being on the run from your husband and his family doesnt really sound like a viable way out of iran. I'd rather just be considered a traitor and leave.

men threatening to commit suicide when women leave them is a lot more common than it should be. these guys need to grow a pair

Arranged marriage is such a weird thing to me it's difficult to comprehend. I do believe that I read an article that showed a study about how much fewer arranged marriages end in divorce and that sounds great on the surface, but do the women really have that option?

Laleh is really lucky that Sweden was so accommodating to her

looks like the walls are blood spattered tin foil. The asthetics of this room are a bug out and slightly heavy metal.

Anitha is a remarkable person. It is tough to conceptualize forced marriage. I for one would not want to be in that position.

One of the worst elements of all this is the isolation one feels when they run. She cannot return to a place that once made her very happy. So many people who defy traditions wind up having to sacrifice all the cultural identities they cherish.

And another one...

Life is tough... Kill Yo Self!

Fucking finally. A decent ending to one of the horrible, fucked up stories. Hairy dudes are total dicks sometimes.

Just to let you all know, just because fewer arranged marriages end in divorce does not mean that they are healthy or that they are better than the West's custom of marriage.

Case in point, many men in India for instance, find it completely acceptable to cheat or to have a mistress on the side, all the while everyone just looks away. If the woman has an affair, all hell breaks loose. Not to mention it's completely socially acceptable to batter their wives.

Middle Eastern cultures are no better, but instead of affairs they're allowed to have multiple wives. I'm sure the women in those relationships feel cherished.

And as for the women this article highlights? They're just as badly stuck in the same mindset as the men they talked about, just to a lesser degree. There is so much emphasis on the family unit and group thinking, even the most bohemian Iranian girl would find it difficult to ostracize herself from a family that would have her ruin her life. In example, Anitha; she wants to be around what she's grown with, even though she had a much more difficult path laid ahead of her than if she were to pursue art in another country.

A real, free-thinking woman would have just as easily walked away from a situation like that and would give the authorities hell if she was being pursued. It's doubtful Anitha took out a restraining order and alerted the authorities where she lived so as not to be seen as a traitor to her husband in the eyes of her family. Funny how she didn't mention at all, aside from running away, what steps she took to stop her husband's pursuit of her. It's sad thinking all around.

It's no surprise that they have weak wills. In my opinion, Middle Eastern women have an air that they're spiritually beaten down, which they are because of the type of religion they subscribe to. And by the way, anti-theist all the way here. Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, etc., were all created to instill a sense of self worthlessness and irrational guilt so the followers would be more easily manipulated.
