Trial Marriages And Other Interesting Dating Customs From Around The World

June 28, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin

In the U.S., we have very few dating traditions (the man pays, the man opens the door) and even those we are quickly getting rid of, deeming them antiquated and sexist. But in other countries, dating traditions are alive and well! Like these.

    There is a form of marriage in Iran and Iraq among shiite Muslims called ENJOYMENT MARRIAGE. A couple get hitched only to enjoy the conjugal part of marriage for a short period of time ususally for a week. After that they part company. But this type of marriage is deemed immoral among the majority of Muslims.

    The pages about dating in France are spot on! Anytime you look in a
    man’s direction, he will take it as a sign that you are interested. And Frenchies do like to start kissing on you after 5 min of conversation!

    This post is what I find bizarre. This may come as a shock to you but America is not the center of the world. Simply because these are not American customs – they are bizarre? No wonder the world view Americans as untravelled, ignorant and dismissive to other cultures.

    Its so ridiculous and ethnocentric to call traditions and customs of other counries bizarre. At worst, its completely offensive and ignorant. There are many customs we have, including the way our women dress, having children before marriage etc. that are abhorrent to other countries. It makes absolutely no sense to look at the customs of others through the eyes of our own. Our culture dictates certain behaviors, and this happens in other countries too. What may seem like rushing to us, is just fine somewhere else, and that is completely ok and not for us to judge.
