Single and Proud – My Comment

My friend posted on my Facebook this weekend the article titled “Single and Proud” by Rasha Dwedar on the marital status Muslim ladies are choosing, specifically in Egypt. My friend ask for my thoughts and here’s what I had to say…

Skimmed through the article which is exactly what I saw in Egypt… girls dying to get married only to feel stuck. Some get out, some stay put because they don’t know what else to do. I saw a girl put up with a really stupid, idiotic fiance because people envied how cute he/they were. Now she’s married, with a kid, and dare not continue dreaming of going for her masters or her high school diploma hubby will dump her. Those same girls then always ask me why I don’t want to get married and my simple response, “what for?” I know what I want in my life, I’m extremely independent and don’t need someone to “order me around or take care of me”. Until someone out there can share my vision in life, has great ambitions to go further in life and can give two shits what other people might think, then I’ll consider getting married. Until then, single and proud!

Do read the article, “Single and Proud” by Rasha Dwedar, and share your thoughts below.

EGYPT IS FREE!! – !!مصر حرة

As of a couple hours ago, after 18 days of mostly peaceful protests and determination, Mubarak finally stepped down. He did not have the common courtesy to face the people and had his “torture-in-cheif” VP Omar Sulieman give the 30 second resignation speech. Egyptians around the world wept tears of joy, tears of accomplishment, tears of freedom. This is the first step towards a true glorious democratic nation.

I tweeted and facebooked this earlier and I’ll reiterate it again here: “I’ve always been proud to be Egyptian but since #Jan25, I’ve been blessed & honored to be Egyptian!!”

Congratulations Egypt & many blessed returns as you finally become the nation you were suppose to be more then 30 years ago!
