“The cultural differences between her and Wissam became even more obvious [after Eissa arrived]. They come from very different worlds.”The source said. “For years, Janet tried to adapt to his culture. Since it’s not a culture she grew up with, it’s been challenging for her. She often felt she disappointed Wissam.”
