It is not even the same as in other Arab countries. Please tell me if you are just talking about your relationship or the culture in general.He talked about marriage immediately as he advised ıt would be necessary if we wanted to be together in Morocco , he made it quite clear that he didn't really want to leave his country and as salaries were so little we would need to have our own business ıe small hotel or restaurant etc if we wanted to have good life style , so we viewed many properties etc for commercial and residential purposes...you would think if someone was offering a "business partnership " that they would have substantial amount of money to contribute , but not in this case !!!I agreed to look into the prospect of marriage and that meant I should be introduced to the family(I was now termed as his chosen one ) , family seemed to be very nice , his mother never failed to mention marriage and on one occasion thrust a dress into my hands ..
*Good men and bad men exist in every race and religion.* This is true.
It started as a few stares here and there when we would go to visit Morocco, but when we befriended many Moroccans it became obvious that there was something else there.
Out of a handful of 10 couples all of the men had married an American woman first, and only my husband and one other were still married to that woman.
Let’s not forget that we are part of a cultural heritage that is rich with diversity, tradition, and above all, a culture that considers itself wiser for its outreach to the outside world with its multidimensional influences I strongly lament the abundance of all the unconstructive criticism leveled at the author.
