Tonight, I will try to interact with some commentators.
In Mauritania, we do not have what socalled Honer crimes. Thanks to our maternal barbarian society. Just keep reading to see why i used that title.
-Kuldeep, you are right, there are differences between sari and mullaffah. But, I think what you've described as disclosure of beauty when women wear sari, was an old belief that women need to expose their bellies to the sun "God" in order to have children.
You also asked whethe the divorce needs to be registered .It doesn't need any registration. Here, divorce is merely a word stated by the husband not the wife.
For example, if a man sworn by divorce to assure someone that something had happened, and he lately found out that the action had never happened, that would counted a divorce.
The wife doesn't have the right to divorce her husband. However, she has other ways to get rid of him, if she wants. She can buy herself from him or ask him to leave her and then he would be forced morally to appease and divorce her.
But, in all cases the decision or rather the word has to come from the man.
4- Taru from Finland, You have come clean by admitting that people who are giving their money away to animals while other people dying are simply idiots.
That is a harsh word,Taru, but let us hope that kind of language would prople them to think.
What do you mean when you described my opinion as a man's view.
What is wrong with males' opinion? I am afraid this is typically a false generalization.
In my view, man and woman may could play different roles but they are absolutely equal.
I am also not sure that your comparison between the Sahara and the Scandinavian countries was that accurate. There is no scarcity there. You are living in one of the most developed spot on the planet.
Unlike the desert, the frizzing weather forces people and governments there to provide every house with power just to save people's lives. Which plays, in my opinion, a good role in your wellbeing? Whilst the hot whether poses no threat to the Saharan lives.
Sunshine, although your comment was lovely and very short, I have tow remarks about your pen- name.
First, since you are from Saudi Arabia sunshine wouldn't be the best name, for the literally scorching weather ther.You need to move to the north to make this name more attracting.
I think, this is why the moon was much preferred in Arabic poetry when it comes to showing affection to gorgeous women.
Second, I hope you would be so nice and allow me to explain to the readers why you need to hedge your name.
Living in Saudi Arabia for five years,I have seen, the first hand, how they live and think.
In the conservative and paternal society there, women are extremely cautious about giving their real names. No man there can dare to mention a name of a given woman before her husband or her brother. That is totally shameful. If he does, it could cost him his life.
They still look suspiciously to any relationship between a man and a woman.
In fact, they can not imagine a clear relationship between them.
They think that women are not eligible even to drive cars let alone to be on the lead of a country. And in the absence of her independence and an affective law to protect her, the "guardian" man takes over.
A woman there is man's asset or resort for pleasure rather than an independent person.
She needs the man to travel with her, to cover her from other men's eyes, to sign the marriage contract on her behalf, to chose for her or rather to sell her to the person with whom she would spend her life with. to issue a verdict(Fatwa) for her when she gets confused about her own monthly period and more worse, to beat her when she disobey him.
Historically, they used to burry newborn girls to avoid the dishonor she could bring. That was a short cut.
Nowadays, they just burry her socially and legaly. They kill her only if she threats the " honor" of the family. Jordan in that region is the worst when it comes to "honor" crimes, but the statistics accuracy, to some extent, depends on the government's policy. So, it is hard to get the exact numbers in those societies.
Marianna,your comment is encouraging as always, thanks.
Hoyshil, Can I tell you something, Hoyshil? If I were you, I would be satisfied with my English. I have been following your comments on this page for more than a year and I have to admit that every time I read one, I come across useful expressions including today's comment. So, you too , keep the good work.thanks for your comment.
Jason, thank you for your wavering about the modern life and I hope you would visit the Sahara someday.
Asma, I wouldn't call your country a desert.
Dubai is now a well-developed state.Tanks to Med bin Rashed.
I meant by free life ,to live without regulations. Thank you for commenting.
Rajesh, thank you for the info about northern India, but I have a suggestion about the coin that believed to give domination to one of the couple. Wouldn't be fair enough if the new couple consider themselves two flips of the very coin.
Qader Husin said in his short comment that he wants to study English.
I want to assure you, Qader that this is the right place for you.
