Anyone here who has been or going thru arranged marriage prospects, at what point in the course of talking/ meeting do you bring up exclusivity? I am talking to this guy for 3 months given COVID we are not able to meet, but he also seems really into me, we talk everyday and go to sleep talking to each other, but recently I think he is talking to others too and my parents also want me to talk to more guys if I can’t finalize on him.

Anyone who used to be anti vaxx or vaccine hesitant that was persuaded to get the vaccine? I love my sister and worried about her not getting the vaccine because she believes it causes infertility. She lives in a highly unvaccinated population and has been frustrated with me for not doing indoor activities with her without us both masked because I am very worried about breakthroughs with the Delta variant.
