iam a jordanian guy and i used to work in jordan migration, this might be hard for u to accept because you love this guy but ill tell you what, this guy is a big lier, ther's no such rules for foreigners to marry a jordanian girl inorder to get the passport, in fact a jordanian girl cant give the passport meaning if a jordanian girl got married with any other nationality the jordanian passport wont be giving to him, that is the first thing, the second thing is that palastinians with thier temporary palestanian passport or documents either from west bank or from gazza strip are allowed to work in any arab country with thier documents even in saudi or in jordan he can stay as much as he wants as long as he's working there, the third thing thing is that if i may say execuse me to say that but asian people are not accepted in jordan we have around 10,000 chiniese girls working in jordanian factories and its an acceptable for people to talk to thim in fact they are living thier own community with no contacts of any jordanian people, the reason why he told you all of those thing is to get away with lies after he took what he wants from you.

Hi le anne

my answer what he said is not true and he cheat you truly , his problem that he is already married, all story about passport is fake, and never a rules such as that in Jordan, even if he married and wanna marry you he can do that easy , he needs to marry to proof that he is single , but he canít do that , so he create this story .... gud luck

my boyfriend is a Jordanian / Palestinian. we both read this letter. A Muslim guy can marry a christian girl, no one can dictate him and put him in jail if he will marry a non-muslim..the guy is a certified liar... so just forget that liar....

Hello ..

I'm a Jordanian man and my origin from Palestine , i have a jordanian passport since born , me and all my family also since 1948 , i'm in love with a Filipina Girl i met her in Saudi Arabia ,and i visit her in Philippines so i think i'm near to your story , i can tell you about what he is telling if he did not marry a jordanian girl he will be in jail , let me tell you that this is not possible , i live in jordan and i know the regulations here about this issue , plus i have a friend have a temporary Jordanian passport he is from Palestine also , but he live in jordan since born and everything okay with him just like he is jordanian , so one of two is the right , that u  misunderstand what is the real problem with this guy or he is not telling the truth ...

About his family , yeah maybe they are not accepting that thier son will marry a girl from diffrent culture , but if he really loves , this will not be a problem for him .. at the end he can marry any girl he want , no one can stop him .. that's if he really want this , if he really honest in his love to her ... all i want to say , is just make sure that he loves you ...

I wish you the best of luck ..

I can answer questions on Arab culture, including differences in cultures among Arab countries and sub-groups. I can also answer questions on Christian-Muslim relations, interfaith issues in general, and human rights and peacemaking issues in the Middle East.


I was a human rights worker for four years in the Middle East, and have spent time in Palestine, Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan. I speak intermediate Arabic; some Hebrew; and am starting Persian (Farsi, Dari). I have led a half-dozen educational delegations to the area for North American groups; and I have led trainings for nearly a thousand international human rights volunteers coming into the area over my years there. I am now working to launch an interfaith peace-teams based human rights organization, hopefully in the next two years. I am also currently editing the manuscript for my first book, a firsthand account of my time in the Middle East

"Be the Healers," (next steps after Abu Ghraib) The Lutheran magazine, July 2004. Multiple press releases which I wrote from the field, as well as media interviews/articles about my work are also available via Google search.

I have an MA in Christian-Muslim relations; and I am now continuing my studies at Chicago Theological Seminary ( I also have a BA in Religion concentrating in global service, from Wartburg College, (
