I am from a Hindu family dating a Muslim and have mixed feelings about this. Basically she prioritized meeting her religious requirements over being with him - which probably wouldn’t have worked out in the long run either way. From my POV it is possible to marry a Muslim without converting, but not if religion is the number 1 priority.

like

It requires more forethought and planning than a traditional marriage but doesn’t have to be complicated if parents have a plan of attack on how to raise the kids re: religion. Lots of resources now on how to raise kids in an interfaith household

My close friend is married to a Muslim man and she did not have to convert. He continues to observe his religion and she is mostly irreligious (Hindu). Kids are being taught both religions but they don’t really observe anything beyond the cultural stuff. It is certainly doable.

This is the way.

“Converting” is an unrealistic expectation to begin with. This is something he should have thought through rather than just saying yes immediately

I feel girl is definitely at fault here for prioritizing her religion over the guy. She brought up the conversion even when her mother knew nothing about the guy. They both could have continued practicing their own faiths and still could have been able to get married if she had stayed strong.

The girl was sleeping with him (implied) a be d enjoying alcoholic drinks. I doubt if she was anywhere near religious.

I empathise with the Hindu person in that story.

I will never convert to another religion, especially one that suggests there is no god but theirs.

like

So this girl assumes a good match should give up his own faith and beliefs and accept her faith? Is she willing to do that ?

My initial comment was in response to D3’s comment about Hinduism. And EY1 actually agreed and revised their comment as well below the original

If the girl was sleeping in the same room as him and enjoying drinks, I think religion went out of the window at first glance.

She just used this as an excuse. I know a friend of mine marrying an Indian Hindu at the peak of indo-pak tensions without her converting. So I think this is just an excuse.

So heartbreaking...the generation before us are blinded by “culture” and “religion” and they twist it to the way they see fit. In a similar situation so this hits extra hard

It felt authentic, heartbreaking but more importantly harsh truth, no matter how much we talk about living in a secular society this hurts to even read- btw M here, for reference

Man, I have like 10% sympathy for this girl, 90% disdain. The point of those filters is to filter for deal breakers. There are plenty of hot, sensitive, music-loving dudes across all races and religions. But why bother wasting your time with someone who doesn’t fit what you need? Sure he slipped through the first time, but once you found out, which I figured was right away with his name, don’t bother????

she was actually confident that she can convert him.....
