This post is my little attempt at clearing up some of the misconceptions regarding the Arab/American marriages.

Men are actually responsible for a woman — very different than being superior.

Not only are they responsible for us financially, but also our emotional well-being.

If he knew something bothered me or caused me pain, he wouldn’t do it, that simple.

In the bedoin culture men are often viewed as superior to women (by outsiders), but it’s not that way.

I’m just so thankful, every day, that I married a man who is the perfect combination of East and West. We live in a very tribal area where Americans are almost never seen.

When we venture into the city or the malls no one even takes a second look.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.He doesn’t judge others and he understands why some people might ‘wonder’ about us. Don’t allow others decide who you should be with or how you should live your life.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.My husband has never asked me to cover my head, my face, hands, or feet.
