in response to reader comment: Questions

Submitted by Indi (United States), Jun 16, 2018 at 02:26

I'm currently married to an Egyptian man looking for an annulment of the marriage:

I can only answer a few of your questions based off my own experience:

1. Have Any non muslim or Egyptian woman had a successful marriage with Egyptian man?
*** My marriage was unsuccessful ***

3. Did your husband change after you said I Do?
*** My husband changed immediately, he stopped calling me, he stopped being romantic, he stopped selling me dreams and within weeks after our marriage he stopped calling me period. He called me two weeks later acting like nothing happened and asking when I was moving to Egypt and my response was "NEVER"... he asked why??? ***

4.Is it Expected for the wife to be go along with what ever the husband say and do?
*** I got the feeling from him that he was expecting me to do just that and knowing me it would have never happened ***

5. What are some of the behaviors that egyptian men do in marriage consider to be a norm?
*** disappear and like nothing happened, he stopped communicating because he was too busy working, and he clearly told me everything he had promised to change or improve was not gonna happened because I should accept him how he is. He also would say "a wife doesn't act like that, a wife is supposed to do this & that, like he was trying to tell me what to do... clearly that didn't workout and two months after our marriage I'm seeking and annulment ***

Submitting....
