Saeed Abedini's Wife, Naghmeh Now Says Saeed Has Physically and Sexually Abused Her And Was Into Pornography
For the past three years Naghmeh Abedini has publicly battled her husband’s captors, advocating for his release from an Iranian jail.
In two emails to supporters, Abedini revealed details of her troubled marriage to Saeed Abedini, an American citizen and pastor imprisoned in Iran since September 2012.
Those troubles include “physical, emotional, psychological, and sexual abuse (through Saeed’s addiction to pornography),” she wrote. The abuse started early in their marriage and has worsened during Saeed’s imprisonment, she said. The two are able to speak by phone and Skype.
Nothing about their story has sat right with me for years. Maybe this is why. But even this story is suspect to me.
Why is she saying this now? What spurred her on to suddenly say this? I've learned that timing is everything.
Why would a wife who is continually abused, keep meeting with her abuser even when he's behind bars in Iran?
Why does she call him "a treasure" when clearly he isn't?
Why keep fighting for his release and pawning him off as a pastor and a Christian when, if this is true, he is neither? Remember, he's disqualified, plus according to his wife he's continued the abuse. This was dishonest on her part.
