He may have often been raised in such a pure society where trusting everyone is given no thought and then he lands in America and he realizes that trust level just does not exist even with his Arab buddies. His friends will strongly discourage him marrying you, especially if you have children from a previous marriage.
A pious Muslim man will know that if he marries an American and helps to raise your kids that it is a great blessing.
Take control of your destiny and find the right match at Arab Lounge.
Arab is an online community where Arabic women and men meet for friendship and/or romance.
Many people have asked me what it’s like being an American woman married to an Arab man.

I have been reading your blog and it makes me feel like I'm doing the right thing for me, but how do I stop feeling embarrassed, and ashamed for being with a wonderful man who loves me from the top of my afro to the bottom of my feet? I am honoured to hear from you and I pray that you stay strong.
To answer your question about how to stop being embarrassed, let me say that when you hold firmly in your heart that you are doing the best thing for you and you are with a man who cares about you as it ought to be, then over time, the need to 'please your community in your relationship' will fade.
My name is Miriam Harper and I am currently in Iraq. I find that in the military there are very many IR relationships.
So many people from all different areas and races get together because it's hard to find someone that relates to the type of lifestyle that you have being in the military.
The problem lies with these American women are not Muslim and do not know how to differentiate between a pious good Muslim husband prospect and a bad prospect.
