I have been married to a Man from Morocco for almost years. If I had 1 world to best describe this situation it would be STRESS!
I love my husband, but at times I seriously think the universe should be paying me to undertake this situation.
He is even older then me and it seriously feels like I am married to a child 95% of the time.
I think one thing that people fail to really think about in the start of a relationship if $$$$.
Life cost money and frankly when someone moves from a developing country to a Western country they are starting all over again and are entering the unskilled job market for a while if not forever.
ALSO heads up to any women who is not Muslim and does not intend on converting to Islam. If your husband has money or property in Morocco even if you are living there and in his family book ... if he dies you get NOTHING!!!!! Being poor in old age is epically scary especially in a developing country. Also even if you are Muslim you get next for nothing. Seriously ... my soul is not worth a crappy 8% of my husbands estate. The more living relatives he has the smaller your slice of the pie will be. In fact it might be a crumb because Moroccan families tend to be larger and it seems like everyone gets cuts. So in short marrying a Moroccan man is an economic crutch unless you are already broke/ low income and you don't have anything to loose. If you are ever married to man from Morocco make sure you have your own income and money and NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER put anything in Morocco in their name or you might as well consider it a loss. Taking money out of Morocco is a nightmare. If I have to do it all over again I would not keep him in the friend zone lol. Advise to women everywhere ... just because he asks you to marry him, it does not mean you have to say yes ; )! It is all around a bad idea. Just say no.
