in response to reader comment: planning on marrying this man

My instinct tells me you're being taken advantage of. The controlling rigmarole is pretty much normal for an Egyptian man, so that's no cause for concern unless it turns into violence. But really... no friends? An Egyptian man with no friends... nope, not happening unless there's something really wrong with him.

See a lot of us women are from Christian or Catholic backgrounds, and we are raised on forgiveness and unconditional love. So... we tend to be very patient with these men, very devoted and undemanding. We give our all to these men and for what... honestly, what do they ever give back other than a big ol' pile of drama? This fella won't even present you to his mother!

For sure they love it. Why wouldn't they? They have everything on the table for them. They have a subservient infidel woman warming their beds and lining their pockets. Whether they value us for it, well that's a whole different ball game. But I'd say it's fairly easy to tell whether a man values you or not in his actions.

Because, you see, their own women aren't even touched without being provided with a fully furnished house and a bag of gold. But that's absolutely fine, why worry about all that when you have kuffar women giving it out for free.

Wake up ladies, these men can't and don't respect us. They barely respect their own women. One thing I always do is imagine that I have a daughter going through the same thing.... what would you advise her and what would you think?
