Marriage and Diversity...

You know how it is. You meet the most beautiful girl you’ve ever seen. You become friends, and then close friends, you date, and at the end, you’re inseparable. You ask her to marry you and she agrees. You tell your parents to call her parents. And then it hits you like a six-wheeler heading to Hawaii: She’s Arab, you’re Ba7raani*; she’s 3ejmiya**, you’re Hoolee***… Her parents do not want her to marry you because you’re different.

WHAT THE FUCK?! What is with this jahiliya**** mentality? Why the fuck does this country still have parents that use ethnic and religious backgrounds as valid reasons not to accept a person for their child’s spouse? It’s the 21st century man! I mean I thank God there are parents here that look at the person as opposed to that person’s religion. There’s still hope for some of us! But why, oh why, do the ignorant fucks still exist? What will happen if a Ba7raani married a hooliya? A thermo-nuclear reaction?! A little diversity is good you dumbasses! You don’t wanna stay in the same gene pool! You’re kids’ kids will end up disabled or stupid! Look at the rednecks! You don’t wanna start a tobacco-chewing redneck community here in Bahrain now, do you?

So many hearts get broken this way, including parents’ hearts. One of the worst things to do in the world is to do something without your parent’s blessings. And there are people that do it; they feel they have no other choice when they find “the one”. It’s sad when you’re celebrating your wedding without your mother because she’s against you marrying someone of a different Islamic sect.

Parents: stop and think about why you’re opposed to that person. Look at that person without thinking about their ethnic/religious background. If you find something you don’t like in their personality, fine that’s fair enough. At least that’s better than brushing someone off without giving them a chance simply because your parents did the same. If you're rejecting someone based on your "failed" experience, you should know better not to let the same happen to your kids. Look at a person's qualities rather than religious sect or background. Our great prophet Mohammad (PBUH) once said "إذا جاءكم ممن ترضون دينه و خلقه فزوجوه، إلا تفعلوا تكن فتنة في الأرض و فساد عريض".***** There must be a reason why your child loves that person so much! They’re not just gonna pick anyone off the streets like that! But if you keep doing this, they eventually will!

Give us all a chance. Grow up!

-- LiB Teammate's comments: These are mentalities that create a bigger hole amongst people as they don't embrace diversity. Apart from genetic and religious impact of this backwardness, this creates another problem. Let's say that this girl doesn't get married and she's so heartbroken, she will go out with this person behind their parents' backs. Or even worse, they might end up being whores throwing themselves at anyone's arms which in turn will raise the rate of prostitution in this country which is already high!

*Ba7raani: Pronounced Bahraani. which is a proper pronunciation of the word "Bahraini" in written Arabic. Of the Shia religious sect.

**3ejmiya or 3ajam: Pronounced Ajam. People of Persian origins. In proper Arabic, Ajams is used to describe any non-arabs be them Persians, Hindi, European, American etc. Also of the Shia sect of Islam.

***Hoolee: Pronounced "holy". People who moved out from "Arabia" during the Islamic middle ages and settled in the southern parts of modern day Iran, some villages there still speak pure Arabic while some developed their own dialect of Persian language with Arabic terminologies. These are from the Sunni sect of Islam.

****Jahiliya: The period before Islam.

*****Basically what this Hadeeth or saying by our great prophet Mohammad PBUH means: "If someone comes and asks you for your daughter's hand who is a devout practitioner of religion and has great manners then don't hesitate to approve, if you don't then it's a big loss and disastrous for the society"

actually this is true, in fact i know this girl that was asked to get married by someone (who is actually from the same religuos sector!!) but tha fact that he is from an "unknown" family, although the guy is well paid and has good manners, but the girls family refused, so now they still date behind everyones back, and maybe even Fuck!! its sad how ignorant fucked up parents create fucking whores and throw them in the street... fucking dark ages mentality...

why do i have a feeling that its you who fucked the drewall?

i guess it takes one to know one...

the moral of the article had nuthin to do with becoming whores, maybe you read the article intitled "sluts rights.." and got the word "whore" and "fucking" stuck in your brain cause its the one thing you constantly do...

true, not only parents make the whore, but they sure have a strong influance on the subject...

and by the way, i dont think you get these kind of situations in UAE, cause if you wanted to marry a forigner, your dad will send his camels to ride you to death...

and lemmy add another thing.. emarati chicks are nothing but gold diggers.. so obviosly, not many bahrainies can get any of that pussy, since the 3abaya you wear cost as much as the average salary..

damn rich slut...

Ok... I’m an ignorant fuck.. I know nothing...I totally agree…

Looking at your replys, I came across something that I would like to share with my fellow ignorant readers…

in your first comment, you mentioned that "its not parents that makes the whores"... and in your last comment, you said "I would never even think of marrying a foreigner or someone my parents did not approve of cus its my parents who brought me into this world and ill respect them.."

Hmmm, lets try to analyze this to the simple minded or what you call "ignorant" readers..

she’s simply saying that she respects her parents, those words were actually generated from her subconscious mind, in other words she wrote them fast and without thinking, meaning that deep inside she respects her parents, which obviously involves Fear... with me obeying my parents and fearing them, I simply avoid doing the things that are considered wrong, like for example, fucking people in the street... by that, eliminating the thought of becoming a so called "whore"... and with that we reach to our conclusion...

Parents inject fear into kids + teaching kids whats right from wrong + kids respecting parents = kids not becoming whores = Parents are responsible for all the whores out there...

Which is the point I was trying to prove in the first place…

Thank you for your generous contribution in proving my theory...

you goddamn Rich Hypocrite Hippie...
