Zaytoon Joins International Enclave
By Guest Reporter :: 25 Views :: Living & Lifestyle, Business & Finance

Guest reporter Molly Abraham of the Detroit News (Michigan, USA) reports:

Michigan, USA -- Zaytoon -- it means "olive" in Arabic -- is as fresh and appealing as that suggests. It opened this summer in an airy, high-ceilinged space that has housed several previous restaurants.

One of them -- La Fendi -- is a direct antecedent of the bright new Zaytoon. Brothers Tony and Raad Samona were partners in that Mideastern spot, as well as the original La Fendi in Lathrup Village. Both closed in 2003.

And so after another restaurant tried and failed in the West Bloomfield Township space, Tony Samona's son and daughter reclaimed the address in a strip mall that is pretty remarkable for its international array of restaurants.

Chaldeans Contend With Divorce
By Rita Abro :: 72 Views :: Living & Lifestyle, Community & Culture

For Enam (last name withheld due to reputable concerns for her children) the affair was unintended and regretful.  “I was stupid and selfish,” Enam says about her extramarital affair.  “I ruined my life, my children’s life; hurt my family, and all for what?”  Enam, 45 was caught cheating on her husband with a co-worker while employed at a mortgage company.  The affair ended a 25 year marriage.

Although much rarer in the Chaldean community than their western counterparts, divorce among Chaldeans is an issue the community continues to examine.  “Western liberal values, materialism, promotion of reckless behaviors, stereotypical views, and choosing a poor spouse all lead to divorce if the clues are ignored,” says Joan Hannawa, a recent psychology graduate who completed her Ph.D in relationship psychology.  “Chaldean men and women, have to learn new martial skills to cope, strengthen their marriage, and build a loving family when married in a western society.  If they don’t, they are left vulnerable to the ills of western society.  Eventually, without the proper defenses the illness will break into their marriage and destroy the family.”

Like most marriages, the Chaldean community considers marriage a special and sacred institution that binds one man to one woman for life.   Fidelity is sacred in marriage.  To lose such trust is immediate grounds for divorce in western societies.  The same is true with Chaldeans.  However, Chaldeans who divorce also face a community “Scarlet Letter” that further underscores the importance of marriage and the harm divorce brings to the couple, children, and community.

In this article www.CHALDEAN.org examines the Chaldean perspective on divorce and focuses on infidelity brought upon by work related relationships.
