Dating a muslim woman
By the time I graduated from high school, I did not find Bangladeshi men attractive – only white guys were cute.
I was the girl that guys would talk to so that they could get closer to my pretty best friends.
I wish to marry her but fear the consequences on her soul.
Much of what I have researched says that this is not permissible because of the way the children will be raised and/or the non-Muslim (as being head of the household) may discourage her in her beliefs and practices.
The food of those who have received the Scripture is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them.
And so are the virtuous women of the believers and the virtuous women of those who received the Scripture before you (lawful for you) when ye give them their marriage portions and live with them in honor, not in fornication, nor taking them as secret concubines.
Given that you’ve clearly thought this situation through, I would now offer that the onus is on the woman whom you wish to marry.
As far as I was concerned, I would only marry a white guy – if I was to get married at all.
” I wonder if white men get asked the same question: Do they find their choice in white women limiting? If I happen to find a white guy who shares the same values and there’s chemistry, sure! If I’m on a dating site where they ask you and I have to choose, I don’t pick white.” “Have you ever tried to date a white guy? “Actually, my longest relationship – two years – was with a white guy. But as a teenager – all I knew was that I was rebelling against my parents’ traditional ideas.
” Maybe I’ve been doing this dating thing all wrong. The crushes I developed were the same crushes that all the girls in my grade school developed: on blond, blue-eyed, athletic, popular boys.
The thing was, as a child of immigrants in the 80s, the good Bangladeshi Muslim boys in my age range were few and far between.
You also stated that you would never interfere with her beliefs and that children would not be a consideration because you can’t have children.
