like a real charmer.
Pray tell, do you rely on their word/your guesstimation or do you weigh them
(using the plural "them" because I assume from your narrow specifications that you can afford to be picky) before proposing?
If it is a weigh in, I highly recommend you let the girl know a day prior that she should avoid all sodium intake lest you mistake water weight for an actual figure.
I think you had it right the first time about being insecure.
I take the weighing machine, put it down, calibrate it to nearest tenth of gram. Ask the wali (got to keep it halal you know) to ask the lady to get on machine without shoes, purse. Take the weight and minus 3 lbs for the weight of clothes. Take it 3 times and average it out. Anything over 120lbs and i take my machine and leave. This marriage aint happening.
FYI, 120lbs is not anorexic (5'5 - 5'7"). I think its perfect weight before marriage because after that its downhill
