I am really blessed that my husband and my marriage has largely defied those stereotypes.I know many other women (and men) whose relationships also defy them.If they have zero opportunity in Morocco than they will be looking to leave the country.
In many marriages people have told me their spouse becomes more religious as time goes on.
Moroccan men take pride in providing for their families.
It’s also a requirement that Muslim men care for their families financially.
Just don’t expect your partner to completely cast aside his family loyalty as soon as you tie the knot. Traditional gender roles are alive and well in Morocco, even if they are slowly being broken down by new generations.
This might grate on western notions but it’s really not all negative.
