My husband has never asked me to cover my head, my face, hands, or feet.
He’s never treated me as anything less than his equal other than when it involves finances.
But he also embraces the more positive things about the bedoin culture, such as how women should be treated.
Unfortunately there are a lot of misconceptions about how bedoin men treat their wives, and until you’re married to one, I suggest you don’t assume.
Our American girls are from all over the United States, including South Carolina, California, Las Vegas, New York and everywhere on the map.
we've created this space in order to invite you, through our webcam, a few moments of initimity in our life of every days, since our living room or our kitchen, in our bathroom or our bedroom.
Men are actually responsible for a woman — very different than being superior.
Not only are they responsible for us financially, but also our emotional well-being.
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.
But out of respect for one another we ensure the other is always comfortable.
I was spoiled, wanted for nothing, and had everything. Then I married a man whose immediate family consists of 24 people. Family gatherings take place as often as daily since the entire family lives in very close proximity to one another.
Before meeting my husband he was feeling the Arabian pressure of ‘marriage’.
This post is my little attempt at clearing up some of the misconceptions regarding the Arab/American marriages.
