American woman dating an iranian man
I have found an acceptance of families by both sides to be of paramount importance in establishing the family as a whole.
No one has to agree or relinquish all of their own beliefs to satisfy another.
But I hear time and time again from dear friends who really do LIKE me as a person and care about me something along the lines of “Indian men want to take a foreigner out for a drive but they will drive home an Indian woman to marry.” So that mixed with my first experience dating an Indian man who told me straight-up from the start that we “have no future” because of the pressure from his family and the media due to his profession …
well, it was a nice change of pace to be with someone who told me he had no issue with that at all.
We, as parents, have the unique opportunity of picking and choosing the best from both cultures and incorporating them into the traditions of our own familiy units.
I have found the husbands,wives and children of Iranian -American families who have met the challenge of holding both languages (Farsi and English) dear, able to cross a bridge which often times seems uncrossable without the language links to culture.
Maybe, we can learn from each others victories and defeats.
Write us at [email protected] zanamu, during a heated argument recently with my Iranian boy friend (finace) he raised his hand (but didn't hit me) - what he said made me think and do some research of my own. I googled and found several vidoes on the topic of "How to beat You Wife", "Islam rules on beating wife, ... Can someone who has been married to an Iranian Muslim (culturally Muslim since he doesn't pray or fast or read koran) share their experience with me.
What is important is to always accept the spirit of compromise and look for the good.
Please give us your thoughts and experiences which have enabled or prevented you from being a whole and healthy Iranian-American family.
