Ancient Egypt was the cradle of Western Civilization. C., people had come together and formed organized societies. C., the pharaoh Menes had united the peoples of the Nile delta with those living southward along the river into a single empire.
During Egypt's height, its people thrived in the Nile valley; they constructed massive pyramids, created world-renowned art, established an advanced writing system, made advancements in science, built irrigation systems, and developed trade with Middle Eastern and Asian powers. C., the Egyptian empire had begun to decay and again divided into Upper and Lower kingdoms—that of the delta and that of the river.
So, I thought I would humor these searchers with my take on being married to an Egyptian.
But I have seen this be a source of tension in marriages where the husband not only visits the crazy relative but insists that his wife does too. DH jokes that some people in Egypt beat their children for breakfast. But I do think the manor of discipline is different between Americans and Egyptians.
Can love and romance overcome societal disapproval of interfaith marriages?
Basically, I think Egyptians make a good match for American women. Because I could see where there might be more friction/cultural mis-understandings if a big city American married a village Egyptian. I have seen standards of modesty as a problem in some marriages.
Overall, as long as you both give each other some time to understand the differences... It seems to me that Egyptians (no matter what religion) are very modest people.
