Guess i am upset with program 90 day financee and photos other americans post of their trips

Please if you are an american woman going to Morocco,  learn about your financee and his family and the culture

His mother and family will not really approve if you are bare armed and bared legged and show some of your chest

you must learn this and show respect for yourself and his family

a woman smoking?    bad idea    in the house and in public

if you don't know these things and ask of him before you travel,  you are not interested enough in his culture and family

there are a lot more you should find out before you go,  so just ask and tell him you do not want to disgrace yourself in Morocco

if not muslim, you do not need to cover your hair but the body,  yes, if his mother (very important to a Moroccan man) is to accept you

I know exactly what you mean! It's ridiculous that these couples on the show are even considered for a K-1 visa. It just shows how unfair the entire system is and how just one person in the entire universe gets to decide your future. I just can't even fathom what some of the CO's were thinking. And yet several divorces are considered evil...geeze....

That show is completely unrealistic and mostly fake. That 'couple' that you talk about are train wrecks. Not sure if even 5% is true about the show. Acting (bad at that on all the couples). 

I stopped watching after two episodes.

While I agree with the general idea of being respectful and mindful of Moroccan (and any other culture), I think think issues like clothing vary very widely based on where you are in Morocco and the mindset of the the specific person you are dealing with. My Moroccan mother in law and family never had a problem with me wearing short sleeves...My husband was perfectly fine with me wearing a sleeveless and knee length dress when going out to dinner with family. His family is from Rabat/Salé, so I do believe that cultural expectations are different from perhaps more conservative areas. I didn't personally smoke, but there are many Moroccan women who do. As you said, of course, everyone should spend time getting to know their fiancé/husband and his family before getting married too quickly.

actually wasn't the show that made me post

a woman i met is now in Morocco and posting photos of her in off the shoulder top and showing cleavage

and yes,  some smoke but the other woman look down on them 

i have been from Tangers to Sidi ifni and covered quite a bit of Morocco

the old people do not accept the new ways

i say, if you want the mom and family to not only accept you but like you, find out what is acceptable

they all talk a lot about respect in that country

they all want it

so, if you also want it,  respect the country, the culture and the family you intend to join

you do not marry a man in Morocco, you marry a family


and i say this is true no matter which country we visit,  know something about it first and dont' be so AMERICAN that you can not be part of the country

First of all, when I was in Morocco, I saw plenty of couples similar to the ones on 90 Days. While the people may tolerate women wearing sleeveless outfits and short skirts, it's still disrespectful in a country where that is not acceptable. It's even more strict in Pakistan. I wear longer capris in the hotel or running next door to get a chocolate bar (with my husband) where it is heavily guarded, but I would never go "out" and about with clothes that make me stand out. I stand out enough with my pasty white skin...lol.  When your bf or husband tells you what is disrespectful in their culture, you listen to show them respect. It's just common courtesy. I know lots of that show is "staged", but there's a heck of a lot that is true. I've seen it with other couples.
