yeah you got that right.
me and manal are going to barcelona for a seminar (we'll be talking about our blog btw), today they gave me the visa but refused to give manal one.
well you see we only got one bank account, and it happens to be in my name. Manal has a 'tawkil', her signature is registered in the bank database and she can deposit and withdraw money 3adi ya3ni. since we spend most of our time together we got one credit card that sometimes happens to reside in my pocket and sometimes in manal's handbag.
for some reason that is not good enough for embassy, why is it anyone's business how me and manal manage our money is beyond me.
is it just plain stupidity? is it cultural imperialism? or maybe they're just trying to liberate poor Manal who cannot realize her full potential without being fiscally independent or something.
Security guards tell a fairy tale from embassy role of a young couple who wanted to go to spain on honeymoon, they bride got a visa but the groom didn't, their souls still haunt the metal detector at the enterance.
you know what a country whose people fail to act like proper mamals shouldn't be telling others how to run their marriages.
