yeap it is true for arabs. We are bought up to think that the Bride has to be beautiful and pretty and all the rest of it, and the groom can be your average joe looking, but has to have money and a good job and a house. That is what we are spoon fed. Even my mother.
She told me not long ago, she saw a couple the wife was not attractive and the husband was very attractive and said straight out its nto going ot work. When i asked why she told me its meant to be the other way round. The women should be attractive. I was shocked ot hear it, even though i heard it all my life
But most men think that way also, they need to have a trophey wife. Doesnt matter if she practices, prays, as long as she is pretty, can have children and can cook that makes a good wife for them.
The amount of people i see in morocco
the husband prays and fasts and read quran etc etc. But the wife doesnt do anything. She doesnt know how to pray, doesnt know the quran. How can a man do that to his wife??? :'( :'(
