How many of you hear Deewaniya on Marina FM from 12pm - 2pm everyday? I try to take my lunch break usually at that time so I can hear it while driving. Its a really interesting program and I have to say most of the time I am just laughing and I feel it gives me a good break from work.

The other day I was listening to it and there was a khataba who was telling different issues about marriages and how people are so picky. Some thing really caught me when I heard that how some guys are so picky that they go to visit the girls house and if they don't like the house from outside they return back without even visiting the house. I was really shocked when I heard this. I had a million questions in my mind.

What are families looking for in marriage these days? Are they looking for a caring and loving girl or looking for a family with a bank full of money? Where are we going? Why are we so picky about the family name? Why are we so racist? There was an endless stream of questions flowing in my mind....

Let me tell you my mom keeps asking me what is my choice of a good girl and my answer is I don't know mom. I just say her she should be simple as I dont like too much makeup on girls. I am never picky if she is bnt el ....... or whoever. My parents care that she should be white or fair in color but for me non of this is important. All I care about is we have a good understanding and we end up as good husband and wife.

If you are not married what is the choice of you guy or girl? Are you picky about your choices? I need to hear it loud here.

Bless u amu. I don't like the racist thoughts about family names, especially when ppl differentiate each other on the basis on there surnames!

I'm not picky. I just want the one who loves me and I love her, thats all.

we're all a little bit racist even if we don't know it bro :)

I don't listen to the radio.

My choice would be a guy I can be myself with 24/7 without being scared that I'd be judged, but my parents have their own standards.

I don't think I'm picky.

My choice of a guy is someone who I can be comfortable with without worrying about how I should act. I want someone who is tall, manly, warm, animal lover, outgoing and comes from my same environment.

I'm a bit picky, but only because I want to be comfortable with that person.

Did i mention i am not picky? :D

Eldewaneyya 9ra7a 3ejbaaa, cool, nas funny ya3ny, o their timing is perfect!! SHAGAAAAGY

You know..

I always used to tell my mother: I want a tan 7an6aweyya woman, black hair, min eljema3a..I want her to be 7adha from us ya3ny!!

And my brother always used to say: I want american wife, blonde, white..sham7oo6a, I dont want kuwaiti woman, cuz when they age, they become ba66a..fat, but american woman always take care of their shape, exercise..even if they are 3yayiz!!

You know what the funny thing amu?? I married the american woman, and my brother married the kuwaiti woman...

You never really marry what you think you want, when ever you are still only thinking about it!!

Ne9eeb..kella min allah =)

That's interesting. I don't know if what I'm going to say is going to lable me as picky or racist =D
I would like to live with a man who can understand what I say when I say it and what I feel when I feel it. Have a great sense of humor and is a little crazy. I'm not so strict so don't expect me to behave all the time =p
Faithful, exciting, outgoing.

Hmm I'm sure there is more but I don't wanna be a bore =p..
but isn't that what we all want?

I will try my best not to say bla bla bla looks don't matter... bla bla bla he doesn't have to be rich bla bla bla... BUT in this day and age it DOES matter - personally I don't care what he looks like as long he's chubby haha.. but when we're old and grey looking at our grandkids playing walla looks don't matter, he doesn't have to have the most recent cartier watch and shiny ferarri parked up front.. Cos all these things fade away and you're left with love, that is the only thing that will keep you together... right?

Respect and
Understanding are the basic things to look for.

Love is something which will happen only after living under one roof.

Rest everything matters less in a long run for a generally happy married life.

~ Soul

P.S: A Man who respects woman for the essence of a woman itself is genuine.
