"6alegni, agolek 6alegni"

Words uttered so casually from a wife, as if challenging a husband to do so.

Wrong reasons include:

-a- False idea that while she has the 'looks', men will still be interested. If that's what you have on offer, a body and a face, no wonder you say "6alegni" now.

-b- False idea that when she married waladna ely tegola now "6alegni", she would have everything she ever wanted. Including things she cannot afford on her own, nor did she afford when she was eb bait ahalha. If you married for money/getting things, no wonder you say "6alegni" now.

-c- She could not stand being 'related' to the women of her husband's family. o 3ad ya rait sij, 7amawat-ha wila halaga, wila shayfeen ro7hom 3alaiha. Be more original, no wonder you say "6alegni" now.

-d- Agreeing to a certain 'shar6' before marriage (e.g not working in this specific place), but after getting married she changes her mind wagt el sijeya. Mostly goes something like this : ana ma darast 4 isneen jam3a 3ashan tiyeeny ent wetgoly ma ashteghel bel mokan el flany, mo 3ajbek khalas 6alegni (Again, just an example).

-e- Always comparing her marriage to some friends' marriages, or whatever. Just ocmparing. If you thought marriage was a competition, then no wonder you say "6alegni' now.

-f- Not getting all that she has expected from marriage. Different from (b) since this is not about money. Can range from sex life to feeling she lost 'her love' for her husband. Not understanding how to communicate and jumping to "6alegni", as stated in (a) because she believes she can still appeal to other men.

  • isnt this stereotyping women to be shallow?

    i would argue that men who actually utter the words: "intay 6aleg" are much more shallow...

    but then again.. ive just done a week of nights and havent had any sleep.. so...

    maybe.. just maybe.. im wrong

  • Interesting. And yes, I heard of some women using such excuses. Looking forward to the "intay 6alig" episode.
