Something Mena Men say to Western Women

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men

Submitted by Sheila, Oct 14, 2018 at 16:30

I know I'm leaving a lot of comments today but something I was reading about was how flattery will get you about anywhere you want. These men tell western women how young they look. This is when there is an age difference. They will say how young they look and of course this is flattering hearing this from a young handsome man. They say age doesn't matter.

Don't listen to them because it matters every little bit int these countries. Even 2-3 years age difference matters to them. They simply do not marry older women in their country. It's not accepted. If they marry an older woman it's for financial gain. In western countries there are rare cases of men marrying older women. The article I read says to be wary of them even if you're the same age. It could still be for financial gain, life in a first world country.
