Lately, and because of the increasing number of divorces, custody issues, and domestic violence cases, some countries warn their women from Egyptian men.Yes, they tell them clearly not to get emotionally involved or legally committed to an Egyptian man! I got it first hand from a European woman who is living in Egypt, was married to an Egyptian man, has a son, and is currently divorced.I was more than curious to know what could go wrong with such a compatible intercultural union. His family did not attend but this was natural in my country; we were two responsible adults and we were in charge of our life-altering decisions.After marriage, he began changing; suddenly he had hurtful comments about my wardrobe, more hurtful comments about my public demeanor, and … He told me that he loved me but suddenly his love began suffocating me. I asked Sandy about the frequency and the intensity of the jealousy fits and the violence attacks and she told me that it became on daily basis; “the tender loving caring man that I fell in love with disappeared.I translated his proposal as the epitome of love and I gladly accepted.”I listened to Sandy and I knew exactly how she felt when she first met “her hero”.I know how it feels to jump in a jar of honey thinking of how sweet it would taste and how rich and overwhelming it would feel, only to get your hair tangled in its stickiness and eventually you drown in its suffocating viscosity.
Naturally, most warnings address safety and security issues, and some warnings dedicate a section or two to hygiene and harassment.He had the looks, the manners, the class, the charm, and the money.He was so open-minded and understanding – I have never met anyone who was as perfect.” Sandy corrected me.His mother hated how I dressed no matter how modest.All my attempts at communication failed but I was heads over heels in love with him to read the warning signs.
