Hi Everyone, I live in America, I m a professor at a major college in the states. Love to hear from American women from all over and there views, thoughts, any input on egyptian men. I am from America married to Egyptian man for 10 yrs happily. I want my children to have more opportunites in life and freedom I want them to enjoy so much I took for granted without being spoiled. Jenna, I have been dating an Egyptian guy for a little while and he's amazing.
I visit my relatives in Egypt in the summer most of the time. My man loves me so much he is willing to take us all back accross the vast oceans but I hate to do this to him.this hurts.cultures are so different and who knew in the beginning we would end up here or that he would rather the children grow up here?! Our love is so strong I hope it endures but I do not see my future here even if it where he wants to be.
received message: I am a foreigner male living in Egypt.
Egyptian men overall are quite wonderful and I personally know many men here who would be great and ethical husbands to foreign women.
He may have often been raised in such a pure society where trusting everyone is given no thought and then he lands in America and he realizes that trust level just does not exist even with his Arab buddies. His friends will strongly discourage him marrying you, especially if you have children from a previous marriage.
A pious Muslim man will know that if he marries an American and helps to raise your kids that it is a great blessing.
Also, I'm scared of these stories about kidnapping and domineering Arab men and what not. I miss the comforts, so many choices at my fingertips and sights of home and even though I do not condone every darn US lifestyle I miss it!
That every Muslim around you will suspect he married you for a Green Card and even if they smile in your face they will think this automatically. wifes for the worst and some woman who are just loving life here w/no problems. Culture differences are a larger part of my marriage then I ever anticipated. Even in US meddling families can hinder a lovely relationship! I know of some men who have changed drastically upon moving here with their Am.The problem lies with these American women are not Muslim and do not know how to differentiate between a pious good Muslim husband prospect and a bad prospect.In general everything that is normal to them in America like dating, sex outside of marriage, partying, drinking alcohol, mixing with the opposite sex- is wide spread normal American life, yet they do know how this is really a lethal mix. One Arab stated, “100% of American women are bad.” It is important to realize that your future Arab/Muslim husband has notions about American women that they cannot be trusted for the life of them.
