“He left me for a younger woman. We have 5 children together and the time I needed him the most, he wasn’t there. Instead, he got tired of it and found himself a younger version of me. If he was going to treat me like this, why did he marry me in the first place? What did she have that I didn’t have? Let me tell you, if I knew this was going to happen, I would have stayed at my parents’ home, enjoying singlehood for the rest of my life. I don’t want to generalise but at this very moment, I truly believe that men are responsible for women’s misery.”

“Wuu naga cararay oo gabar iga da’yar ayuu guursaday. Waxaan leenahay 5 caruuro. Markaan u dhalay, wakhtigii igu adkaa ee aan uu baahnaa in uu ii tageero ayuu naga cararay. wuu na dayacay, gabar kale oo da’yar buu guursaday. Ma garankaro sababtuu u guursaday ee caruurtisa u dayacay.  Hadii aan ogaan laha inuu sidaa ila dhaqmayo gurigii waalidkay kama imadeen waa iska joogi laha. Inkasto caruur Ilaahay isiiyey hadana marmar nolosha sidan oo kale ah waxaan is iraahda guur la’aanta dhaanta. Ma doonayo in dhibaatada dumarka dusha ugu saaro dhamaan ragga Soomaaliyeed laakin hadda, waxaan aaminsanahay in dhibta dumarka Soomaalida haysata  inteeda badan raggu inee masuul ka yihin.”
