394) 3ayza Atgawez Book!

I have been reading the first edition of Modewanet El Sherouk, specifically "3ayza Atgawez" for Ghada Abdel Al. The idea of publishing very popular blogs in a book is great

Ghada has been tackling the issue of females not getting married in Egypt and passing on her experience through a character (herself) called "Bride". The book is hilarious, and she really is very honest and reflects the reality of what happens in the Egyptian families, and the potential husbands in gawz el saloonat.
But as a guy, there is the other side of the story that I think should be covered in a counter-book may be called "mesh 3ayez atgawez" because lots of us as guys lost faith in marriage and became afraid (for many reasons) to hook our lives up with an Egyptian "family" till the rest of our lives!

Not only guys ya Mohaly, lots of Egyptian girls rafe3een 3alam mesh 3ayza atgawez, dah yerga3na tany lel meca and orga options :)
I don't think there is one good reason for anyone to sign a contract to sell his soul to a devil he knows nothing about. And even if marraige become an option akeed it should never be done 3ala tare2et el saloonat. I personally call it gawaz el gawamees.
I even once called it "legal prostitution" a term that once opened hell fire on me. bas this is the truth lel asaf as far as things are being done the way they are now.

list 5 good reasons, list the things that only marriage can do for you?
As for e3mar el ard part, I guess e7na 3amarna el ard kefaya it is about to explode :) :) :)
gawaz el saloonat the way it is now, is a pure gawaz gawamees, gamoosa 7elwa we tor monaseb are being matched by nas la te3raf el gamoosa 3ayza eh wala el tor kan nefsoh fi eh. el 3'arad mn el gawaz zay ma2olty keda e3mar el ard (sex, kids and they are done). This is not my idea of marriage, I won't buy a bull for some little suasage and I won't get kids in the time elly momken adman fih el gana bekafalet yateem. For me marriage is something more, it is something sacred. It might be the right thing to do, but it should be done for the right reasons and in the right way. mesh abdan en someone who doesn't know who am I yegebly 3arees kol elly beyfakar fih enoh yefresh el sha2a bekam wel fara7 bekam we mesh mohem el 3aroosa kol el banat zay ba3d wel noor lama beytefy mafeesh 7aga betfre2. naga7 el gawaz ba3d keda maloosh 3elaka betafahom el tarafien, le2n 7ata elly ye3rafo ba3d mesh beykono motafhmeen 100%, naga7 el gawaz marboot asasan bedarget el sabr wel ta7amol. 3ashan keda fi nas te2ool el salonat betnga7 aktar, lw dah sa7ee7 haykoon le2n el metgawezeen salonat 3amalo akhta2 kefaya we beykhafo yanfaselo 3ashan dah e3lan en el process kolha kanet fashla. we 3ashan asbab tanya keteera yetool shar7aha

اولا يا شيماء انا بشوف عرسان صالونات كتير و ده مش عييب و نفسي طبعا اتجوز عن حب و مين مش نفسه
ما فيش حد بيتجوز بالصورة اللي انتي بتفتكريها في الصالونات ثم جواز الصالونات ده لاهو في مصر بس و لا العالم العربي بس لكن في العالم كله و هاديكي مثال
عندك مثلا في فيلم اجنبي و رومانسي و كله شقاوة و واحدة زعلانة ان صاحبتها منغير بوي فريند تقوم الجدعنة شغالة و تظبطلها واحد جامد و يتقابلوا هما الاتنين
و الاتنين بيكونوا عارفين انهامقابلة متلافقة و بيشوفوا حصل توافق ولا لا لو حصل بيتقابلوا تاني و هكذا و يمكن الفيلم يكمل و يتجوزوا
نفس الكلام هنا يعني اهل الجاموسة اقصد العروسة مش بيجروها من رقبتها و يالا يا بهيمة علي بيت جوزك منغير ما تعرفه ولا تقعد معاه عشروميييت مرة لحد ما تقول هو ده و بحبه يا بابا و لو مش عاجبها يبقي بالسلامة يا شربات و حصل خير و الواد بترجعله حاجته

و بعد الشر بعد الشر لو قعدت 8 سنيين زي الجبنة الرومي ولا عشرين سنة و خللت هاقول برده عايزة اتجوز

و انتي يا ستي عايزة قائمة
خدي يا ستي عندك
مين فينا بتصحا من النوم مابيكونش نفسها يكون في جوز ملاقح جنبها و يصحي
منعكش و يقولها بحبك

مين فينا مابتحلمش ببيت دافي تحس فيه بكيانها في كل ركن فيه

مين فينا مابتحلمش يكون لها ابن من صلبها مش مستلفاه من الجيران

تضمه بحناناها لقلبها و تربيه و تفرح بيه

مين فينا ما بتتمناش تنام علي صدر حبيبها و ترمي كل هموم الدنيا ورا ضهرها

مين فينا مش نفسها بعد جواز عشرين سنة تقعد تبص علي صور جوازها و اول مولود ليها و دي لما اترقت في الشغل و دي لما ابنها بدء يحبي و دي لما حب و قالي انا عايز اتجوز يا ماما

يا شيخة دي كفاية كلمة ماما دي لوحدها بالدنيا و ما فيها



ملحوظة : موضوع ان احنا عمرناها خلاص في لحظة ممكن تلاقي الارض دي مش عليها ولا مخلوق بأمر ربنا ثم انا مابقولش نبقي ارانب و نجيب بالعشرة التعمير لا يقصد بيه كدة و ألا كان كفاية الحيوانات بتعبده و بتخلف و بتعمر الارض برده

Hello Again Hagar
I won't argue your reasons, you might have apoint but :) and el kelma di bet3'ayar 7agat keteer, in the family I live in you are not allowed to meet 3arees el 3'afla more than once before you give an answer, yes = engagement, no = a fight, or momken tetganeny and te2oly agaweb lama abloh tany or mesh 3arfa akarar and here el dema3' el se3edy tetla3 we tesma3y kalam mn no3 lieh, howa enty 3ayza tegarbeeh el awal wala eh.

The step-ups u described el nas fiha betet2abel we mesh fi neyteha el gawaz asasan. As a person mesh 3arfa ezzay wa7ed or wa7da ye2abel 7ad benyet el gawaz, bas a3araf en momken a2abel 7ad benyet to get to know him and see where things will go. It will usually go fi 2arab 7iet :)

Anyway, if you are lucky enough enk to get to meet 3arees el 3'afla 100 mara, then get engaged with the option enek termeloh 7agtoh we ma7desh ye2olek ya3ny eh tetfeskh khotobtek, wala betgarbeeh wala kol el 7agat di, you are so lucky enek mn alex and ma3ndkeesh 3er2 se3eedy, 7adana fi el other face of the moon No is better than el bahdala.
And 7adana in the planet Shimaa where motherhood isn't the essential need, and the warm home is hers and men mesh me7tageen yenamo 3ashan yetnkesho we ye2olo ba7bek :) Marriage might be the right thing but will never be done for the wrong reasons

hi guys, I liked this topic. but with my respect to your point of view i don't agree with u mohaly or you shaimaa as well. may be marriage has alot of cons like problems and so on but also it has alot and alot of pros.at least when you get older you will find someone to share your life with you with his love and care. may be I'mnot planning to take such a step now but I'm really longing to start up my family with someone i really love. u made me feel with your expersions about marriage that u gonna start a fight not a holy relationship.
I think that when u have to be afraid mohaly, u sholud afraid from not hooking your life with a family to stand beside you anytime you are down specially when u get older. don't think about yourself now when u are still young have alot of friends around you and also have a good health. just think about urself within 10 years as an ex. what will u do.( long term planning ;) )
i think that this deserve that u hook ur life up to them.

and for you shaimaa may be i don't like the idea of ( gawaz el salonat) and i won't get married with this way ever but it's not that bad. at least from my point of view this is (best of the worth as they say) i do respect this better than having a boyfriend and start arelationship haram asln wy ne3ml blawey and at the end it's over. at least this relationship fel nor odam ahlk mafesh haram fy keda.

Mohaly said...

u r right only love about marraige and long term planning, but my point as a guy is kind of different than what you were commenting on... I was saying that we (guys) are afraid from loosing our idependence, dreams,..etc if our wives have this possessive way of looking at marriage (egyptian way) and the word family in the post means the bigger families. I definately want to get married specially that maleesh fel hags, but I do wanna establish a family where all its members helps each other to fulfil their personal and small family dreams, without any influence from the older families as well, and in salonat marriage the possibility of having the bigger families controlling the lives is higher.

By the way Hagar, we also dream of having a cute face to see in the morning, a lovely supportive wive when we are back from home, someone we can feel that we can protect and she feels safe with us, someone who can raise our children right, someone who after 30 years wont regret sharing our life with... so ANA 3AYEZ ATGAWZ, But ANA MESH 3AYEZ ATGAWEZ BEL TAREE2A DI, el mosseba that it seems that the saloonat is becoming the higher option as one grow older!!! rabena yostor!

علي فكرة يا شيماء انا مش من اسكندرية انتي جبتي الكلام ده منين انا اساسا يعني الجذور بتاعتنا من سوهاج يعني الصعيد الصعيد ولا يزال فكر بابا صعيدي بس مودرن متفتح و مثقف و مش بيضغط علينا في حاجة
و يا جمااااااااااااااااااعة انا عايزة اتجوز عن حب جدااااا بس انا بؤمن بالقدر , ما يمكن عريس الصالونات ده يكون هو قدري و هو ربنا كاتبه ليا و ماكنتش هاتعرف عليه غير لما اشوفه صالونات اهو مافيش حد بياخد اكتر من نصيبه و قدره
و لو جه واحد عن حب خيط و بكرة ده انا نفسي يحصل ربنا يبعت بس هو يجي بس و اشوفه
ربنا يرزقك بأبن الحلال اللي نفسك فيه
و ملحوظة انا ماكنتش اقصد بكلامي اننا نجرب و ان كان ماعجبناش نرميه لية هو جوز جزمة مش ده خالص قصدي بس في لينك بيحصل بينك و بينه لو ماحصلش من اول مرة يبقي مش هايحصل


only love
انا مبسوطة ان في حد عايز يتجوز و في صفي بدل ما انا كنت عاملة زي النخلة في الصحرا لوحدي كدة و هبلة و بهاتي ع الفاضي ربنا يرزقك ببنت الحلال و يكملك بعقلك


Mohalyيااستاذ
اية الموقف المعادي ده من البنات المصريات لية ان شاء الله دول حتي من نفس منبت الارض السمراماحناش جايين من كوكب تاني بنتكلم هاشو هاشو ولا بناكل اجوازنا ولا دماغنا خاوية اننا مانفهمش حياة الراجل الجليلة

Hi guys again :)
mohaly i didn't get your point in the begining. but I think that ur word (losing) isn't true.every one of us know that after marriage alot of things will be changed.so u will (CHANGE NOT LOSE). and it's not only you but also she will change alot of things like you.and this isn't related to any nationality at all whether this is an egyptian girl or even coming from mars.
wy ba3den ya mohaly mafesh khof 3lak coz I know that u won't take such astep with a girl if u rn't sure that she will share with u everything u r seeking to achieve (dreams and every moment in your life).
so good luck wy rbna yerzo2ak by bnt el halal ely nefsak feha orayeb 3shan enta bgd 7ad kowayes wy 3shan nefra7 bek ba2a, hane3ml lek a7la far7 3la el blog bta3ak :D ;)

Thank You Only Love, changing is fine, losing is not. It has to be a win-win.

I really hope to find the right girl soon coz I am almost fedup of succeeding lewa7dy, even success is not that great when you do it alone!
