Dating and marriage customs of morocco
marriage was immediately put on HOLD for me, I had been married before so was not in any rush to do it again J but I was pretty intrigued and wanted to see what would transpire Our relationship continued and during that time my company expanded into the the Middle East , so I was living mostly in Turkey(Istanbul) but travelling extensively for business , staying at company accommodations in Egypt, Jordan and Morocco , first 1 year he remained in Morocco , communicating daily by internet & phone , I visited Morocco frequently, finally he gave up his job to live & travel with me , it was a rocky relationship at the beginning as we were so very different by nationality , culture , religion and age…we certainly had our problems especially when I found my new PC loaded with sickening pornography…as Blueisis already commented on her post " they practice what they learn by viewing this material "' unfortunately !!!!During this four year period , I paıd for all his travel , food , clothes , English lessons (to enable him to communıcate with our guests when we set up our hotel or restaurant etc) renting cars in Morocco so he could learn to drive ( of course he had an accident which lead to me paying police, lawyers fees etc ) buying gifts for the family every time he went back to Morocco was termed necessary as they thought he was actually earning money ( lies) so he also asked for money to give his family, this is tradition in the Moroccan family whether you are working or not !! We took frequent vacations together in Morocco & South Turkey where I rented Villas etc .. but he never really appreciated this or even enjoyed it so much as his goals set wasn't to just enjoy the present luxury life , he had to fulfill his family's dreams of him becoming the successfully married businessman , he even discussed the prospect of having a business in Southern Turkey to make sure all possible options were offered ..Morocco sits on the coast of North Africa, just across the Strait of Gibraltar from mainland Europe.It has a population of approximately 4 million people, and despite its outward appearance, is a very modern country, although Moroccans hold strong to their traditions.My situation would have been different if my marriage had been registered." We also speak to critics of the code who argue that some discrimination has survived the 2004 reforms.We hear from the family of Amina Filali, a 16-year-old whose case grabbed headlines when she took her own life after being forced to marry her alleged rapist.most probably will marry one of their own and as they are much better off financially they can be accepted to marry within a better class family if you don't have money the womens family will not accept you as"'he personally experienced this previously when he asked to marry his sweetheart who he had met in university and was refused by her family as he did not have enough money to support her I truly think that is the main reason he decided to target foreigners for marriage , business and money as he found out he couldn't marry the woman he truly loved because of money ..
This film looks at the human stories behind the Moudawana, how it has modernised family law, and at the progress it still probably needs to make.

…I declined of course :) Then came the phone call I had been waiting , he was upset , said he didn't want that we split but his family and friends demanded he finish with me and find someone who would marry him and provide the stable future , I agreed that we should finish for the obvious reasons being that I really did know why he was with me now and as the relationship had been a scam anyway , but I totally resented that the family and friends were making that decision , again it made me very aware of what power the family had over him and that is really worth considering as family and friends come first before the wives.
I also would never live in Morocco as luckily I had been able to spend significant periods there in Essaouira , Casablanca , Mohammadia & Tangier over thıs four year period and had gained very good insight into the culture , religion , the lifestyle of the people , the tasks we faced as a company while working with the locals, the language etc , , I generally found it a very difficult country and culture for many different reasons .
