Today I pose a question for you. Women traveling alone, without her mahram. Is this acceptable in todays society? How about in case of dire emergency? Should a woman be able to travel to see a sick relative or attend a funeral without her husband having to accompany her?
I am so angry and frustrated as I sit here and wait for my husband to get leave so I can go see my mother in the United States. She is very ill and in ICU. When I first got the call she was in serious condition. She is stable now, but still not out of the woods. I was supposed to go last Monday but now am forced to wait as my husband can not travel with me for another few days. I have already taken off from work.
I am 34 years old. I have been on my own in life since the age of 17. I was married before for 13 years. I have traveled MANY times on my own and can take care of myself.
Have any of you encountered this?
I honestly feel like grabbing my passport and going. I never thought I would be in this situation. Helplessness. I want to grab my passport and run. I just may.
