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.
“I don’t want to get married to a foreigner because I want a liberal person; there are tons of Egyptian liberal men, that’s not the point for me.
I just think that the type of mentality I reached is not compatible with Egyptian guys,” says Nouran, as she recalls hundreds of conversations with her foreign male friends where spirituality, energies, aura, and the power of nature took center stage.
Her travels had not only opened her horizons, but given her the chance to encounter men whose hearts felt close to her.
Nouran was convinced that she could find a lifelong partner away from Egypt, but she knew she would never be allowed to by her family.
Yet, despite this, Saleh noticed many of his friends and relatives unable to tie the knot in recent years.
“It’s become the biggest struggle in Egypt,” he says.
Despite not being extremely conservative, Nouran’s parents do not approve of her marrying a foreign man. The last thing the parents of your future wife want to see is you walking around with another woman. It’s sad because many Egyptian brides are desperate to find a husband from abroad.
