The straightforward and talkative frankness of "Marriage to Saudis" also led to its retraction by the department.
The Saudis themselves were not perturbed by the document. But when the brochure went up on the department's website, the American Muslim Council demanded its removal, calling it "hurtful," "derogatory and biased." In February 2000, the department removed the document from its website for "revision," but it was never replaced.
Initially, the American citizen spouse will be almost entirely isolated from the large western community that resides in the Kingdom.
Gradually, the spouses who survive form a network with other American citizen women married to Saudis.
Inevitably, American citizen spouses characterize their Saudi husbands during their school days in the United States as being completely "westernized"; drinking beer with the best of them, chasing after women and generally celebrating all the diversities and decadence of a secular society.
Most notably, William Mc Gurn, chief editorial writer at The Wall Street Journal, has written a series of hard-hitting pieces accusing the Saudis of holding Americans captive. A new book by one of the mothers will appear early in 2003. The issue has yet to be resolved, and it has come to exemplify the sharp cultural clash suppressed by the interest-driven politics of U. No document better conveys that clash than the eight-page brochure entitled "Marriage to Saudis," which was published and distributed by the consular bureau of the Department of State, from the mid-1990s. It is remarkable for its undiplomatic and anecdotal tone, so distant from the department's standard bureaucratic style.
The document is an advisory to American women contemplating marriage to Saudi men, based on the long experience of U. For prospective spouses, "Marriage to Saudis" constituted an official tutorial in Saudi culture; for others, it served as a fascinating example of practical anthropology, school of hard knocks.
The stories of those whose marriages have failed underline the necessity of looking before leaping into the cultural chasm that separates Saudi husbands from their American wives.
The following advice and guidelines for women considering marriage to Saudi nationals were culled from interviews with women well known to our Embassy for their embattled relations with their Saudi spouses, from anecdotes from women whose husbands are well known to the Embassy because of their positions in government or business, as well as conversations with women happily or tolerably married to middle and lower class Saudis.
(A dispensation is also required before a Saudi woman may marry an Arab who is not a citizen of the Gulf Cooperation Council—i.e., Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.) The Embassy is only aware of four American men who are married to Saudis.
