    “seriously his last name is chao…”

    –Uhhh…Yeah. I kinda’ know that…I am sitting right next to him at the moment. LOL

    Furthermore, he took my parking space today! Arrggggghhhh! As soon as I go to park my car…I see the “Sheikh’s” plum colored Maxima.

    “Anyways better start listening…”

    –I’ve been listening to him all day. He’s been cracking jokes for nearly an hour.

    –for cryin’ out loud….he was SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO ME AND THEN LAUGHED LOUDLY AS I WROTE MY COMMENT. He also found your original observation a bit peculiar. I would give you his cell# so you could verify…but I would probably get beat up for doing that. :)

    As an investigative reporter for MM, I actually took a trip down to Maryland in order to get to the bottom of this story.

    I am happy to confirm that abu Ameerah and Sh. Chao are indeed two separate entities, conjoined only in spirit, but not in body. Indeed, one with Pakistani heritage and the other with King Kong, err. Hong Kong heritage look quite different. Of course it is difficult to separate them once they get talking, especially over succulent kabobs and hummus… but ultimately they are two in body, even if one in brotherhood.

    Indeed, Abu Ameerah reported this great occasion in flowery words on his blog here.

    I hope to see the brothers again inshallah.

In answering this question, one has the choice to take on their marriage with all its challenges or look realistically at divorce. There is dignity in making it work, and there is dignity in starting fresh for the right reasons.

How can we weigh the pros and cons of each of these choices? How soon should we sound the alarm and seek help? What do we do after picking one option or the other?

Haleh Banani holds a Master’s Degree in clinical psychology, and this TDC her session is dedicated to the factors one should take in making this choice.
