They live more of a form of western living in the United States. They have all but stopped naming their children with religious names and have adopted western dress. Although they seem to have assimilated, their private life still advocates their unique worldview identity. For instance, their homes are relatively simple, avoiding extravagant furniture and keeping their traditional tables that are low to the ground with thin pads on the floors to sit. Modern day Druze adopt and adapt to westernization.
Moreover, adherence to their unique form of Islam reinforces their people group identity. Their quasi-Muslim sect is part of the Shia Islam denomination of Islam. Characterized by an eclectic system of doctrines and by a cohesion and loyalty among its members, enables Lebanese Druze to maintain their close-knit identity and distinctive faith. They permit no conversion, either away from or to their religion. In addition, marriage outside the Druze faith is rare and is strongly discouraged.

Los Angeles, California; Dearborn, Michigan; Charlotte, North Carolina; Boston, Massachusetts; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Dallas, Texas; Houston, Texas; Washington, DC; Seattle, Washington; New York, NY; Raliegh, North Carolina. Also, Druze are scattered in Arizona, central and southern Florida, Georgia, Connecticut, northern California, northern Illinois, Ohio, Oklahoma.
