Old tribal customs die hard.

The thing that really pissed me off is that is was just RUDE in our standard of culture. This was after we married.

They all had cell phones and could have called. But what I am trying to say is this must be normal in their culture. They were IN OUR BEDROOM WINDOW. This and other things. Mr. Once Was is not a man, was afraid it seemed of his family and their wishes were always honored above mine.

They have that honor system going on over there where the woman can be killed if she dishonors the family. I was respectful while there, however after arriving back to the states it was life as normal.

But normal for him was to control. I hope I shamed them. Really. It is unacceptable in our culture not to HONOR privacy in the married bedroom. They have a double standard over there where YOU HAVE TO RESPECT THEIR RULES but to heck with yours.

You and the girls have a good holiday.
