Some even ‘warned’ me before making the decision to get married.This post is my little attempt at clearing up some of the misconceptions regarding the Arab/American marriages.
They accept I need a fork to eat my meals and they’ve always accommodated me without making me feel awkward.
My husband is very out-going and friendly to everyone.
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’s responsible for all the bills and monthly obligations while providing me anything I want without hesitation — even if it means he goes without. My opinion matters and he always asks what I think or how I feel.
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.
