“You have sisters, you have two sons, do you even realize the impact of the label divorcee in this society? Your mom could die of grief and your father’s pride will be irreversibly damaged!! And for what? For some mistakes that can be forgiven? Let me tell you that, you will never find a husband that helps around the house and kneels before you begging for forgiveness? You see, there are four kinds of women: the young girl of 16-25 year old from a good wealthy family (whom I know you once were before getting married), who all guys want to marry, the divorcee from a good family who has no children from her previous marriage, the spinster who would compromise her social status to get married and get rid of the label, and the divorcee who has kids, who no one want to have to do anything with her, you see, she is expected to be irresponsible because she was too stubborn to see what’s in her best interest or in her children’s best interest, let alone failing in her marriage”
That was quoted from a man my respectful husband refers to as sheikh/x-judge/attorney/friend of my his late father’s who visited in an attempt to ‘fix things in a religious way’… of course he went on an on saying more crap that I would not know how to translate without losing the essence of his wisdom.
Did anyone else notice that the man didn’t even quote any thing from religion (I am thankful that he did not disgrace religion though)? Did anyone else sense the tone that is meant to intimidate me from considering the taboo aka divorce?
Excuse my French, WHO THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE IS TO TALK TO ME THAT WAY??? My own father (who would love to start an anti-divorce association) did not choose that cheap way of argument!
