So many people ask me questions about dating that I thought I’d share some guidelines, do’s and don’t’s with you; to help you make dating fun, safe and successful.
Neither of these scenarios represent the norm for the typical Western Muslim. We ask super serious questions that prod into the history of the person, their financial status, whether they want to have kids or not and anything else that our parents will interrogate us about when we tell them we’ve found someone. And this interrogation continues for as long as necessary until we’ve asked all the important questions. This is because our parents have conditioned us to feel guilty about not telling them things. The bride freaks out and wonders whether she has warned the groom about all the oddities of her family and whether she has coached him enough about what he should and shouldn’t say. They prepare the gift(s) they have bought for the bride – y’know, flowers, sweets, chocolates, whatever.In that case, it’s only right that a girl comes prepared and ready.
