Soon I will marry a muslim. He is the most confident and self assured man I have ever met. I have studied long and hard about what it will mean to become a muslim wife.
I trust this man with my life. I know he would never harm me. That he would cherish and protect me. This is a personal choice to accept his way of life. If you hurt your best friends feelings because you are having a bad day that is just selfish. A simple apology will calm everything. Women are funny creatures though, and pride can consume (me) up to the throat. To be taken in hand and reminded to be kind is not a bad thing. It relieves so much guilt. This is not isolated to the muslim belief , and if you believe it is then you need to do some research.
Personally, I'd rather take a spanking than the silent treament, or worse an explosive temper because he took all he could take and then just went off. Men usually don't do much bitching or nagging like women do, but that would even suck, to go on and on about something. Just spank me,forgive me and put it behind me.
Yes my future groom will most assuredly spank my smart ass american mouth every now and then. At least I will know he is paying attention and cares about my well being.
