I sat with the Iranians listening to Hand of the Cause Mr.Furatan who was speaking in Persian, even though I didn't understand a word; I loved being with the Iranians and listening to his voice speaking that language.(Carolyn Cole / Los Angeles Times)Now 35, Azadi has moved to a more genteel part of town but still lives by herself.More than 3 million educated Iranian women over 30 are unmarried, according to Mizan, the official news agency of Iran’s judiciary.Unfortunately he's gone back to Iran and we're communicating by means of email and chat which is not that reliable. I don't mean to generalise but are there any characteristics that Persian/Iranian guys have in common? It is hard to explain this, I know confident and humble are so opposite, but Iranians are composed of the two. Value an education (Also, regardless of whether or not they have a degree, they are very smart..instance, my father doesn't have any type of college degree, and yet he can fix anything--a computer, a refrigerator, install stuff, tear down a wall in the house, rebuild..just made me a charger for my computer, because mine was broken..can do ANYTHING) 3.I have come to meet them thanks to my husband and I can say they are one of those people who are as good as they get.Jean, Reza and Odie at Caledonia waterfall, Cyprus Nationality American Years married 25 years this year Children & ages 3 children ages 30,19 and 17.
Do any of you have similar problem and what do you recommend. He does have family here but he is not close to them. Talk to your husband about that and see if you can come to a resolution together.
Unfortunately he's gone back to Iran and we're communicating by means of email and chat which is not that reliable. I've been close with this Persian guy I met last October. They will serve the guest with an unlimited amount of the best fruits and the best meals..will also take you out around the city to show you a good time. They always dress up nicely..clothes, hair, accessories, cologne, EVERYTHING. They have a great sense of humor, and know how to have a great time.
We're not really dating but we seem to have shared mutual feelings towards each other. They make everyone feel welcomed, and they always want to show you how important you are to them... Iranians in general are very friendly..you say "Hi" then they will just start talking to you as if you are family (invite you over to their house for a meal, etc.) and they always try and maintain the friendship..value your friendship and respect you…they are always there for you, and will offer to help you in any way. They try to dress themselves in the best brands and the best quality of clothing..an Iranian is rich or not, you will not be able to tell, because they always take time to care about their outward appearance..like to look respectable. Iranians are also very proud people..are proud of where they came from, as well as their culture..confident (not arrogant), and yet humble at the same time. Again, I am not generalizing, but just speaking from my own experience.
The oldest is my husband's stepson, so you see what a good person my husband is that he's accepted my oldest son as his own son (and it was really a necessary requirement too). I think that puts holes in any stereotype someone may have that Iranian men would not be as all embracing in family life as Western men. We met in Haifa, Israel on Pilgrimage to visit the Baha'i holy places.
We met on the last day at an informal talk in the Old Pilgrim house.
How has your life changed since you married an Iranian man?
