It is a new relationship. He said we will keep it secret for awhile. But then he called his mom in the UAE and told her he is in love with me. She was not happy, so he tried again the next day. He never told me what happened the second time. He got really quiet around me since then and won't make eye contact. He said his mom doesn't hate me and we can still be together, but I don't understand why he won't look at me. Neither of us go into a relationship unless it could result in marriage. I am not arabic or muslim. I am a Christian woman. I do love languages though and am trying to learn arabic. I don't go out. I don't drink. I mostly just work as a teacher and cook and clean. I'd this him or his mom having him avoid me?

It's very hard to be with a Muslim man and especially their family. I, for One, know this probably as well as anyone here, dear for I Am... A Christan girl myself.
Four years ago, a man from Egypt found me on FB and we had started a whirlwind romance by chance. We got to know one another on Skype and along with him, I also was acqquainted with his family as well.
I then flew off to the magical land of Cairo, where I stayed for 30 days. I bwegain to learn all about him and his family's way of life, their religion and culture, which I mixed well with.
However, the second trip over, for we planned to tie the knot at the Mistry of Justice, which we did, his bro and his Muslim fiance also were getting hooked and al the parties, preparing, the glamorous apartment with all of the goodies in the gfamily house, wenmt directly to Them a sa Muslim couple. I felt left out, felt we were cheated from a lot and I felt it was not fair. I saw a lot of wrong, a lot of injustice, and even though I was this Christan girl, I do think we could have been appreciated and respected a bit more than we were.
Don't get me wrong, when I first met the hundreds of family members, I was treated like royalty as this American princess but on the second trip, it was all taken for granted, and the attention was now on the bro and his babe, leaving a sour ball in my mouth.
I stayed for awhile, learning to be aMuslim's wife but I did learn a few lessons in love and in life , and that The wife is second, the parents come first and even Now... He will never leave the family home to , mpve elsewhere to have anormal life with me in Egypt.
Think twic ebefore getting back up witgh him. They have certain strict morals, believe in different things and your situation, even being a Christan, is something they will frown on.
Good luck. xx0
