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.
Many people have asked me what it’s like being an American woman married to an Arab man.
Some even ‘warned’ me before making the decision to get married.
But out of respect for one another we ensure the other is always comfortable.After-all, it’s you who has to walk in those shoes.I can say, with confidence, if you’re in a relationship which is questionable or causes you pain, run… Regardless of nationality, ethnicity, backgrounds, or culture.He’s actually more Westernized than many ‘city’ Arabs I know.His English is perfect, he’s been to America and fully understands our mentality, culture, and politics.
