The Saudi husband vs the Finnish husband

This post is not to be taken too seriously it´s just a humorous comparison of the typical Saudi man and his Finnish counterpart as husbands..

The Saudi man is very romantic, sweet talk is what he knows.
The Finnish man doesn´t talk or kiss as the saying goes.

When the light bulbs need changing the Saudi man calls the Pakistani electrician to the rescue.
The Finnish man thinks, I might as well change them all to new.

If the wife is in a bad mood the Saudi man sends her to her mother's house for pampering,
while the Finnish man is stuck with the wife and her constant rambling.

When the Saudi man comes home he expects a hot meal.
The Finnish man only can only dream of such a great deal.

When the wife is not home the Saudi man orders home delivered shwarma because he doesn´t know how to cook.
The Finnish man creates a nice dinner by looking in the cooking book.

If the Saudi´s favorite football team looses he heads for the sheesha place to unwind.
The Finnish man is already in the bar watching ice hockey and getting drunk out of his mind.

If the team wins the Saudi man calls his friends to celebrate.
The Finnish man will stay in the bar until very late.

When the car needs the oils changed the Saudi man sends the driver to get it fixed.
The Finnish man asks his wife to do it and not to forget the beer and chips.

When their child is born the Saudi man goes to the souq to get his wife gold and diamonds.
The Finnish man heads to the bar to get drunk with his friends.

The Saudi husband leaves a trail of thobes and ghutras for the wife to launder,
while his Finnish counterpart wears the same socks for a week then throws them on the floor for the wife to pick up and murmur.

As soon as he comes home the Saudi man sits on the couch to watch football and wants his wife to bring tea,
while the Finnish man sits watching ice hockey and asks for a beer or three.

If the pipes need plumming the Saudi man calls an Indian plummer to do the job,
while the Finnish man pours some vodka down the drain to flush out the clog.

The Saudi husband shows his love by giving his wife chocolate and a foot massage,
The Finnish husband thinks it´s enough he took out the garbage.

LOL I loved this. My Pakistani is (luckily?) more like the Saudi husband. Lol. And my Pakistani husband indeed changes light bulbs around the house :-P

Laylah said...

My Italian man is like your Saudi husband - minus the diamonds and gold. I prefer to buy my own, but that's because I'm an American woman who can and does buy her own stuff. On the other hand, Italians (like the French) invented romance...

Notice that, as an Armenian-American, I'm not marrying an Armenian man. They never love you as much as they love their moms and then themselves...

I just got married to a Saudi alhamdulilah
The lines you said about Saudi men are so true that its a little scary and funny at the same time

cute; but it's telling that so much of the difference is not due to culture but to economics. notice how many times the Indian/Pakistani or the worker is mentioned when it comes to the Saudi husband 'doing' something. He doesn't really do it himself, does he?

Stephanie said...
