Nancy Shaba WS 3010-Fish 1 Nov. 2011 Violence against Women Discussion Question #2- I do know a woman who fits this model. My friend has two kids and has been married for ten years. Her husband is abusive but she does not file for a divorce or complain about it because she feels like people will talk bad about her and no one will ever marry her because she would be a divorced woman with kids. She doesn’t want to be the single woman with two kids and a non-virgin because she thinks that most Middle Eastern men will not marry a woman who is divorced and not a virgin. My answer is influenced by my culture because I am Middle Eastern and divorce is always frowned upon, my friend is also from the Middle East. I think it might be different if I was older because a lot of people from the Middle East are becoming more Americanized and I think someday in the future, divorce will not be considered a bad thing in the Middle Eastern community.
