Because I Stay Since the beginning of March, we have turned our attention to intimate relationships. We examined various aspects of how you are in relationships, what could help improve your intimate relationships and asking yourself whether you are in fact in a spiritual partnership. Reviewing all these posts to come to a conclusion as we approach the end of the month, I wondered whether anyone thought we might have suggested you behave as if you are stupid? That is putting it bluntly. That is the furthest thing from our
There’s More To Them They say marriages are made in heavens. But, in reality, there is more to marriages than just simple heavenly connection. This “more to marriages” is obvious in societies where marriages have deep social connotations and they are not merely a union of two people at their own sweet will. That social connection is most visible in arranged marriages. Recently, during the traditional marriage season in Pakistan, which starts September each year and ends during Spring, roughly March); millions of couples tied the knot. Being a social
Troubling Words Some words simply cause me problems and quite often downright grief. Over my years of blogging on and off, I have shared a few of those. “Responsibility,” and “Surrender,” come to mind. Bittersweet is another.

What A Guy Wants Are guys put off by athletic or muscular women? Many men prefer beautiful champions, but whether a man likes a sportswomen is a question of choice. A report that I recently read stated that the depiction of women in sports, highlighting the areas of appearance and physique, puts added pressure on them. As a result of rigorous training, the bodies of these women change and when this happens it is a matter of what a man sees when he looks at them. Some men have labelled
Stand By Your Man Is The ‘Norm’ Why it is seen as a sign of weakness or unnatural way to be – I do not know, but what I do know is there are respectable men who stand by their women. Since time immemorial, women are expected to stand by their men in whatever capacity possible as they are considered to the backbone to every man’s ambition. However, have you ever heard anything said about the ambitious woman? Who will stand by her? In modern times, many high-profile women such
