Should women walk behind their men


I live quite close to a Direct Provision centre in Dublin and I get to see a lot of the new arrivals out and about . 

On a few occasions now , I've observed middle eastern couples where the wife dressed in a Burqa walks behind the husband as he leads the way . 

Only today , a man was walking with his wife trailing behind about three metres . she was dressed in a pink burqa which I guess isn't as bad as all black but the husband turned to her and said something like hurry up or words along those lines .  They both stopped at the social welfare office by which time the wife was almost level with the husband . 

Google searches for this behaviour explain it away as chivalry , they say the husband is simply making the way Safe for his wife and google images for women walking behind their men is almost non existant despite it being a regular practice in many middle eastern countries .  

I was reading a blog post recently written by an american student who went to study in Pakistan for a year . He lived with a Pakistani family in a Shiite village outside of Lahore .  He said the mother of the family would wear a full burka in public and walk several paces behind her husband . When his american girlfriend decided to visit him , he ran into problems because she didn't want to comply with the rules which meant his reputation in the village would be damaged . The mother of the family begged him to ask his girlfriend to be more modest. so eventually he told his girlfriend that either she obeyed the rules or they couldn't go out in public . He said she was furious but begrudgingly complied , his village reputation was preserved but walks with his girlfriend were no longer fun he said .

There have also been cases of husbands divorcing their wives for refusing to walk behind . A woman in Saudi Arabia was divorced by her husband for walking ahead of him despite repeated warnings according to NDTV . The man gave his wife repeated warnings to keep a step behind him but she kept walking ahead of him after which he divorced her . 

My question is for Irish Women . Is this something you could learn to embrace . Would you mind walking behind your boyfriend or husband , could you eventually take to it given some time . Perhaps this is one of those customs our politicians say will "enrich" Ireland . What are your views on it .

this is indoctrination . plain and simple . you can see some of the children are not happy . all these slogans like love is love have been used by the radical left for years . yes many of these children will go on to become activists for the lgbt movement which is the intended goal but some will end up resenting the school for what its doing , brainwashing them

would it be legal to sack someone for not having a vaccine . i hope not .

Jul 29 , 1:43 pm
should be a private matter , if you got the vaccine why worry about someone who hasn't because your presumably protected anyway so it makes no difference . I myself didn't get it but thats my personal choice . I just didn't want it but I respect other peoples right to make up their own mind on what suits them
