Example text

Hamad used to work as a messenger in Kafr alShaykh Bus Company, however after winning the elections he resigned from his job. During the period in which Hamad occupied political posts in the village, his economic resources increased and his standard of living improved greatly which upgraded him from the middle to the upper-class. Currently, he owns five feddans and has five buffalos, three cows, and one donkey. Furthermore, he built a new concrete house for himself and his 30 second wife. Hamad's upward economic and social mobility can easily be deduced from the fact that he separated his wives in two different houses which was one of the upper-class residential patterns of polygynous families in the village.

When all her children had grown up and her son got married and lived with them in the same house, she felt safe enough to tell her husband that she could not have sexual relationship with him. Ahmed agreed to take another wife and he asked Kamilia to choose the one she felt comfortable to live with. Polygyny for sexual reasons among upper-class families applied only to one couple which was Saleh and his wife Zeinab. Zeinab stated that her husband took a second wife when she herself was pregnant for the fourth time.

By that, she meant that they all lived together and that her father-in-law controlled household resources and their allocation. Food was cooked for the whole extended family and her fatherin-law was the one to decide the expenditure of every piaster in the household according to his priorities. Problems, however, occurred between the educated sisters-in-law (wives of educated sons), on one side, and the uneducated ones (wives of uneducated sons) on the other. The latter thought that it was unfair for them to stay in the house all day and cook, clean the floor, and wash the clothes of the entire extended family while their sistersin-law came from work to find everything ready for them.
