Whatever Haya knew about Mo going into the marriage doesn't justify his treatment of her or justify his actions towards other women in his family. Women shouldn't be blamed for the evil things that men choose to do.
What's striking about Haya's case is that even influential, savvy and well connected women can end up in toxic relationships. Abuse, cruelty and misogyny cut across class, income and cultural divides. It took real courage for Haya to escape from her marriage and to keep her children safe, and in doing so she brought much needed international attention back to Mo's actions against his daughters, Shamsa and Latifa.
and i applaudy her for fighting her way out and for her children well being..
However i do think her story should be an example to not rush into a relationship marriage ignoring some signs or family and friends warnings or advices ecpecially when the partner is notorious or at least don't bring innocent child to the mixte because he is the one whos the most affected. Especially when the mariage/relationship is not a love matter.
