Polygyny and Me

My children with Polygyny

Posted on: August 22, 2008

When I first got divorced, my children were feeling very sad because they did not have a father figure in their lives.

When I my husband came into our lives they found things had changed.

They have really someone they can talk to … sometimes my older son who is 15 has things he doesn’t want to talk to me about and he will ask me, ” when is Ami coming home because I need to talk to him about something.”

My daughter as talking the other day what a wonderful man her ami was and how he does so many things for us…. She is really happy to have this man as her Ami

When he comes into the house my youngerst son runs to him and hugs him. When my son Yousef was admitted in the hospital he was crying for his “ami” to come.

This man has brought a father figure into the lives of my children. He teaches them right from wrong. He speaks with them in a gentle way…. and he has taught them good adab….

I find he is just what they need in their lives. When the boy are misbehaving… I pick up the phone and say I will call Ami….immediately they say they will behave…. I do not think they are afraid of him, because he is very gentle. I think they respect him alot and do not want him to have a bad opinion of their behavior…

He is really a wonderful man.
