Chinese Traditions and Weddings
SG was tasked to write a short portion on Chinese Traditions for the church’s Marriage Preparation Class. After much pondering & reading the only book he can lay his hands on, he’s ready to draft some stuff.
But he thought he should give some formula (yes, good old engineer) to help the couples along. So, he came up with

D= Deposit (into the parents’ accounts)
A= Anticipate the incoming arrows
