Today I’ve decided to share a few lessons with you that I learned from the whole experience. Some guys in the West still have the decency to talk to the girl’s father before asking her to marry him. In Egypt (and I suspect all over the Arab world) this is something that needs to be done right at the start when you start dating.It should give you some idea of what’s usually expected in Egyptian society if you ever meet the man or woman of your dreams. I went on two ‘dates’ (by that I mean hanging out in populated areas getting to know each other) with this girl at which time she told me that I needed to meet her father and request his permission to continue seeing her.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.At the end of the very long discussion the girl’s father concluded by simply saying for marriage until they’re well into their mid-thirties.As a Christian dating site we believe that marriage is a sacred covenant between man and woman, ordained by God as part of His divine plan for each of us. God says in Genesis : "It isn't good for man to be alone; I will make a companion for him, a helper suited to his needs." God himself brings people together according to his timetable.
about myself, my plans and my intentions with the man’s daughter.Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Through Jesus we may even call him 'Abba Father'.The apostle Paul writes in 2 Corinthians : "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers." We believe that this warning also applies to marriage, and that it's better for Christians not to marry non-believers.However, many Christians can't find their soul mate in church, and many singles are simply too busy to maintain an active social life.This is why we want to help unmarried Christians to meet other Christian singles — for a serious relationship, but also for fellowship and spiritual growth.
