Submitted by Mel (United States), Jun 3, 2016 at Greetings all, I wanted to share my story & warn other women about getting involved with Egyptian guys & their families.
I want to first say everything Cynthia said in her post is TRUE!!! I did have a concern about race playing a part in the relationship because I heard Egyptians don't accept bi racial relationships.
The cases, which the Interior Ministry would not confirm or deny, varied from verbal taunts to assaults.
Al Destour newspaper said the number of incidents was higher than what was reported during the Fitr feast in September.
It's no surprise Egyptian men prefer marrying virgins.
Younger generations face less-strict scrutiny from their parents, who tend to allow their daughters to go out without parental supervision during feasts.
Police security is usually softer than it is throughout the rest of the year.
Political groups have been paying attention, with government and opposition forces condemning the attacks.
Although, this does not mean they haven't at times used the issue to score political points.
