    Women sholdn't marry Muslims?

    YouTube - Women sholdn't marry Muslims?


    Muslim women are not allowed to marry non-Muslim men(yet a very few do).. Does it make sense for us to "ban" marriages of Christian women to Muslims?
    Is this the right direction to take?

    I have a friend that is engaged a Pakistani Muslim. She's very much in love with this guy and he with her. This guy as much as a nice guy that he is is VERY attached to his religion, family and customs. This girl on the other hand has always been one of the most a-religious people I've ever known even though her father is a strong Catholic. They haven't even lived together yet and it seems like they won't even live together before marriage. She needs to try to at least see if he's the same person in private as he is with other people. But his family strongly opposes them living together before marriage. Why? Religion. They barely approve of her. Mostly because she's a platinum blond with huge earrings. Life with a Muslim isn't all that hard but life with a conservative Muslim or even a moderate Muslim can be if their families are heavily involved in their lives. This Catholic guy sounds like a prick in the way he voiced his opinion but to some extent he's right. Marrying anybody with any kind of heavily religious upbringing can bring a host of problems not just a Muslim.

    I have worked in a country where this is very true. Muslim men were allowed to marry Christian women (in this country Muslim men could marry more than one wife) and the children were expected to take the religion of the father i.e. Muslim. It was also clear in that country that Muslim women would not be allowed to marry outside their religion - and if they did they were either excluded or killed by their family.

    I'm not sure what the situation is in this country (the UK) but I have never met a Muslim woman married to a Christian or non-Muslim man who was still part of and involved with her family. There may be some around - would be interesting to see the numbers on this.

    I don't agree with any type of ban however I do think it's incredibly wise to warn women about how women are treated in the Muslim faith around the world.

    According to the Koran Muslim women aren't allowed to marry non-Muslim men, while men are allowed to marry non-Muslim women.

    It makes sense for Christianity to put the same limits on marriage unless Islam liberalize on the whole issue of letting Muslim women marry Christian men.

    It was a necessity back then when the wars occured, it is not a rule that muslim men must marry non muslims - It was a exception to the rule.
    A Muslim man above all must marry another Muslim.

    But on topic, my friend has married a Arab and she converted to Islam. I dislike this incorrect image that all Muslim men will stone a female.
    He treates her with the utmost respect and they love one another, so no. No ban should occur

    Muslim women marrying outside of their faiths does occur, i know many women who date non muslims.

    All American women should be required to marry Muslims for at least two years, so they learn to appreciate us more.

    Muslim women are not allowed to marry non-Muslim men according to the Qur'an, correct. Except Muslim men are allowed to only marry what is called People of the Book, or in a more broader sense - the Abrahamic religions.

    I'm not saying Muslim men don't sometimes marry Buddhists or Hindus, but according to the Qur'an this would not be allowed.

    Any woman should be allowed to marry whoever they want to.
    Islam maybe has some rules about this, though.
