They accept I need a fork to eat my meals and they’ve always accommodated me without making me feel awkward.
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.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.Men are actually responsible for a woman — very different than being superior.
Not only are they responsible for us financially, but also our emotional well-being.My husband has never asked me to cover my head, my face, hands, or feet.He’s never treated me as anything less than his equal other than when it involves finances.For a woman to shed a tear and a man be the cause is shameful. Large family gatherings happened once a year during family reunion time and even that came to an abrupt halt when my grandparents died.Fortunately my husband does fit comfortably into this part of the culture he appears to have left so far behind. The typical Southern Belle raised as an only child in America. I never had to share anything with anyone — even my space.Having a husband like this has taught me to want very little as it’s far more important to me that he lives a stress free life and never goes without anything. I don’t have to ask his ‘permission’ to do anything, nor does he ask mine.
