In Morocco, if you are unmarried you are viewed as a “girl” not a “woman.” Now let me break that down, it might sound strange since in the West we are raised to understand a girl becomes a woman through physical, emotional, and psychological changes from puberty and aging.
But, for traditional (and oddly some non-traditional) folk, you become a woman when you consummate your marriage.
On an almost contradictory point, I should point out in big cities some couples actually live together.
