I would think that with him have being raised in Kuwait his entire life could possibly make this more of an issue depending on the culture there.He was born and raised in Kuwait, then came to America for college when he was seventeen.Based on some Arab friends I've had, I know that their parents don't like them to date interracially and it's important for them to continue practicing Islam in the family they create.I even know some Arabs who will have arranged marriages.
Some even ‘warned’ me before making the decision to get married. "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood." Last night, I had this interesting conversation with one my girlfriends in Cairo. It is always nice to catch up with her about our girly and non-girly news despite the distance.Sharing responsibility is not an issue to be discussed.In Egypt, poor women have to do everything; cook, do the dishes, raise the kids, help them with the homework, go to work, get the groceries, laundry, plan vacations…etc. A mother giving up her son to another woman is like giving up a diamond stone even if he is a straw man.
