The other day I watched an Arab comedy program and the episode was about married couples who are from different Arab states and they don't understand each other because of their dialects.

 

The most hilarious was a Yemani (Yeman) married to a Tunisiyya (Tunis).

 

All the couples went to a (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_glossary/glossary_m002.html#Muslim"]Muslim[/url] (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_glossary/glossary_q000.html#qadi"]qadi[/url] because they are having marriage problems due to the dialect. That particular one told the (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_glossary/glossary_q000.html#qadi"]qadi[/url] that he doesn't get anything his wife says. Once he asked her what she prepared him for dinner and she said hout! :D in Yemani it means whale but tin tunisi it means fish!

 

And the (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_glossary/glossary_q000.html#qadi"]qadi[/url] was like :D hout!

How did they agree to get married then? pfft.

 

In our family we have quite a few people who are married to non-Iraqis. We have Palestinian, Syrian (about 5, I think), Bulgarian, American, Italian, Pakistani and...Sudani!

 

In other words, we have a mini UN in our family. :D
