One of the most often read and commented posts on my website is about assumptions people make when you tell them you married an Arab. I tend to let the comments section just roll as people share their own stories and experiences. Some are good, some are bad. I am really blessed that my husband and my marriage has largely defied those stereotypes. I know many other women and men whose relationships also defy them. I know yet others whose relationships fit the stereotype. These are essentially the two most important things that happen in Moroccan life.
Both men and women see marriage as a very important life milestone and aside from a select few, having children is a strong desire. In some cases this works out, and not having children does not become an issue however more often than not it is a major issue and le to the break-up of marriages. If your partner has been able to travel outside of the country they will likely have a much different worldview than somehow that has not. If they have received higher education than they too will have a different outlook and a wider set of opportunities. If they have zero opportunity in Morocco then they will be looking to leave the country.
Socio-economic background has a role in every relationship, couple that with cultural and possibly religious difference and YOU WILL face challenges. Immigration is a crash course. Even well-educated Moroccans can struggle to find work in their country. While your partner may have a degree that would lead to a well paying job abroad expect they will have to start over when they immigrate. Many international degrees are only partially transferable or not at all. When your partner arrives and the reality hits that they may need to start over or Attractive moroccan man a very basic job — or even that they may not be able to work for a period of time it can lead to serious difficulties.
Not to mention you may be the one financially responsible for an extended period of time. This can be a major strain on a relationship. A few weeks ago we took a trip to a village in the middle of the Atlas Mountains. I was struck by the contrast of rural and urban Morocco. If someone told me I was going to have to live in a Moroccan village after getting married I would flat out say no. Life for a man there is HARD. There is a completely different subset of cultural rules and obligations.
Where your partner is from, how they grew up and the day to day reality of what their life is can not be minimized and must be considered. If someone truly loves you for who you are than he should be ready to accept who you are. You need to pay attention and if things are out of control then step back and reassess the situation. What may seem loving and endearing can quickly become controlling.
Each person will internalize these scenarios in their own way. But, if you think I am being negative let me offer you the other side as well. I see this as quite noble and something that is nearly evaporated from western society. There is no doubt a Moroccan man will be loyal and dedicated to Attractive moroccan man family he was born in. You may see that as a betrayal of your marriage and it takes time to grasp how family dynamics here work but know the infinite strength of the Moroccan family unit will extend to your new family.
Traditional gender roles are alive and well in Morocco, even if they are slowly being broken down by new generations. Moroccan men take pride in providing for their families. Even if the wife works outside the home, the money earned is hers and hers alone — it does not have to be used to provide for the family. Why are these traditional roles a good thing?
Finding a good balance between the two is perfect. In many marriages people have told me their spouse becomes more religious as time goes on. Having a partner who is grounded in their faith can be a huge positive on a relationship.
Contemplating a cross-cultural and potentially interfaith marriage is a big undertaking and really must be thought out. That being said, there are plenty of genuine, amazing, and wonderful Moroccan men that are exceptional husbands and fathers.
Consider all angles before diving in. I am not able to answer these questions or provide matchmaking services and hope that you understand. I have been asked for more resources and help for people that are in or considering a long-term relationship with a partner of a different culture. So I created this digital guide to help you navigate the red flags, questions to ask yourself, and conversations to have with your partner. My hope is this resource will help you analyze your Attractive moroccan man situation without the need for outside input. Do you want access to all things MarocMama?

He loves with me and my daughter and my mother Here in the u. He is like Sharon s Moroccan man. Cook and etc. Neither of us are msrried. He has gone to visit his family this week and told me I can't come unless we are married. I talk to his brother online and he asked why I wasn't coming with him.
I told him why. His parents know about me and they know about my family here. I just read somewhere that the men don't bring home girls unless they going to Attractive moroccan man. Now I have an engagement but He said they were asking for me when he arrived? So he told his brother to tell me he was sleeping and he goto there and then he called the next day. He was saying he can't wait to come home. Then he told me he'd call the next day I know he is busy. I can't help but feel on the back burner.
He has texted. Each tIme. Gone a week now. My big question did he not bring me because he really isnt going to marry me? He said to me if I don't call him he would feel unimportant, im the one feeling like that! I'm just getting scared a little. Any thoughts? Advice needed please. I met a Moroccan man from Fes last year on line. At first I would casually speak with him or not at all, he continued to contact me even though I mad it clear to him I had Attractive moroccan man interest in him, eventually I caved in and we really began to have in depth conversations.
His English is good and he also speaks Spanishwhich I do to, so we understood each other. Over the months I meet all his family, mother, father, sisters, brothers. In April I decided to go visit him, while there he asked me to marry him. I accepted. His family seemed to all accept me, and treated me with the utmost respect. Some background about me I am 48, divorced and kids grown, but I am still able to have children.
He is 40 so its not a big age gap. He has never been married, nor has children, We have talked about what if I cannot have children, etc. To him everything is fine. I am going back in October and we will get married, provided the Moroccan government accepts all my papers. But I still have some doubt. Could this just be my nerves. I told him we did not have to live in the USA, I could move to Morocco, or we could live somewhere else. He has always said to me it is not about moving to America. Its about him loving me.
How do I get over feeling like maybe I am being scammed.
I don't really think this is something that can be generalized. It really depends on the person. I don't feel right offering any type of opinion on it as it will vary so much person to person. I met a Moroccan man online in April. My story is alittle different. I've never been w a Muslim before. When we started talking I didn't know he was one. I told him that I don't want Attractive moroccan man. He agrees. I've never been treated better in my life.
He's a great man, a wonderful father. He loves his family back in Morocco, esp his mom but doesn't wanna live there again. He's unlike anyone I've ever meet, he cooks, cleans, supports me going back to school. He's everything I've ever wanted in a man. I'm thinking this is going to last. Is the way he is typical for a Moroccan man? I think if he makes you happy and you're at peace it doesn't matter much how typical or atypical he is.
Every person is different and it sounds like you've found someone that you enjoy being with and vice versa! I met a really nice guy in Essaouira. We are close in age he is 3 years olderand we had a lovely time. He is a gentle soul, very respectful, earnest guy.Attractive moroccan man
