Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Confused about intentions of Jordan man

Submitted by Chelsea, Aug 13, 2019 at 19:27

You married a man from Jordan? So did I a few years back. I woke up just in time to STOP the NIGHTMARE. Your gut is right. Yes he is a liar. He will always be a liar. Jordan men think they are God's gift to women.

They are masters of manipulation. If the mouth is moving...he is lying. But it is permitted in his country. Oh and he probably like the ones I know would have intimate relations with that king over there....they love him so much.

Hate to break it to you but it would not matter if you are 21 years old and younger than him. You will always sit second to his family. You do know that it is permissible for the men to marry up to 4 wives. Bluntly speaking....if you are from America...then you will always be a "dirty" American woman. Oh they will not tell you to your face, but they are sure talking it behind your back, even if you are of high moral character.

What is it that is so great about a younger spouse from overseas?? I would think that women would not want another child to raise....especially a narcissistic Jordanian man.

Mac.....the years are creeping up on you and don't you think that it would be wise to start thinking about YOUR future and YOUR life? I am no spring chicken myself and yes I look younger than my age too, but my value is not so shallow that I would now at my age put up with such nonsense from a man that probably sees you as a cash cow and a mother figure.

With all this being said...please understand that this is not judging you, however you came here for help and that is what we give. As my mother once told me "you made your bed, now you have to lye in it" So what did I do? I made a better bed for myself. Comfy and secure with non of this BS drama from these cry baby men.

As you can see...these stories on here are not sweet. I cannot tell you how many times I have read...I am older but I look really young for my age. But the truth is you are much much older than him.

I do wish you well. I really do not see how this can be resolved easily, however, when there is a will....there is a way. I will tell you that I do not regret kicking mine to the curb. And I am much older now. I can not see myself putting up with any of their crap at my age. Concerning age....I had a nurse tell me that as we get older....we start to feel and see the changes about every 2 years. Yep....it was right. But mainly I have a low low tolerance for BS now that I am older.

But if I was in your shoes....instead of putting ANY ENERGY into this jerk....I would focus my energy on getting out of this mess.

I hope this clarifies some of the confusion you have. Again welcome to the forum.
