Dating an arab girl give me dating site
A man is even judged on how much gold he gives his bride at the wedding.Even though my bride-to-be’s family knew I had very little at the time, to many of her extended family I was regarded as someone of a much higher status for the simple fact that I was from a Western nation.
When you meet her father to request permission to see her right at the start, he’ll want to be confident that you can provide all this from the get-go.
I’m not sure how somebody else with no ties to an Arabic-speaking community could get around this.
He asked me questions about everything – particularly finances.
Today I’ve decided to share a few lessons with you that I learned from the whole experience. Some guys in the West still have the decency to talk to the girl’s father before asking her to marry him. In Egypt (and I suspect all over the Arab world) this is something that needs to be done right at the start when you start dating.
It should give you some idea of what’s usually expected in Egyptian society if you ever meet the man or woman of your dreams. I went on two ‘dates’ (by that I mean hanging out in populated areas getting to know each other) with this girl at which time she told me that I needed to meet her father and request his permission to continue seeing her.
I have Egyptian male friends whose fathers actually saved up for years to buy their sons an apartment (usually in the same building as their parents) to make it easier for them when they wanted to marry. Never say this to someone you don’t know for obvious reasons.
