Question by : What is customary in an Egyptian marriage proposal and engagement?
I've always been interested in Egyptian history, but have recently become more interested in customs. I've picked up some things here and there, but I still don't have a clue what's customary regarding dating, engagement and marriage. Is it really that different from western customs? I've read that wedding rings are exchanged, is there an engagement ring as well? Thank you all in advance, I hope I can learn a lot from all of you!

In modern Egypt people wear nearly the same things western people wear these days. In engagement and marriage it's also the same,,,,I dunno about the country sides of Egypt, I think they're different dunno.
Wedding rings are usually the same as the engagement ring. When the couple are engaged the guy wears a silver ring on his right hand and the girl wears a golden one on right hand. When they get married they wear the same rings but on the left hand.
