Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Hahah why do you talk to yourself?

A lot of these women are pumped with the fear (re: blackmailed) that they'll go to hell if they disobey their man. Apparently pleasing your husband is your ticket to paradise.

And you know, even the Bible has some similar teachings, but the difference is the self-sacrifice is mutual. Go to a religious forum and you'll get countless women writing in about how their husbands have stopped talking to them for a week... or how they've called them this or that name. And they're usually told something along the lines of: "Listen to your husband, try not to provoke him. Massage his feet or spice things up in the bedroom and he'll come around. Deal with all his BS and you'll eventually be rewarded."

It's truly nauseous, I had to stop reading lol.
