Free widows dating site
I would recommend anyone that is thinking of joining a site to just try it and see how you get on.He was looking for a woman with particular attributes, hopefully a widow of a man killed in the struggle against Israel, without children, between 25 and 30, from southern Gaza. “She is beautiful and a widow of a martyr at the same time,” says Abu Mustafa, using the word preferred by Palestinians for a killed fighter, often a terrorist to Israelis. “When I get wealthy, I will marry the third wife.” The couple met on Wesal – it means communion or reunion in Arabic – a first-of-its-kind matchmaking website in Gaza.“In most cases the husband’s family pressures the woman to marry the brother-in-law to control her life and seize any financial aid she receives.” Owda adds that if the widow’s husband is affiliated with a political party, it might intervene and pressure the woman to marry a man from same group.She will often agree because she is struggling financially and the group will pay her a salary.
Traditionally, the polite way for a groom’s family to signal a proposal request is to ask to go to the bride’s family’s house for a cup of coffee.
With the Wesal service, a prospective groom receives a woman’s address when the two have exchanged “likes” online.
The man then has 48 hours to propose, something still typically done over the traditional coffee at her home.
“This matchmaking service is positive because it encourages these women to choose the potential husband without fear and pressure in this religious and patriarchal society,” says Owda.
Wesal not only facilitates marriages for widows, but also for the divorced and those who have never married.
