I appreciate all your opinions. I would just add a small comments on hsimone's

hsimone, you See the child is not only her's but also her ex-husband's. Why must she report her ex even after being advised that it was her clan's decision to forgive the offending family? This shows no respect to her clan's decision.
It is not good to despise your people's opinions.
Because her child was hurt. First, he took his son to his wedding without informing the mother, where they went ahead to shoot indiscriminately, injuring the boy. She didn't go on a rampage, she just reported the matter. If it was such a non-issue, it should not have been made such a case. The problem was they felt a woman should have no say on her child's life, and that is an outrage.
I think you have a right to an opinion and I'm not trying to negate your point, but I just differ from yours and I hope you see where I'm coming from.

I think Nadia did the right thing, the world is not ruled by men, and women and men have the same rights, if someone gets hurt, especially with a gunshot, must be reported, we cannot support a corrupt society.

A woman can be strong, whether single or not. There are also some single women who are meek. It depends on the person's character and experiences in life. Some people just toughen up as they go through more trials in life.

It's not a matter of single mothers being tough headed. I think it's the strong hatred they usually develop once they file for a divorce. Then I'm left wondering where the initial love went to.
Single mothers are tough headed.
I just can't get over this.

I find no fault in what Nadia did. I don't think we can generalize any group of people in any way, single women included. I think everyone should stand up for themselves and fight for what is right. That's exactly what Nadia did! She was polite and kind, but when neither her boss nor her relatives heeded her, she fought for her right. Hat's off to you, Nadia! I'm sure you're an inspiration to many!!!
I agree with you that we cannot generalize any group based on the character of one individual. That would be detrimental.

I think in Nadia's case she had to be tough because of the sexist culture of her ex-husband's country, but I don't think most single women are any tougher than married women. Just my opinion. :cry:

Single women have a lot of stigmas against them, such as being too overbearing or bossy. It's better to be independent than to be a pushover. Nadia's motivations were for her son's benefit, especially since he was a big fan of Adele. As for her reporting the actions of her ex, it wasn't the fact the action was not a good decision, it was more dangerous than anything. At least here we can serve our exes with papers to keep them away.

Nadia was my favorite character in this book. I felt like I was right beside her as she went through all this stuff because of her ex husband. She was strong throughout, doing what was best for her and her son.

Single mothers are not tough headed. Nadia wasn't tough headed. She did all she did for her son. Which mother wouldn't do that for her dear child? Nadia's ex-husband tried severally getting back to Nadia using the son but she was strong. She conquered it all.
