Sorry ladies, but I am going to have to brust some bubbles.

Men are men and women are women. No matter where you go at the core the same games are played when the context is the same.

Whenever someone from a lower economic position tries to attach on someone that might help them move up in life there needs to be red flags raised and the person in the better situation needs to be cautious.

I am married to someone from Morocco and while being married I have met MANY ... no kidding MANY women from Western countries that have married men from developing countries around the world and in most cases when the couple seems like a odd match .... it is usually a scam and the person once they get settled in and get their status in the Western country is out of there.

I personally know at least a dozen men that have done this from North Africa. In all cases the men were younger without kids and married women there were older or older with kids from a previous marriage.

As a women from a Western country it was pretty concerning seeing this happen as I also met many of their wives.

What ends up happening. Once they get their papers they end the marriage with the Western wife. Go back to the country and marry someone younger and bring them back to the Western country and start at family there.

People need to use their brains a bit and stop being so foolish.

The main different between my situation an all these other couples was my husband is older then me and actually comes from a family with money.

If he is younger and from a poor/ lower class family ... 99% of the time he is using you as a way to move up in life. Young broke desperate men will be just about anything to have a chance at a better like ... similar to women in the same situation.

Submitting....
