For religious and cultural reasons these girls tend to be quite inaccessible to outsiders and often have their romantic and sexual choices restricted or simply made on their behalf.
A high proportion of Muslim girls, families, and communities take religious and cultural practices and rules seriously. These practices include an outright ban on romantic and sexual contact with non-Muslim men. That makes them a difficult, but not impossible challenge for an outsider. The journey to success with a Muslim girl is often challenging but can be a rewarding one.
This article attempts to offer some guidance on what a man should expect on this journey. All points are generalizations only, based on the personal experiences of the author, who is not a Muslim. As with any other religious group there is a high level of variation between individuals within that group. These points should only be seen as tendencies to look out for and warnings of what to be prepared for, not as certainties.

The Structure of The Marriage Covenant Companionship The years of romance and intense sexual activity are shorter and less enduring than the years of sustained, lifelong friendship. Companionship must precede true yichud love in marriage, it is a necessary component during the peak years of sexual involvement, and it is the sweet, mellowed, and blessed gift of married life in old age.
The Sages of the Talmud were referring to companionship when they said, “It is better to remain coupled than to be widowed. The idea of friendship between husband and wife was not a component of non-Jewish religions until the Protestant Reformers maintained that companionship should actuate a marriage. As an illustration of this emphasis in Jewish tradition, two of the seven blessings under the wedding canopy are joyous celebrations of companionship: His answer was that these blessings, because they were recited at every wedding, had to relate to the sterile as well as to the fertile.

Shalom bayit Marital harmony, known as “shlom bayit,” is valued in Jewish tradition. The Talmud states that a man should love his wife as much as he loves himself, and honour her more than he honours himself;  indeed, one who honours his wife was said, by the classical rabbis, to be rewarded with wealth. Traditionally, the obligations of the husband include providing for his wife.
He is obligated to provide for her sustenance for her benefit; in exchange, he is also entitled to her income. However, this is a right to the wife, and she can release her husband of the obligation of sustaining her, and she can then keep her income exclusively for herself. The document that provides for this is the ketuba. The Bible itself gives the wife protections, as per Exodus The rights of the husband and wife are described in tractate Ketubot in the Talmud, which explains how the rabbis balanced the two sets of rights of the wife and the husband.
According to the non-traditional view, in the Bible the wife is treated as a possession owned by her husband,  but later Judaism imposed several obligations on the husband, effectively giving the wife several rights and freedoms;  indeed, being a Jewish wife was often a more favourable situation than being a wife in many other cultures.
