Each week I spend two grueling hours getting the Arabic language pounded into my head. So, about an hour before my Arabic lesson I do all the homework that was assigned to me and relearn the things that were stuffed into my head the previous week. Anyways, during my last Arabic class we somehow got on the topic of dating. Apparently there is no such thing in the Egyptian culture. You are either engaged, or you are acquaintances.

The thoughts of an American Muslim and mother of four raising her children in small town USA with her Egyptian husband. Being an American and married to an Egyptian was the best thing to every happen to me. I've always had an affection toward Arabic men but he is the best thing in the world. Im Christian, he's Muslim and a 'good muslim' with no problems on my religion or thoughts. We have brilliant debates about religion and politics, he is incredibly generous didn't change after marriage as so many people claim happens , when we found out we were pregnant with our first child, he was thrilled it was a girl vs. His family is still part of his daily life but they are an amazing group his dad is always trying to talk him into sending him viagra in Egypt!!
It's sad, it's complicated but true - avoid marrying Egyptians!
Marriage was the normal and most desirable state for Ancient Egyptians of both genders and all social classes. Athenian men evinced little respect or affection for women and delayed marriage until well into their thirties, but most Egyptian men were eager to follow the advice of the wisdom literature urging them to take a wife while still young so they could found a household and raise a family. Most men were married by the age of twenty to girls who might have been as young as fifteen.
Submitted by Nicole Australia , Jan 10, at Yes comments do have to be careful not to label "all" into one category - however given my own experiences of living over there and being married to an Egyptian, I can safely say that sadly it is the majority who lie, cheat and are abusive. The men can be extremely jealous and really do change character after marriage.
