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.Results are presented for three areas: The results from the three areas are combined into a total score for a country (from 0 for best to 100 for worst) and countries are rated as "free" (0 to 30), "partly free" (31 to 60), or "not free" (61 to 100) based on the totals.
I dont want to turn this into a religious debate and im not here to preach Islam so ill move on.. doing this helps u to know more about his character. If there is something causing friction between you and he can fix it .. Sometimes an egyptian man can be stubborn and awkward and this will show through..Submitted by Layla (Ireland), Apr 25, 2013 at Hello i decided to post as a back up for Nourshehane's Questions. im sure we have all lightly tapped our best buddys or our spouses, this is the light tap i mean.. Engagement, for PRACTICING muslims, is a time where couples get to know each other. He shouldnt treat you any different, even if you are western and he knows western women are more open, he will see you as he sees women by his cultural standards and he will instinctively want to protect you from bad judgement of others. If he says that he doesnt care about this, he is not a practicing Muslim, and you should not judge him by the religious virtue he claims to have. It is true that he will be a little weird about letting you, but let me put some perspective on this for you. Men with multiple mail addresses hang themselves eventually.. This is normal as there are a lot of stereotypes about the western culture also. Personally, i feel that a family having reservations about someone from a diff culture is a normal reaction, as my family had reservations about him too at the start. There is no man in egypt who wud take a wife twice his age. I Just want you to have the savvy to know the difference. If you are going to be sucked in, give yourself a chance !!Her Questions are indeed questions you should consider.. My plane tickets and expenses were all paid for when i travelled to Egypt. it can be quite common for engagements to be broken. Engagement in the west is like a promise, you are nearly sure you would marry, in Egypt it is like an good intention only. He will offer you a dowry or it is perfectly plausible for you to ask for one. Pretend you are ignorant about the fact its a shame.. You are his responsibility when you are in Egypt, and for a foreign woman walking around on her own, it can be quite weird.. Sometimes when an egyptian man wont let you out alone, he will be in protective mode. You will b in foreign country not knowing your way around, the traffic, language and the mentality of people etc You may go into a shop for example and be seriously overcharged.. In saying that, if you want to go out, he will go with you, he wont say no to actually going out.,he will just be weird about you going out alone. If you have a user name for skype or msn, for example [email protected], try the same user name on a yahoo mail .. I think that its a good sign because it means that everything is serious!!! I promise you, they will love you if you are honest. Get urself sucked in under the right conditions lol . All the above applies in determining his character and are not stereotypes..Since the introduction of the internet in 1993, the Egyptian government has invested in internet infrastructure as part of its strategy to boost the economy and create job opportunities.The Telecommunication Act was passed in 2003 to liberalize the private sector while keeping government supervision and control over information and communication technologies (ICTs) in place.When i say he will pay i mean he will pay ALL your expenses ALLLLLLLLLLLLL.. I know i will face crap over saying this for sure.. He will come to your country to visit you or should at least try.. you can regard me as nuts all you wish hahahaha there is an app that actually works on the internet.. You type in a yahoo mail address and see if he is online chatting on the yahoo messanger application. if u normally talk on msn or skype for example, you can always say ur msn wont open and ask him if he has got yahoo !! if you have had no interaction with them forget the man !!
