At the beginning of our marriage, our expenses were paid from income derived from articles submitted by Majīd, as well as by his teaching stipend. I had an undergraduate degree and I remember that I had begun working at Amīr Kabīr University on a salary of 13,500 Toumans a month. At times I would spend my own salary on household needs. But despite all this, I saw myself as living at the height of honor and respect (ezzat) throughout all of those years. I’m not sure how to put this, I felt that when my family visited me there, they felt proud of me. This man had enriched my life. The values that were important to me were his love and kindness, solidarity [and commitment in marriage], sincerity, and piety; and Majīd had all of these in spades.
