We actually made our own hybrid word where we took the ending off the English pet name Being in a relationship with someone who speaks another language teaches you a lot of their romantic terms and expressions.

I used to have this romanticized notion that materialism was something that only Western and East Asian societies suffered from, and that eventually I’d marry someone from a poorer part of the world where it’s not an issue. Given the fact that most people in the Middle East are quite religious and a huge emphasis is kept on one’s spirituality as more important than anything else, there’s still a heck of a lot of status given to people with wealth.

As I’ve already said above, men are judged quite harshly on what they own and what their status is.

Now I’m not trying to generalize at all (apologies to anyone if this comes across as offensive) but one thing I did learn in Egypt is that it can be a huge obstacle for couples.At the end of the very long discussion the girl’s father concluded by simply saying for marriage until they’re well into their mid-thirties.The reason for this is that it’s expected that you’ll already have a stable, secure job and an apartment to offer the girl you want to marry.Even though my bride-to-be’s family knew I had very little at the time, to many of her extended family I was regarded as someone of a much higher status for the simple fact that I was from a Western nation.In reality of course I wasn’t any different from anyone else.
