I am single because of my addiction to school. Even before I took my self-imposed sabbatical from all things related to me getting married, i was on an unofficial one. I mean, my friends are all married and I would hang out with them and their husbands, but I was more interested in my books and taking that next class. I would joke about how I was married to my education.
It's funny how 5 years ago, I was obsessed with getting married. I was studying abroad and everyone was talking about getting married, so much so that our dorm was like, a house of eligibles. (We were students of knowledge, so who wouldn't wanna marry their son off to us, we were "perfect") Women would come to the dorm and request the nationality of wife they wanted for their son/nephew/brother. Usually, it was Russian, British or American. When they saw us, they would immediately tell us to go back, we weren't "American" or "British" enough for the. Then, the Russian girls were too "fat" for them. It was like, eww.
Dag, I didn't mean to rant like that. InshaAllah, when i get over my addiction, I will attempt to get married.
