Who agrees with this?

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men

Submitted by Sheila (United States), May 4, 2017 at 11:59

Maybe many of us was very vulnerable during the time we were contacted by a MENA man. I know I was. Do you agree if we had not been in this state of mind because of something very hurtful we had experienced recently and would not have made us blind that these men didn't love us ? I think this has a lot to do with it.

When my ex said what he did to me about my niece for the 2nd time , I thought about it. She's 19 years old but she would never associate with someone who acts if they don't have a soul and thinks it's fine. She's not vulnerable and has not been been terribly hurt. I pray she never is. Besides my brother would take care of the guy who breaks her heart because she's still his baby girl.

I feel foolish like some of you do. I don't care who reads this. I won't ever be misleaded again by anyone. Everything that has happen within the last 5 years and some of it doesn't have to do with my ex or my Mom's death. I can't talk talk about it on here because it was a great loss. I realize how strong I am. How strong all the pain has made me. I've survived! I'm still alive. Some women kill themselves. Not me because God is the only man I need in my life because he gives me what no one else in this world can give me.

I know we think of God as a spirit but he's everything to me. We all sin everyday and we must get forgivenesses. I apologize to any who are not religious for going deep into my beliefs. I like to try to respect others feelings and religions. I hope many of you will think about what I said and it gives you strength because this came from my heart!! <3

I am interested to hear if a time of vulnerability applies also to other readers.
