This woman is a heavy-set mom of 12 and also as she arranges by herself in the little settee in Um Majed’s family room she eliminates her black colored veil therefore the pious black colored gloves that enable her to shake fingers with males that are maybe not her loved ones.
Um Majed sets straight down small glasses of hot coffee that is turkish relieve the stress. Nezar is A syrian refugee and shopping for a spouse on her behalf child. She lists the girl’s qualities.
“She is tall and pretty,” she informs Um Majed. “She completed the 7th grade.”
“There is the one available. He could be Saudi,” Um Majed responses.
This is just what Nezar desires to hear. Saudis, flush with petrodollars, can pay well.
