Marriage in the Parisian suburbs

In her book Questioning French Secularism: Gender Politics and Islam in a Parisian Suburb (Contemporary Anthropology of Religion series) 2012, Dr. Jennifer A. Selby found that second and third generation immigrant men, whose families came to France from the Mahgreb, like to marry old-fashioned Muslim girls and to reject the secular values of the French Republic and secularism. Dr Selby is an authority on secularismwomen in Islam and gender studies

"What is more striking is that their sons, born and educated in France, seek similar arrangements with North African women even if they often do not share a common language or upbringing."
