Information on dating a man from morocco
Moroccans are known for their hospitality, their openness and understanding, their tolerance and virtues.Moroccan women however are not known for their love of foreign women who marry Moroccan men.
A little deeper is the sharing of a room in a home, or a meal.Many have given up the free stroll of the streets and boulevards because of the countless barrages of cruel, obsessive and demeaning pick-up lines by sexually obsessed suitors of all ages and walks of life.What other issues were raised in the article that would cause such an outrage among conservative reactionaries?This concept however I don’t feel is a product of Morocco specifically but surely exists in many other countries and cultures.It is the ever present glare of women who have decided that you have stolen one of “theirs.” I’m not so narcissistic as to think there is something special about me, because there’s not however I have overheard and been party to the complaints, stares and cajoles of Moroccan women unhappy with my marriage as well as those who have no problem letting me know that I am the starter wife.Even if I speak perfect Darija, am a Muslim and do stay with my husband I will always be an outsider and the inner sanctum that Moroccan women inhabit will forever elude me as an outsider.
Moroccans are generous, hospitable, open armed and tolerant of others, but that is a layered reality.
On the “Perks of dating a Moroccan man” Katrina Bushko’s article that enflamed and enraged some to the point of declaring it blasphemous, I’d like to simply state that the unwarranted assault is not only on free speech, but on the very foundation of why Moroccans often feel misunderstood as a culture when they try to respond to stereotypes or misconceptions about their so ‘untouchable’ culture.
Unless weak and otherwise short sighted, there should be a sense of dignified pride in the Moroccan culture with its beauty and its not so glaring realities.
Further yet is a marriage to a non-Moroccan and even children with them.
Deeper is full acceptance into a household and a culture, the final step, and one I dare say simply isn’t done-no matter what the circumstance.
In hushed tones with upturned noses…“shhhh shoofi shoofi lala americania….” There are sides to Moroccan culture and relationships that I love, the ones that encourage family values, stability, longevity and togetherness.
