His English is perfect, he’s been to America and fully understands our mentality, culture, and politics.
But he also embraces the more positive things about the bedoin culture, such as how women should be treated.

Perhaps I should clarify a bit; my husband is not only an Arab, but he’s a bedoin (desert) Arab.
He can comfortably spend his Winter in a desert tent, cooking fresh meat over fahem, and brushing his teeth with a miswak. While I’m watching the Arab Ramadan shows, he’s fully invested in an episode of Daily Show or Colbert.
If a wife calls his husband and he’s in dewaniya he WILL take her call (probably step outside to do so). If the wife explains she really needs him to come home, or needs something from the store, he WILL leave dewaniya right then to keep her comfortable.
A very high honor since the women in his family are most important in his life.
You might have a beautiful ring on your finger and a date marked on the calendar, but if you haven’t met mom and the sisters, chances are you’re being strung along. I’m sure there are some out there with far more experience than me who could add numerous items to my lists. Not sure we’ll ever really understand their reasons, but with a lot of trust and mutual respect, the reasons don’t seem to matter.
Some are living in their home country but having an online relationship with an Arab man living in his. If you don’t then he’s going to accuse you of talking to other men during this time. Regardless of what he does and how bad it really is, you’re eventually going to find yourself doing the apologizing.
I wish I had all the answers and could guide everyone off into a land of never ending bliss. Women in the Arab culture are highly respected and taught to respect themselves. Expressing dislike for certain outfits or style of clothing you’re wearing.
He’s responsible for all the bills and monthly obligations while providing me anything I want without hesitation — even if it means he goes without. My opinion matters and he always asks what I think or how I feel.
Having a husband like this has taught me to want very little as it’s far more important to me that he lives a stress free life and never goes without anything. I don’t have to ask his ‘permission’ to do anything, nor does he ask mine.
He’s never treated me as anything less than his equal other than when it involves finances.
