KERNING CULTURES: HER SIDE OF THE STORY

Ghada and Ranyah don’t know each other, but their stories have a lot in common. When they each married their husbands, everybody around them assumed they’d live happily ever after. It didn’t turn out that way for either of them. They were both left to rebuild a new identity as single women in the Middle East, all while raising their family. In this episode, we hear their stories of journeying through divorce, and what came next.
