It started as a few stares here and there when we would go to visit Morocco, but when we befriended many Moroccans it became obvious that there was something else there.

Out of a handful of 10 couples all of the men had married an American woman first, and only my husband and one other were still married to that woman.

They come from a good family and i have been dating him for a little more than a year he is very good to me and my children and when i talk to his parents they are very nice to me.

Further yet is a marriage to a non-Moroccan and even children with them.

Deeper is full acceptance into a household and a culture, the final step, and one I dare say simply isn’t done-no matter what the circumstance.

Does she have to have a job to be able to bring him back to the states?

Is it okay that she is only a student and a mother, collects SSI?

The eight other Moroccan women didn’t have to verbalize what was apparent to the two of us remaining.

Perhaps it was an anomaly however it was clear that we were looked at as starter wives and that eventually our husbands’ would divorce us and find the “real” wife from home.

My boyfriend asked me if i knew of anyone willing to do this, he is very much in love with me and would never ask me to do that for him, although he wants his brother that he has not seen in nineteen years to come to the United States, he says his brother and my friend might hit it off, but its for the money she is going to do it for.

Now my question, she is on disability and going over as a tourist to visit my boyfriends family with him and I.

Moroccans are known for their hospitality, their openness and understanding, their tolerance and virtues.

Moroccan women however are not known for their love of foreign women who marry Moroccan men.

I don't know anyone who has not experienced something similiar.
