Muslim women are not allowed to marry non-muslim men, but those who do are they happy or fear God or both?
I ask this question because i fell in love with a non-muslim man and i'm supposed to be muslim. I'm no longer muslim, therefore i can't marry a muslim man. However i'm considering converting back to Islam as it has taught me a good way of life, i don't think the guy will convert, but you never know and I don't want to impose on him, as it's up to him but I'll let him know about Islam. We love each other. I am in a big dilema and don't want to hurt him and i don't want to be hurt in the future if i go back to my religion and have to leave him, i'm hurting now for having to deal with this dilema. It would be worse if we have kids. Some advice and opinions would be grateful. I know that there are muslim women out there who have married non-muslim men, I would like to know how you feel about this and are you happy? How do the families of the muslim women feel about this? Do you still practice Islam to some degree and are still together with a non-muslim guy, how does it work for you?

I think typically, it's best for people to marry in the same religion... that way, you both have the same values, especially if you start raising a family...

You are a very lucky woman. If you had married a Muslim, could you tell him that you were changing religions? You will be DEAD meat. Think about it.

The reason Muslim women were required to marry Muslim men is because their children would be raised the same religion as the father. That's why a Muslim man could marry a Christian or Jewish woman, because the kids would still be raised Muslim... More

There are many more religions than Islam that will teach you a good way of life and will still let you into eternal paradise without marrying a muslim man. I'm christian, but don't let me impose my religion on you. All christianity offers is eternal life by only accepting Jesus Christ as the Son of God and your... More

It all depends on what IQ level you both are. Few of my friends who have married inter-religiously, are finding it absolutely alright to practice their individual religions without one hurting the other. It requires great deal of maturity and understanding. Also, it is important which Country are they in. I am in... More

I think everyone should marry within there own religion, if possible. It saves alot of unnecessary drama when it comes to practicing your religion and raising the children. We don't need any mixed children out there. As far as you re-accepting Islam, I am all for it... don't let anyone change your mind or discourage... More

Don't convert back to Muslim unless you believe whole heartedly that Allah is the only true God and Islam's teachings. If you don't believe then take the values that you have learned from it and raise your children with them. If you do decide to convert and he doesn't then it will take it's toll on the marriage but it... More
