Quote Scrimmage: Fary is a perfect example why some cultures insist on women wearing burkas and not speaking unless spoken to. I’m all in favor of sending her back home to Iran where I’m sure they would appreciate her candor. They would fit her with a burka with a built in muzzle, and maybe a shock collar.
This is America, and in America we respect all cultures, but we also have community standards that everyone is expected to abide by. No one should come here expecting everyone else to adapt to them, they need to adapt to the way we do things here. If someone expects to enjoy the fruits of living in this wonderful country, then they must also expect to assimilate into the culture here and contribute to it. We don’t encourage immigrants to set themselves apart from the rest of the community, keeping to themselves, never participating in society or never learning English because we want them to truly join with us and become part of the unique “Melting Pot” that is the United States of America and enrich us all by sharing the best of themselves and their backgrounds.
In America you don’t see people raising goats in their back yards in suburban neighborhoods just because that’s the culture they grew up in, and likewise you don’t see people being forced into arranged marriages against their will, or stoned to death for adultery, though both barbaric practices are common elsewhere in the world. Those sort of things are unacceptable and illegal in this country, and anyone here born of foreign extraction had better understand that and get with the program.
There are also standards for acceptable behavior and basic respect for others in general that transcend any culture, and Fary is a stranger to all those standards. She’s a miserable person in ANY language. Until and unless she learns to control herself, she deserves to get back exactly the kind of harsh and unforgiving treatment she so easily dishes out, but I doubt if she will ever change, because Nadia will never stand up to her until it’s too late and Fary has ruined every chance at happiness she will ever have. She'll just continue to drink more and more, and eventually, after Fary has run off every man she loves, Nadia will just marry some loser to spite her mom and then she'll turn into her mother, complaining and criticizing him and everyone else and everything because by then she'll be miserable too. Eventually, even that can become a way of life and for Nadia, that’s what passes for normal based on the role model she’s had working on her all this time.
Run Brandon, RUN! Life’s too short and he deserves to find someone who doesn’t need to be pampered and fawned over ever second, and whose family will appreciate and accept him for the great catch that he is.
With statements like that I'm starting to believe that Nadia is way too good for him.Nadia is nothing like her mom.What do you want her to do?Choose between her mom and her boyfriend? Brandon would lose because no matter what her mother is,SHE is first and formost her mother .No one is making Brandon take all that.He can walk out of this relation anytime he wants.It's his choice to stay and fight along with Nadia for their relationship .And Nadia has been dealing with her mom's behavior for her entire life,her mom treats every boyfriends Nadia gest this way.So it's not against Brandon personnaly.And since we don;t know idf etrhe is more that we don't know, so we can't judge.But brandon knew what he was getting into when he started to date Nadia.Fary was clear from the begining ,she didn't like him,ever since both Nadia and Brandon are trying to have her come around.But it was pointless.Yes Brandon can run because he can't take Fary's behavior but he would lose teha wondeful woman who "truly loves him and makes him happy"(his words).He's in a relationship with Nadia not her mom.So giving up on Nadia because of her mom would be a very coward behavior.He knows that's how she treats everyone,not just him.We saw how she treated, Michelle,the interior designer..so he should be able to ignore her and focus on him and Nadia.
