I was five months pregnant with our son, and he kicked me in the stomach because he stayed out late one nightovernightand I questioned him for it. KATRINA: Yes, it was my fault that I made him beat me because I shouldnt have asked him. She had a good upbringing and became a Christian in her teens. Then one night at a club, Katrina met the man of her dreams.

' I thought the Middle East was somewhere in the middle of the country. SCOTT ROSS: So you didnt understand what you were doing? It was intriguing, the mystique of the whole thing. Her husband, Mohammed, strictly held to Muslim customs and demanded her obedience. Are you going to do what your Mom says the rest of your life, or are you going to go with the man of dreams? KATRINA: When I came out of the wedding ceremony, I saw that not only had my name been changed, but my religion had been changed also. SCOTT ROSS (reporting): It didnt take long for Katrina to realize this was not what she bargained for. KATRINA: I had compromised the deity of Jesus Christ. It is permissible for a Muslim man to marry a Christian/Jewish woman strictly under these two conditions: Why is marriage allowed in only one direction? Likewise you are permitted to marry chaste believing women [Muslims] or chaste women among the people who were given the Scripture [Jews and Christians] .

So this means that in seventh-century Arab culture a Muslim man may dominate his wife or wives, but not a Christian man who would dominate his Muslim wife.
