Jordanian muslim dating australian girl
about myself, my plans and my intentions with the man’s daughter.It’d be an opportunity to make a verbal contract of sorts between the father and myself. Traditionally, this kind of over a bride-to-be is done with both peoples’ parents there and I suspect in a lot of areas (especially rural places) it’s almost like a business transaction.This carried the expectation that we intended to get married.I had to make a serious choice then and there, without even knowing this girl properly, about whether or not I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.Even in a country like Egypt where religion and family are number 1, possessions and status can still be a huge factor. You have to accept the fact that this is not about two – and this includes all the extended relatives as well.This was one of my biggest concerns while I was planning to get married to this girl – neither she nor her family spoke a word of English and my family are monolingual English speakers with no interest in foreign cultures or travel.Hearing about the cultural differences and challenges they face has really made me reflect a lot on what I learned from through my second language, Arabic.
This is not only for I didn’t have an apartment or a stable job at the time but this was only after I explained my short to mid-term plans in extreme detail.There were lots of questions about religion and family too.
