Initial stage dating a muslim man
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.
Today it is more than 50 years later, and their friendship has endured time and distance.Although living close to each other they had not met before running into each other on this day on the road leading up the hill to their neighborhood.Both seemed quite determined to assert themselves that day, and soon they began pushing each other that gradually turned to wrestling, and attempts to dominate.I find myself in a hard situation with a Muslim man I love.I write because I don’t have resources within the Muslim community and would love that perspective.I am not a Muslim woman though I have much respect for the faith.
For the past 9 months or so I have been dating a dear man from Libya who is here for school on a scholarship.
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.
But he also embraces the more positive things about the bedoin culture, such as how women should be treated.
Unfortunately there are a lot of misconceptions about how bedoin men treat their wives, and until you’re married to one, I suggest you don’t assume.
Many people have asked me what it’s like being an American woman married to an Arab man.
