Dating egyptian girls mary katherine ham dating
Photos were handed around of the bruises my brother in law had inflicted on his wife. I was expected to be on his side (blood sticks together). He wasn't game to do this once we moved to Australia. His parents were home at the time, and allowed this to happen.
) In Egypt men get away with a lot, most "incidents" are brushed under the carpet and forgiven.
For a woman to do anything remotely similar is it almost punishable by death! In the beginning of our marriage my husband often told me he had to right to kill me if I ever cheated on him.
The relationship cannot ever be the same - you are no longer girlfriend/boyfriend... Westerners are considered very loose and un-trustable.
Egyptian men will spend hours upon hours discussing this with pure disgust...
Submitted by Nicole (Australia), Jan 10, 2015 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.
My husband was the most relaxed, easy-going, liberal and damn nice guy when i met him in Dubai. We often went out drinking and had so much FUN together in general. Adventurous, attentive, romantic, smart, confident and supportive. Sports exist but the general population doesn't participate. I generally dressed covered up, but there were a few comments here and there "you're not wearing THAT are you? He became severely jealous after seeing a hello and congrats on my marriage text from an ex boyfriend. The rules on relationships very much change once you are married along with what you can do, and who you can spend time with.
when in fact that is exactly what they are doing themselves in their own lives!! Even when explained directly to my husbands face, he didn't get that me texting friend was harmless and him going out and sleeping around was cheating!!!(because i got text 5 years ago from an ex - it was my fault he felt unloved and therefore slept around!!Marriage had been brought up many times by himself from after about 3 months into our relationship. His family at first were against our marriage, but once they met me, changed their minds and were very accepting. Driving around in cars for hours - laughing drinking and or smoking pot with loud music blaring. In Egypt they don't get the chance to - they mostly have arranged marriages and it's very quick. (Even though you are the same couple - and they no doubt instigated the sex!! It took me a very long time to try and get my head around this.How a man behaves with a girlfriend who is inevitably a westerner - as Egyptian girls are generally not allowed to have boyfriends - changes drastically to when he is married. You are no longer the girlfriend but the "wife" - your importance is 10 fold, but so are the expectations on behaviour. Friends of the female are treated with much distrust - particularly if they are westerners and/or unmarried.As i knew i never had any intention to - I just ignored those comments. This was because one of the male teachers at the school where I was teaching sent a "Happy Valentines" message which said only that - to all of the staff.
