a lot, as there are plenty.

    According to the article I mentioned above:
    “Caregivers are forcing the wealthy, terminally ill patients with limited mental capacity into late-life marriage for the purpose of taking advantage of them financially.”

    The article had a lot more other instances where how dying patients had to give in to this type of abuse, because of their limited physical and mental capacity and dependency mode.

    There are many forms of financial scams such as credit card fraud, insurance scams etc.
    According to Julie Schoen, deputy director of the NCEA, these scams are sometimes referred to as “Sweetheart Scams.

    When I watched certain FB videos, I doubted the same because the look, position and expression of the patients, as well as the whole event made me think whether these weddings are indeed for the betterment of these patients or not.

    This is pathetic according to me. I searched google to know what is the meaning for pathetic in case if my grammar is that bad.
    Google say " pathetic means " especially through vulnerability or sadness". And I guess, my wording for such weddings is NOT wrong.

    I am someone, who won't give up my ideologies for peer or social pressure. I've done my research well before I posted here. So, you must try hard with valid reasons to convince me wrong, rather than trying these emotional attacks.
    Digging my old post certainly won't help - I am sorry!

    In which grammar @SinghManisha the use of the word "Pathetic" becomes indecent?

    I have repeatedly quoted in many places that the weddings or whatever the events that take place with the fullest consent of the dying patients are NOT wrong, rather they are heavenly.
    The intention of this thread is not about such heavenly events.

    However, when such an event is organized with an hidden agenda, and the dying patients are trapped due to their vulnerability, then it is pathetic. I repeat no matter what, it is pathetic.
    I can't support such sweet heart scams, though many of you seem to be in agreement with it.

    Mods, please close this thread!

    That is lot of assumption and judgement flying around . Please be kind and compassionate. There are always bad apples . You cannot take one case and generalize it . Your usage of certain vocabulary repeatedly in this thread is shocking . This is is very sensitive issues . If you are opening a thread please keep a open mindset to challenge your opinion . If you want to stick to what you want to believe why open a thread .

    In the other post, I made a post about acceptance of black magic believers...and kind of made it.
    Here, I am advocating the same and cant win . Is it about the act or the ego.. I am lost :thinking:

    Oh.. Asking the mods to close the thread is a problem?
    Specially as a thread starter, when the thread did not meet its intended purpose?

    I think its your ego or whatever that prevents you from seeing the context beyond the subject heading. Kindly get that sorted out before coming here.

    Nevertheless, I rest my case here & request the mods as the thread starter to close it.

    You are not resting the case rather running away from the case you made .

    Dear OP,

    Congratulations!! By using your unique power, you are able to conclude that it's a scam by seeing the video alone.

    You have decided already and you are framing your arguments based on that.

    You are entitled to have an opinion, but arguing that only you are correct, isn't right..In this world, there are both good and bad people.You chose to see only the bad.

    You can argue by saying that using the word 'pathetic' isn't bad..But, you aren't thinking even for a second that, may be, it is not a scam and that sick person really wants to fulfill his/her last wish.In that case, the usage of this word is really wrong.

    Being Sensitive in a public forum is most important than anything.

    SGBV, Marrying to fulfill someone’s last wish is very different from marrying a patient for their money. You started out with the former and switched to latter when you could not take the heat.

    Asking mods to close this thread because we do not agree with you = curbing our freedom of expression .
