West has everything except a sound family system 2. East has nothing except a sound family system If west could get our family system, they would make the most ideal society of this world or vice-versa. I am really glad to see that females themselves are rejecting this utter non-sense P. I am wondering if mother of this author had thought the same, which nationality would he be from?
Another feeble attempt by a newbie writer to make some impression read: Maybe this is how marriages work in your family and that is the norm of mindset in your household Syed Zain Raza but rest assured there are thousands and thousands of women happily married to Pakistani men with more progressive views and accepting families.
On a lighter note, what choice Pakistani girls will have then? Yes, Pakistani men have their peculiar pros and cons…and the situation is not that much deplorable in fact! Men abroad are not super heroes even! I am sorry for whoever in your circle went through an experience bad enough to trigger this exaggerated and childish take on our society. This may be the case in more than a few households but dude to generalize it to an entire society is just absurd.
I find it very annoying when young kids like you fashionably demean your own country and society for God knows what gains. Its disappointing to say the least. What you exaggerated into this obnoxious piece is an ill in our society just like any other society. Most of comments i have read are women disagreeing with the blogger and rightly so..

Apart from the 5th point which is also very terribly described, all the other 9 points are just horrible. These 9 facts can only be found in families which dont respect the Islamic and Ethical values.. And fortunately there are a few of them left nowadays. I have seen over a hundred marriages uptil now and only 1 or 2 of them might fit in the criteria of this trash piece of article.
Stop being judgmental about the other tons of good men around the country. I feel the author just tried to stay away from the facts in order to just make this a funny post published by The ET. Each and every point holds true, all Pakistani men and their mothers want 19 yrs old working doctor who is expert in household chores: Well done Mr Raza, on telling the entire world how bad we pakistani men are: Dude not knowing the number of even fard rakats in a namaz and now all this hatred for Pakistani men, which rock were you living under for all these years?

Probably Make sure you should have enough earning at that time so that you may live in a separate house with your lady, to save your boys from that horrible situations you mentioned above!!!
