    Mmm… like getting into a good school, or finding a job, or getting married.

    Schools here are still segregated to a degree and those with physical disabilities my have difficulty getting into a good high school (“you should go to the special school so we can protect you”), and therefore a good university may be out of reach.

    Jobs as well, often government-mandated requirements mean jobs for the disabled, but not ones with a future career path.

    In the love real, even if a partner is fine with a disabled person, their older parents may not be …

    That kinda stuff.  So, not really a worry for a visitor.  Also, I feel this happens in many countries.
