Question: Are you allowed to date in Egypt?

Because of prevalent notions in our society such as religion, dating for the sake of dating is considered “haram” and “shemal”. Sometimes, you dont want to get serious with someone but at the same time you dont want to stop dating them.

Cohabitation is simply not accepted in Egyptian society. The way both the Egyptian legal system and society treat women who choose to live with a partner before marriage is completely different to the way they treat men who do the same. To so many people here, its permissible for a man to do whatever he wants.

Can a 27 year old date a 16 year old?

The answer is yes; however, because the 16 year old is still a minor, if she is doing things she should not be doing he could be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
