    A couple of points I'd like to make:

    Regarding the marriage of a UK bred Pakistani girl to a native Pakistani. In the UK we currently have a divorce rate amongst Pakistanis that is increasing dramatically. Though specific staistics have not been published the figure is likely to be very high. Marriage between UK bred Pakistanis and native Pakistanis are failing and below is my explanation.

    Native Pakistanis have been brought up in a society with a particular set of values that differ fundamentally with those of the UK. Here we have a different mindset and we ought to acknowledge that. A native Pakistani will have a mysogynistic perspective and this affects the relationship.

    It is common for native Pakistanis when they arrive here in the UK to be unemployed. Their command of English is poor and they are unable to find employment in established companies. Indeed UK bred Pakistanis have to struggle to gain employment and progress in their careers. Consequently the wife who can speak fluent English and is better qualified and able to work ends up working. You then have a situation where the wife works while the husband stays at home.

    Now given the mentality of the native Pakistani husband he wants to be in control yet he doesn't work while his wife does. He wants to order his wife around yet she pays the bills. You can imagine the friction and stress in such a relationship.

    The fact of the matter is that when a UK bred Pakistani girl gets married to a native Pakistani the relationship often suffers.

    I'm sorry if I've hurt any feelings but I'm telling it like it is. I don't want to cause offense to native Pakistanis. We are both Pakistanis but we do have differing value systems and sometimes they clash.

    For more info on Pakistani culture in the UK have a look at:

    http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acad...91/culture.htm

    Now moving on to your comment about Blacks. I take offense to the word nigger when used in your context. Pakistanis in the UK do have their own unique culture, we even have a tendancy to add the word "in it" at the end of each sentence something no one else does.
    I don't think we try to be white, perhaps your misinterpreting.

      Farouq Bhai well said, i feel that your understanding of the differences between Western Raised Pakistanis and Pakistan Raised Pakistanis is quite accurate.
      Even down south the situation is much the same, you marry someone from Pakistan, call them over get them settled and then life becomes hell for the western person.
      OH WELL - What Can Be Done?

        I utterly agree with u guys we've got differences between western raised (Not so) Pakis. and the original Pakis. who brought up in Pakistan and I agree there are people in Pakistan who are fascinated with the glamour of the west like u do or your roots but Question is Why these western raised people go to Pakistan and IMPORT Husbands or wives for their wards? I'vent gotta a clue.

        Yet Farooq is not pointing out the fact that the majority of the Pakis here in UK are Cornershop (haven't u heard "Brimful of Asha") owners who themselves were never educated and don't even want their kids to be (same old 60s thinking still persists),
        who do everything when they are out n teache their kids that white women are WHORE and many more......
        Its beyond my comprehension that even after knowing that enormous differences in our cultures exists, they still are importing in spouses for their kids and natural failure is to be blame on a Pakistani guy, most of the time.

        Btw, Farooq if u call passing gcse, A-levels or working in a petrol p/p or living on a DOLE a STRUGGLE then I'm sorry its not.

        There are many like these in Pak. who are being frowned by the likes of you.
        Cheers,
        Kaleem

                  I noticed something, the topic was.. why do pakistanis have inferiority complexes etc, the whole uk-raised and paki-raised desi stuff started again

                  well now, I would not disagree that many Pakistanis raised abroad are quiet western in their ways, however ina differnet posting on this site, some people were asking why do, Pakistanis born n Raised in Pakistan, lose their upbringing and engage in all sorts of stuff once theya re in Uk or USA.

                  Umm again, and why is it that People in Pakistan who have spent like 3 months abroad for vacation in there life hafta speak urdu with such pain as if it was an eskimo tourist trying to learn basic urdu.

                  As far as the Impression that Uk/USA born pakistanis are ummm not so islamic. Isnt that quiet possible that the pakistanis in Pakistan dont have the freedom to do what they want, and that is why they go all out when they come here

                  Then again, how many serious islamic groups have young people's active participation in Pakistan vs Uk n USa

                  The comment that why do we call ourselves Pakistani when we are born in Uk and wer should call ourselves british? oh I do, i indeed call myself a brit.. but a pakistani-brit and its nuffin new, in USA u have strong communities of Italian-americans German-americands and Irish-americans, so we are not the only ppl who do that... Then again being born at a place does not give u the right to call yourself a native does it? case in point children of "mohajirs" who are still called "mohajirs" and not pakistanis cuz ppl keep askin em, u punjabi or baluchi

                  anyways. to each his own.

                  btw why is it that the only ppl who complain about lack of opportunities for ppl with brown skin in UK?USA are ppl who have either real bad educational background or those who went to really lame schools?

                  Never saw some ox-bridge desi or Ivy league desi crying :0 its always the Pakistani BA pass in economics who are crying that Uncle Sam or Gora Saab will not make them product manager of GE or BT any answers.

                  Best Regards

                    Well I would start off with the Inferiority issue. If you are judjing someone by their behaviour, there are two perspectives :
                    -that of the observer : you see it as an inferiority complex
                    -that of the subject : he/she "might" only be trying to mix up well with the culture.
                    Tell me one thing, why do we not notice the so called "inferiority complex" in people who have been born and raised outside Pakistan. It is only with those who are trying to make their mark from a zero within a society which has been alien to them for long. However there still are people who are proud of their heritage and who don't compromise their identity for a worldly objective. Take this for example, I know someone who on being offered a job at a firm, mainly managed by Jews, shortened their name to reflect a more western and even non-discriminatory from the point of religion so that they may have a better opportunity to excel. Contrary to this a peron named Muhammad also got employed by the firm. He does face difficulties when he comes across those breed who discriminate but is still surviving, and is totally opposed to going from Mohammad to Moe, as suggested to him by his superiors. I have seen many Bilals to Billy too, not for fun's sake but it is these people who seem to be ashamed of what they are!

                      Well...it is interesting to read views from both ends. A person being raised in west can hardly adjust with the one from desi land (oof wo paindoos...hum gora hota )and the desi (so called narrow minded & authority loving) guys lcan hardlly tolerate half nude pakistani kurries in a bar.

                      The question is how do we define Pakistanies. Well...I guess we don't have to...becasue some of us feel proud being called "Brit-Paki"
                      Isn't this ironic...doesn't this beat the whole purpose of the conversation...
                      If some Afghani in Peshawar calls him self I'm not Afghani but Paki-Afghani...well there goes the individuality, self esteem, traditions, culture and what not of Afghanistan.
                      African Americans are a good example of the disaster of rich African culture.

                      "Sup man! hey isn't rap Kool... yo! dem folks don't care bat no tradiitions...we gat our own **** goin on here"

                      Peace!

                        THEY ARE ALL PAKI STUDENTS .

                        WELL I CAN N'T TOLERATE HALF NUDE PAKI GALS IN PUBS EITHER AND THATS A GOOD ISSUE AND MAY BE WE CAN DISCUSS IT .I FIND IT REALLY ANNOYING WHEN YOU GO OUT TO SOME PUB OR PARTY AND SEE PAKI GALS BEHAVING IN AN INDECENT MANNER .
                        YEAH THAT'S A GOOD ISSUE AND I NEED COMMENTS FROM ALL OF YOU ABOUT IT . OBSERVING PARDAH IS SOEMTHING ELSE AND IF YOU DO N'T OBSERVE IT THATS NOT A VERY BIG PROBLEM BUT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SOME THING ESLE .WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT OR WHAT SHOULD BE DONE .?

                            Farouq:

                            In your post you said that Pakistani men are mysoginists. Do your believe that ALL of them are? How does it happen to them? Can one tell right away that they are? Most of the Pakistani men I have met have been extremely nice and deferential to me, so I guess I don't know how a mysoginist acts. With American men who hate women it is pretty easy to tell, but that is my culture.

                            I am thinking about marrying a Pakistani man and I am American. I think we face many of the same problems that Pakistani men marrying UK born Pakistanis wiell. I will always make more money than he, etc.

                            I wonder if most couples even talk about it before getting married? Does anyone have any advice on how to ameliorate the problems that you folks have addressed in this forum?

                            I wonder if any of you are old enough to even be married? It seems as those most folks here are mostly college aged, yes?


                            See ya!

                              Well...Fraudz...the last thing I wanted to hear from you was that there is yet another category of Pakistanies....

                              Well....if there are punjabi pakistanies, sindi pakistanies.... then we should be holding hands together and educating them about being ONE pakistanies rather than adding to the list. Ofcourse there are differences but they should not come in the way of unity and "identity".

                              Vision, i hope Mr pakistani is the right man for you A friend of mine just got engaged to an American girl in my university...and tell you what.... we spent hours talking about his future... plus the obvious differences or facts which exist.

                              Well.... we are human beings first and then come other significant details....If you think you guys possess good understanding and can cope with the society then I would call you the luckiest lady around. Good Luck!
