Worst case scenario handbook dating websites
He’s actually more Westernized than many ‘city’ Arabs I know.His English is perfect, he’s been to America and fully understands our mentality, culture, and politics.He treats everyone with dignity and respect, regardless of their nationality or employment ‘status’. Would I recommend every Western woman run out there and marry an Arab man? I simply encourage people to stand up for what you believe in.He doesn’t judge others and he understands why some people might ‘wonder’ about us. Don’t allow others decide who you should be with or how you should live your life.He can comfortably spend his Winter in a desert tent, cooking fresh meat over fahem, and brushing his teeth with a miswak. While I’m watching the Arab Ramadan shows, he’s fully invested in an episode of Daily Show or Colbert.There’s very little about him that fits into the stereotypical ‘bedoin’ mold.I’ve heard horror stories of cheating, abuse, and outright disrespect.But this takes place in marriages all over the world — it’s not exclusive to the Arab man. What I do find very interesting and even a bit odd at times are those who stare.
Before meeting my husband he was feeling the Arabian pressure of ‘marriage’.
In his culture men have an obligation to truly take care of their wives.
He’s responsible for all the bills and monthly obligations while providing me anything I want without hesitation — even if it means he goes without. My opinion matters and he always asks what I think or how I feel.
Family members were actively seeking out prospective wives to include cousins. They have very close family ties and rarely marry outside of their tribe. And someone he could see himself investing a lifetime in. Certainly I’m not someone his mother would have chosen for him, but she’s never made me feel that way. Perhaps they were just relieved he was finally getting married?
My husband made clear he wasn’t interested in an arranged marriage, but instead wanted to marry someone he chose. 🙂 Either way, this spoiled, only child now has a huge family who I love and cherish.
