Love triangle

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: They rarely change

Submitted by Lina (United Kingdom), Aug 7, 2019 at 21:12

I might add that this romance lothario had an Egyptian wife and family back home, and it's a scenario that's always perplexed me... these men will go back to their villages for a few months, give their wives their quarterly allowance and then go off with their European wives/girlfriends/babymommas.

I wonder to myself... do the (Muslim) women know what their husbands are up to...? Do they not care or do they just accept it? Do they see the men as simply ATMs...? So many questions run through my head, and I find myself wondering who is really in control...

Is it the men, who come and go as they please and have their own slave patiently waiting for them.... or is it the women, who carry their high dowries and have men breaking their backs to raise funds...? It's all very dysfunctional either way.

Submitting....
