I'm a Muslim guy, I think I like a girl. I'm sure she likes me back, she's beautiful, smart...in short the whole package, what I've always searched for in a girl, she's the one who has all of it, I met her while studying abroad. The only issue (which I don't have a problem with at all by the way) is that she's half Jewish...it's not an issue for me personally but my family on the other hand is hardcore on being with someone who is also the same religion as I am. I don't really care about that, as long as the person I plan to spend my life with equally reciprocates my love for them then religion isn't a factor...if I bring this girl home to my family, I don't know how they'll react, a couple of relatives of mine have married Christians, of course they faced the "why marry a Christian?" question from the family but where i'm from the two dominant religions are Islam and Christianity so it's something common to see relationships with people from both these religions, so my family let it slide I guess. No one else in my family has ever been with someone Jewish, i'd be the first and neither is the Jewish religion that common where I'm from. Considering the negative religious issues between Muslims and Jewish people, I don't know how I could broach my relationship to them, will they react positively, negatively, passively? Another issue is that where i'm from a parent's opinion, decision or choice is the final say, so if they say no to her..it's a no, sometimes it goes to the extreme (I'm sure my family isn't this way though) where the family doesn't want anymore relations with you just because you didn't listen or follow their choice, they wont come to the wedding, or anything..since no one has been in my situation in my family, I seriously don't know how it could turn out..I'm torn as to how I can ever get out of this one the way I want it to go....

  • I'm a Muslim guy too, but save to say my family isn't that hardcore. But still, my parents have told me several times already that my future wife will have to be a Muslim.. Here too I have the issue regarding family's choiche is final. But I really couldn't care less about their opinion about her. They don't know her like I do.. They can tell me all sorts of things about her, that they don't like her etc and I will listen to that, since my nephew almost married a horrible woman last year but he couldn't see her negative sides. But afterall, if I feel confident she's the one, i don't think some opinion based on something what doesn't matter to me nor the girl will be so important to me to ruin it all.
