Egyptian girl chat dating
And no, I’m not talking about killing her in a metaphorical sense. But just because it’s forbidden doesn’t mean that it’s not going to happen. I was shocked when the half-German half-Egyptian cousin of my friend told me everything about the local dating and marriage culture.
But she knows that her parents would kill her if she did it.
Although Islamic traditions often allow for the marriage to take place provided the man converts to Islam, Nouran says her family would not give her consent.
“When I ask why it is forbidden from a rational point of view, they tell me it’s because of the conflicts I will face when marrying a man with a different religion.
“They say they do not accept it because the children follow the dad’s religion,” she explains.
Good-looking from a respectable family, and a qualified medical doctor, she should have had no problem finding a fiancé.
Her father has met with around 40 young men over the years who have visited Amira’s family home to discuss marrying her, but so far, nothing has come of it. “I never have enough time to get to know them.” Under her father’s strict rules, she is able to have no more than two meetings with a potential suitor, all in the company of her family, and asked to make a decision shortly after. In Egypt, where life revolves around marriage, premarital sex remains fiercely taboo and the word for an unmarried woman, is a malicious insult – it’s the reason why, for this story, Amira is using a fake name.
But learning about the local dating culture opened my eyes to a new world… The parents ask the love-drunk American sweetheart if she wants to marry her son. You absolutely have to If the answer is yes, you’ll have a hard time convincing her parents that you’re the right man for their daughter. You have to answer all their questions and if they allow it, you can date her.
But Egyptian fathers are not so proud when their daughter wants to marry a man from another country…let alone a Western country. Just imagine if they or someone they know sees you walking around with another woman. In fact, you can meet thousands of Egyptian singles on this site. Don’t take her on a date before you ask her parents for permission.
