American women dating egyptian men
I do believe it is possible for a non-Muslim and a Muslim to be together.
" "Mike", my driver in Luxor, leaned forward and gazed sincerely in my eyes. They have sex for two minutes, just to relieve themselves, and the women lie like boards. From the beginning it has been clear that there are obstacles to our being together and we kept it very casual and light, but in the past few months we have become much, much closer and he expressed his love for me, and now I have allowed myself to love him very dearly also.However, what just happened a couple hours ago brought our true situation very present to me.I am a secret to almost everyone he knows, and when he took me out to lunch at his favorite café he asked me not to hug him when I arrived, just shake hands.I understand why, I really do, but personally as a woman of 41 years old that still wants to have children, am I kidding myself to think that he might eventually come around or that it could even work at all?I find myself in a hard situation with a Muslim man I love.
I write because I don’t have resources within the Muslim community and would love that perspective.
At the time, I hated to hear this advice because I was that guy—the Muslim in a relationship with a non-Muslim girl that few of my friends knew about.
I rationalized this by telling myself we come from different cultural and religious backgrounds that I was not doing this to hurt her.
He can’t or won’t be the husband and father that you seek, and it doesn’t matter if his reasons are due to culture, religion, or other things.
All you need to know is that this relationship can’t give you what you want, and it will take from you more than it gives.
I know the religious and cultural tenants can be very serious and I want to see this situation clearly.
