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

Submitted by Didi (Italy), Oct 21, 2020 at 16:33

It's been awhile since I've been on, with the baby and then the virus craziness. I did end up marrying my Moroccan headache. Lol It's been a few months now... and it's ok.

He's still a hot head and gets annoyed easily, but he calms down quickly because of our daughter. He's less frustrated since he's been working and got himself legalized in Europe.

I will give him credit, he works hard and gives me a good bit of his salary for me and the baby. He's also helping his family back in Morocco. So, he's doing his "duty" which he points out frequently. And notes how I should be thankful he's "honest" and didn't do it all for the residency. He gets a huge ego when boasts about not needing me or our daughter for legalization; he uses this as a premise to let me know he really loves us as he said. It makes my skin crawl just being reminded of how they treat women for a residence permit!

So, we've gotten along decently. Even when we may not be so happy, our mutual love for this lil princess bonds us. He's an amazing dad I must say. He's even mentioned wanting to have another baby when this whole virus mess is over. He thinks he's proven his love, sincerity, and provider quality.

Tbh, I was considering it... until last week. We ran into a friend of his he hadn't seen in years. Evidently the friend had married a Moroccan woman who is citizen in Europe, got his permanent residence, and then divorced. Seems this was the agreement. Soooo, after we were alone, my husband mentioned he had a couple cousins who wanted to go to the US and asked if I had family who would be interested in an "arrangement." I replied that no one in my family or friend circle would be interested. Now I'm on edge again, wondering how serious he really is... what do you guys think?
