Maryam’s Guilty Little Secrets (Part 22)

This one is a little more heinous than number 21.

I judge people – specifically couples.

If one is more attractive than the other I instantly wonder why she/he picked their spouse.

Looking better than my better half is important to me but not at the cost of HIS appearance.

Ya Allah, please don’t make me eat my words. Please.

  1. This one made me rofl.

    Sometimes it in the eye of the beholder.

    Although when it comes to love, looks really are not everything.

    Dammit, now I will be doing the same!!

  2. tauqeer: they are for men and the families that pick their spouses

    rani: welcome 🙂 i love your name 🙂
    how do you even fall in love in an arranged marriage situation??

    bibi: in my experience i’ve not found the men to be extraordinary at all… only once actually and i’ll pay that but that’s it

  3. Being a Muslim it shouldn’t be, do you agree?.

    As for falling in love with a spouse:

    “And among His Signs is that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He put love and mercy between your hearts. Verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.” [Sûrah Rûm 30:21]

  4. Thanks! 🙂

    Well – sometimes there is chemistry when you put 2 people toghter. And sometimes there isnt. I will leave it at that 🙂

    And @Tauqeer – In fact looks at considered to be one of the 4 main reasons to choose a spouse.

    “A woman is married for four (reasons): For her wealth, for her lineage, and for her beauty, so choose the one who possesses the Deen (religion) and you will be successful.” [And related by Muslim (2/1086)]
