I was never able to wrap my head around this why is it acceptable for a man to marry outside his race but not for the woman I'm fully aware that some women do but it's usually like the biggest deal ever and the woman that usually marry interracially are either over 30 or it's her second marriage but when a guy does it and it's so casual everyone it's like wow good for him he married outside his race and it's a beautiful thing but then when a woman around my age marries A different race considered disgusting and disgrace :-(

Good question. It's something I find hard to understand and justify. I come across an Arab woman who is deeply out of love with her husband and marriage, and abused by husband for over four years. The natural thing to do is to divorce. She told me, her tradition and religion do not allow a woman to divorce. Only the man can divorce the woman. I was like that's bullshit.0

I'm going through this issue. my parents are giving me a very difficult time for wanting to marry a non-arab, yet my grandfather married a white woman and that was ok.
My parents explained it to me: the man is the one in charge basically. The woman becomes a part of the mans family. The man's religion and culture is what the woman must follow. Therefore, if an arab man marries a non-arab woman it's ok because the culture is perserved.
It is a very tribal culture so the individual's happiness should be sacraficed for the whole of the family. It sucks so bad. Image is important so people will gossip and it will tarnish the arab womans family's reputation if she marries a non-arab1
