about myself, my plans and my intentions with the man’s daughter.
It’d be an opportunity to make a verbal contract of sorts between the father and myself. Traditionally, this kind of over a bride-to-be is done with both peoples’ parents there and I suspect in a lot of areas (especially rural places) it’s almost like a business transaction.
When you meet her father to request permission to see her right at the start, he’ll want to be confident that you can provide all this from the get-go.
This is not only for I didn’t have an apartment or a stable job at the time but this was only after I explained my short to mid-term plans in extreme detail.
There were lots of questions about religion and family too.
This meant everything about my mother and father, what they do and whether or not they’re together, as well as the extent of my religious commitment.

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.

He asked me questions about everything – particularly finances.

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.
