Americans living in Jordan

edited March 2014 in - Other M East

Hello all,

my boyfriend has been offered a lucrative job in Jordan that will require us moving. I was concerned as an American woman about a few things and have started researching customs/societal norms. I am concerned about a boyfriend and girlfriend living together in the same house, same bed. I know some countries do not allow unmarried couples to do this. I was also concerned about if I need to go out alone, can a lone female go any where with out a male chaperone? I have read quite a few sites and all seem to suggest their experiences revolve around a group, vacations, or traveling with a guide. What will day to day experiences be like?

I have already visited sites as jordanjubilee, journeywoman, tripadvisor, and lonelyplanet.


Thank you for all advice
