      The youngest of the girls (she was 18 when she first arrived in early 2009) was most concerned that her now-husband was unattractive for her preferences. She didn't seem to truly understand what was done to her. She is, however, unhappy and powerless. Apparently it's a common practice in Korca, and her mother was given away to her father much in the same way.

      I asked her why she hasn't gone back to Korca if she isn't happy. She told me her father would kill her and I didn't get the impression she meant it figuratively!

      I even got to see pictures of her village and home, and it was primitive in comparison to Bukovo.

      I was only briefly introduced to the other two (who were in their late 20s, if I remember correctly).

      You know, I often protested: my neighbors would then say, "what does she expect? She just arrived and has barely learned the language! A marriage needs to be built".
