Great post as alwaysI’m allowed to disagree with anything you say, so keep that in mind, you or nobody else will think for me or tell me what to believe. So you ask who I am, I’m a Lebanese woman, I am a Muslim woman, I’m an educated free thinking loyal woman, I’m logical yet friendly and I’m married to a Tunisian man; very proud wife ( he is educated, not from poor family, not from the outskirts, paid and still pays for his family; meaning me and never ever worked in Tourism), I live in Sousse. We moved back here after living in New York/ PA area for some years. There are plenty of things we liked about USA, but we wanted to be in a more laidback country and kids be closer to my husbands family. I would actually love to say everything you wrote is “nonsense” as you say, but I’ll give you a little more respect, after all you are entitled to your opinion. But going off facts I can tell you so many couples I personally know of successful Tunisian men and women being married to westerners. I was an executive member for a German company for many years before deciding to have children and many of my financial colleagues were married to Tunisian men that also worked in the same sector, there was nothing to gain from one another. So by you saying “ only the poorest are in such relationships”, it’s not true. I see where you are coming from though, unfortunately it’s often the case when some lower class citizens find western women to marry to get out of a bad situation, but not always.... so don’t make a blanket statement. As far as you telling me take a look at the jabris in the gallery,, you are right most look like scum, but let’s be honest there is someone for everyone and Tunisia has its share of low class and easy women as well. So these guys you say have no opportunity with local women is false, they do and most of them are sleeping with their Tunisian woman while their western women WesternUnion money to them and then both of the scums spend it. Also, a handful of men in that gallery could fool any woman, but the majority I agree are not eye candy. By the way, I’m dying of curiosity, please send me the website with the statistics showing that thousands of Tunisian Doctors, IT, Engineers ..... rarely marry western women. After that maybe you can pull University of Tunis records and let’s just discuss how many “thousands” graduates from the professions you mentioned per year and obtain visas to work abroad, then we will statistically determine the amount from that pool that marry and find available Tunisian women abroad, I think that would be an interesting topic alone. Now, to finish I have a question for you... are you actually with a western woman?
