In the case of weddings, we had support from sponsors, most of them well-wishers, including my seamstress whom I gave money for fabrics. His suit was bought and sent down by an uncle of mine,” Xandy Kamel disclosed.
Her narrative suggests a lopsided financial responsibility and raises questions about the equality and partnership within their relationship. Xandy Kamel hinted that her extensive involvement in the wedding preparations might have been a factor in her ability to dissolve the marriage.
“I married him because I did everything about the marriage, and he only came in as a man I respected because a woman must at all means make it seem that the man is in charge,” Xandy Kamel suggested.
