Many people have asked me what it’s like being an American woman married to an Arab man.
Some even ‘warned’ me before making the decision to get married.
I experience things in Kuwait I doubt many other Americans do… I wish I could say my life resembles every Westerner married to an Arab but I know that’s not the case.
Every situation is unique and some are better than others.
He treats everyone with dignity and respect, regardless of their nationality or employment ‘status’. Would I recommend every Western woman run out there and marry an Arab man? I simply encourage people to stand up for what you believe in.
Not only are they responsible for us financially, but also our emotional well-being.
After-all, it’s you who has to walk in those shoes.
I can say, with confidence, if you’re in a relationship which is questionable or causes you pain, run… Regardless of nationality, ethnicity, backgrounds, or culture.
He’s actually more Westernized than many ‘city’ Arabs I know.
His English is perfect, he’s been to America and fully understands our mentality, culture, and politics.
