I am not here to judge anyones situation tell you mine.. IF he has asked you for money , forget him An honourable Egyptian man,will never ask a woman for money. From his ego point of view, he would fear others thinking him worthless having to scrounge off his wife etc They fancy themselves as providers, with the ability to take care of his wife and family. When we were living apart, he gave me an ATM card on his current account to access funds. Sometimes when you use toilets in Egypt there are attendants working on tips basis. but the disciplinary action in Islam is extremely light.. Lets touch upon sexual relations and discuss realistically.. he wont approach an egyptian woman for marriage without money, and a good job etc . Egyptian men are notoriously protective of women, When on the street, he will walk on the traffic side. IF you met him online, chances are he could be sweet talking another woman at the same time hahahah. You will probably think im a bit nuts after giving you the following tips but i dont care. There was an open and honest discussion and i was always kept in the loop. Honesty is not a common trait in Egypt so it is appreciated and respected. Realistically speaking, no one can really make a judgement on your egyptian man, because they dont know him.. I have given u facts.nourshehanes questions absolutely have to be considered.. Note: Opinions expressed in comments are those of the authors alone and not necessarily those of Daniel Pipes. Comments are screened and in some cases edited before posting.From a religious point of view, he is not allowed to ask his wife for money. I had my own money but this was irrelevant, he gave me an allowance for myself every month. You will be even given a few egyptian pounds for the tip for the attendant. Im sure it happens as it does in the west but mark my words, you are not allowed to beat the crap out of her or even slap her face. so he shouldnt approach you without meeting this criteria either. If it makes you a little more knowledgable about the character of the man ur dealing with.. Be aware, family are hugely involved in each others lives in egypt. NO one here can tell you whether he is fake or genuine. Reasoned disagreement is welcome but not comments that are scurrilous, off-topic, commercial, disparaging religions, or otherwise inappropriate.You know by now that no one is safe from Cairo Scene. A man knows what he wants and goes after it no matter what and is strong minded and ambitious, with his career being the priority in his early twenties.
Once you stop, you’ve taken the problem to a whole new level that will definitely lead to unpleasant consequences.
An Egyptian man is an extreme bad ass and does not need to worry about such frivolities.
What’s more important is which club he will go to with his girlfriend that night and which he will go to by himself. A man will look for a woman who is intelligent, independent, caring and someone who will challenge him to be better.
Only a tap is allowed and this was referenced in the Quran, purely so there would be no injustice and because the Quran references every subject.sensitive ones. Engagement in Egypt is not like engagement in the west. Kissing is not allowed either, but sometimes there are small moments of weaknesses and it does happen even with Arab women ( i know this as fact), but it will be a small peck, not a passionate kiss and it will be stolen quickly. I hope you understand what im trying to get across here. Ive seen some posts about women not being allowed to go out when they are in Egypt . They are a normal family and as a normal family, they had concerns in the beginning when my husband informed them that he was going to approach me for marriage. For example i gave up alcohol and pork, and he will take part in the non religious aspect of christmas with my family ( the dinner etc) and i put up a tree..
It can be normal for a Muslim man to approach a woman for marriage quite quickly by way of engagement.. Sex is a huge deal in Egypt, and it will be in his mentality to be terrified to do anything wrong, not only relgiously, but to a woman. I love my husbands mother and father and i would die if anything happened to them and i really feel loved by them. Although Mohammed married an older woman, and it can be considered sunnah.. Through all his stubbornness and awkwardness, you will be his everything as with anyone who is in love, if he feels he would lose you, he would panic.. You WILL have to make changes if you want to be married and so will he.
