Where the Good Old Days of Bashing A Pretty Woman Over the Head and Dragging Her Away Still Count . . .
More than half of Kyrgyzstan's married women were snatched from the street by their husbands in a centuries-old custom.
"Such abductions are common here. More than half of Kyrgyzstan's married women were snatched from the street by their husbands in a custom known as 'ala kachuu,' which translates roughly as 'grab and run.' In its most benign form, it is a kind of elopement, in which a man whisks away a willing girlfriend. But often it is something more violent."
