It’s normal to have your ideal type of man or woman when it comes to finding a life partner.
However, it appears that there has been a worrying trend among some men in Malaysia who prefer either women who are either taken, divorced or widowed because they are or have been with someone.
The matter was brought to light by Twitter user @iamajayrahman who expressed his disgust over the trend. In a Twitter post, he shared a screenshot of the unknown TikTok video of men commenting how they prefer prefer taken, divorced or widowed women in comparison to a woman who has never been with anyone.
Haritu pemburu suami orang, kalini pemburu isteri orang pulak. Rosak society kita! 🤦🏻♂️ pic.twitter.com/8M7PAnyUgB— 𝒜𝒷𝑒 𝒿 (@iamajayrahman) May 10, 2022
“Last time, it was about women who hunt for people’s husbands, now it’s about men hunting people’s wives. Our society is sick!” he wrote in the tweet.
The tweet has since gone viral and garnered over 1,200 retweets and 1,800 likes.
In the comment section, netizens criticised those who desire such women and call them out for being a homewrecker who care not about their sins.
“I hope that their wives get bothered by other men so that you will then realise how it feels,” a netizen said.
“How do you even desire other people’s wives. Don’t you know shame or respect,” another user commented.
Meanwhile, a netizen pointed out that one possible reason that men desired taken women is that they want only pleasure but not responsibility. “If anything were to happen, the woman still has her husband.” said the netizen.
Lelaki mencari isteri org sbb nak sedap tp tak nak bertggjwb. Kalau jd pape, laki dia ada. Isteri org yg melayan pulak rasa tak perlu risau apa. Kalau pregnant, laki sendiri ada. https://t.co/3RRGZy2GZi— Delina Meliora (@DelinaMeliora) May 10, 2022
Another netizen then suggested that why such men fantasise such women is because of the influence of pornographic videos. “It’s weird and you might think that it’s just a joke but if you ever come across Malay porn, you’ll notice it.”
“It’s sad to see how much widows are degraded like this. They should be respected even more as they have to struggle the most,” the netizen said.
