Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
There is a persistent belief among Muslims that parents have the first and final say, even in the private life of an adult child, let alone minor children.
Add to that, the rejection of any concept on whether there is ever a time to distance self from one’s parents and we have a never-ending cycle of a society that favour impunity over fairness.
Well known is arranged or forced marriage in relation to the daughter.
Yet, men suffer just as much.
In several communities, a son is instructed by his parents on whom to marry, an instruction he is contented not to decline.
The son’s permission is sought, all right, but only as a formality, for he must not disagree with his parents.
His bride must be a young girl, not older than 18 years, of the same ethnicity and chosen or approved by his parents.
Therefore, one finds a recurring factor in the conduct of the male population:
He marries from his ethnicity to appease his parents and embarks on a lifelong quest to satisfy his sexual urge by having multiple sleeping partners, of note women of the ethnicity famous for sexually appealing females.
Worse, he has and desires an affair with every lady who will have him.
