in response to reader comment: Clarification on Marriage

Submitted by Jordana Ghannam-Ahmed, Jun 14, 2018 at 19:45

Yes, Luigi, agree. Actually when I said my marriage shouldn't be used as the poster child for mena marriages, I meant it more like as in, just becausw my marriage is a certain way, I am in no way vouching for all relationships to Mena or Egyptian men in general. It's really not something that can be comparable-each relationship has to be judged on jts own merits and shortcomings etc. And just because my marriage happens to be a good one, I want to be clear that I am in no way claiming that to be the norm, because sadly, in all reality, it's not. So just because you may see or hear of a successful relationship with a western woman and a Mena man, don't rely on someone else's story or statistics to justify one's own relationship, if that makes sense. (Idk if that isore clear or no, lol but I am having writers block trying to explain the point I'm trying to get across ;)
