Dating a muslim guy
Anyway he did mention to me that if his family says no that we can no longer date.
Their word is law, and I was aware of this because I am educated and have been doing additional research on Islam and his cultural background.
As a Muslim girl, I’ve been raised to not ask or expect.
I’ve been raised to keep my disappointments to myself.
Like I mentioned earlier he said he loved me and wants a future with me, etc.
I feel that we have a lot in common, and I am quickly falling for him.
When you cross the threshold of their home, you’re an honored guest.
He told me that he wanted to tell his family about me (they are still in the Middle East).
He is currently back home with his family for a vacation, and he said before he left that he was planning on telling them about me.
Having tried the ‘marriage experiment’ once, I know that religion doesn’t play a role in the day-to-day, but culture definitely does. It’s not about whether the guy opens the door for you or whether he picks up the tab at dinner.
It’s about whether he even cares that you might hungry — or is he on a fast track to gratify his own needs?
