Anyone considering marrying a Muslim needs to see this movie first.
I remember my social studies teacher in middle school showing this to the class. She saw it as a lesson on other cultures, including modern day suppression of women’s rights. While she was a liberal in many areas, “Not Without My Daughter” was one of her few class movies that was actually educational and a good thing to show kids.
They didn’t marry.
Same mistake though.
Back in the 1990s I worked at IBM in the DFW area. One of the women who worked in the credit union had married a Jordanian Muslim in the late 1980s and had several children. Everything was hunky-dory while they were living in Texas, but then the husband took them all back to Jordan on the pretext of letting his parents meet their grandchildren. Once there, everything changed. He decided that they wouldn’t return to the US, and under Jordanian (Muslim) law the children belonged to the father. He moved the family in with his parents and he and his mother began mistreating the wife. She eventually left and returned to the US without the children. Somewhat later she returned with a plan and was able to smuggle the kids over into Israel and then back to the US where she filed for divorce and sole custody. She went through a very difficult and painful time that could all have been avoided had she chosen a mate more carefully.
Any girl foolish enough to marry a Muslim should take heed.
