not completely outside your family & race. Religion. I've dated Iranian men, who were very charming but they are so completely different from my culture & religion I wouldn't marry one.
There are cases where these marriages work but few & far between. I've been married for 22 yrs to an Italian from New Jersey, I'm Jewish - Portugese & we seem to be compatible go figure....
The most important compatibility factor are beliefs. If you like Persian guys and you're Christian, marry a Christian Persian guy. I'm Mexican, married a Persian man, he's the sweetest most generous, helpful, and hygiene-conscious husband ever. I couldn't be happier, thank God. He takes care of me even better now than when we were dating. I feel like people try to make generalizations based on culture/ethnicity. Sure, some generalizations can be valid, but most are whack. There are good guys and there are weirdos of every ethnicity. I married my husband because he was genuine, kind-hearted and generous. I try to be the same with him in return.
I met this Iranian guy in our university.. He is 10 Years elder to me, but now we both are getting friendly and even more than friends... I don't know anything about Iranian guys... But I have never met such a polite and good man.
I'm engaged to a Persian man, he is 10 years younger but wise beyond his years! He's been working in IT since he was 14 and by 16 he had an office with staff. All this while he was still in school and working at night! Right now he's back in university getting a degree with his own $$$ but still managing his IT business from here! He's only 25 and knows how to treat me. He takes care of me very well, makes sure everything is ok, I literally don't have to lift a finger. I can't wait till he graduates so he can soar. I must say the thing that really got me hooked was how impressive this young man is. Very brave, strong, intelligent, sweet, responsible and handsome! I just want to see how far he can go. And boy....the romance.....he is just something else.
As for YOU.....if you are not already married to him, go for it only if you are prepared to completely give yourself to him. Persian men are sensitive but also very male oriented in the sense that you belong to him and vise versa. To say its male machoness is not completely fair because Persian culture itself spells chivalry and romance! They are very cultured, enjoy their poems and when it comes to love they can be so "rich". There is a term of endearment in Persian that literally means "my equal" which is a very romantic and loving thing to call your Persian lover. How sophisticated is that!
Unlike other middle eastern men, Persian men put the fairer sex at a much more respected position. But with all these great qualities come with a big string attached. Remember to never ever cheat on him, if he loves you that much, he will tear the house apart and would be so enraged that he would walk out the door and never be seen ever. They are very loyal men once you are together. As with any men, food is the way! Learn a few Iranian dishes and make him happy. He will return the favour with endless affection and care. You can be career oriented and if he loves you, you will have no problems but just be sure to be only his...
Dont marry an Iranian man. They are hairy
they're fucked up proud bigots. I live with one.
Every family and person
is different. I think who ever a person chooses to marry, no matter what
religion or nationality, must realize that communication and compatibility is the key. I am from
the states and have been married to a man from Iran for 25 + years. Our
religions are different and of course our cultural upbringings. We have enjoyed
sharing our cultures and holidays BUT we do not try to change each other. That is respect. My in-laws love me and I love them. I am a horrible cook and my husband enjoys cooking. So we compromised. He cooks and I do the clean up. I know other couples
that our Iranian/American. Some are very content and some were miserable. Our
lives have had ups and downs but we confronted all the challenges and we are
happy. Let’s face it, it’s not what the person is, it is who the person is.
Keeping a marriage successful is a lot of work. It takes lots of love,
patience and reassurance from both people. Just take your time and get to know the
person you are going to marry.
As a persian girl i do believe that good and bad is everywhere. Why considering marrying to a specific nationality?when you meet someone you really love then you should also trust and respect the person despite all the differences.i've seen couples with same cultures that were miserable and different couples who knew how to solve this cultural barriers by sacrificing and respecting each other. For example your persian man is very close to his family in a middle eastern way(which is sometimes queer for westerners) then he should manage his relationship in a way that doesn't hurt his girl or wife's feeling.this is understanding despite of cultural differences.
