>The conversation started with :
An man, a patient, a student, husband…all of these?
What are your opinion about hemophilia? how do you explain it to others? or you don´t talk about it?

O que você vê quando se olha no espelho? um homem com projetos, um namorado, marido, trabalhador, estudante, paciente, doente,….?
Qual é sua opinião á respeito da Hemofilia? o que é a hemofilia para tí? de qué maneira explicaría para outros sobre tua condição? ou não falaría dela? ou para quem? e quando?

Most of them don´t talk about hemophilia but don´t feel that it is a subject that rule their life. However when it came to relationship and future like getting married , some social and local customs aroused:
there are 2 types of wedding
: taklidy and gheir taklidy.
Taklidi is more traditional and means that the couple doesn´t know each other before marriage. The parents of both find a suitable spouse and if they see each other and like their appearence. ..it is done.

So when I asked each one of them what kind of marriage they would like: the majority said “gheir taklidy” which would means to get to know each other before engagement. In this way they would be able to introduce hemophilia in the talk, and show their beloved that they are able to be autonomous and responsible about their own treatment. They would like to live a normal relationship based on mutual trust and love.


O tema que engatou com “conhece-te a ti mesmo” foi : relacionamentos (namoro e casamento)>

Claro que cada país tem seus costumes e rituais, e na Jordania existem 2 tipos de casamentos: o “Taklidy” que significa o casamento tradicional onde os pais apresentam para o filho uma jovem de “boa familia” que podería ser uma possível esposa> Se , ao olhar um para o outro na casa da noiva, eles consentem, o casamento acontece nos próximos meses. Neste caso não tem namoro, nem sair com ela para passear ou conversar.

O outro casamento é o “gheir taklidy” ou seja o não tradicional, ou moderno. é o caso da Rainha e do Rei do pais que se conheceram na faculdade e se amaram para depois casarem.

A maioría dos meninos  escolheram o tipo moderno! que bom! desta forma , eles poderíam apresentar também a hemofilia do jeito deles, mostrando que não é um bicho de sete cabeças, que podem trabalhar, ser responsável mesmo se as vezes terão sangramentos. A idéia é se conhecer mutuamente, se amar para poder viver junto formando um lar.
