"Once you start carrying your own suitcase, paying your own bills, running your own show, you've done something to yourself that makes you one of those women men like to call 'a pal' and 'a good sport,' the kind of woman they tell their troubles to. But you've cut yourself off from the orchids and the diamond bracelets, except those you buy yourself."

- Sophie Tucker

That's it. No suitcase carrying for me. Bring on the orchids and diamonds people. I demand it!

Amusing, but is practical terms absurd and not applicable to your situation. The arranged marriage thing obviously annoys you and doesn't get you anywhere, so the harder option of independent living and a more westernized approach is the one that makes sense. If you're working, shouldn't that double the orchids and diamond bracelets?

Come on man. All thinking man are crazy about women, who can survive on their own.
There aren't a lot of thinking men around. You gotta give me that thought.
