I’m a Muslim & I’m deeply in love with a Christian girl & she also feels the same way about me. We both have tried to let go but all efforts proved abortive. The problem is that nobody wants to change religions, especially her because of pressure from her family& friends. I really love her & would love to spend the rest of my life with her. What should we do? Our only obstacle now is religion.
I can imagine how it feels to love someone so much and have something minor stand in the way. However, if no one compromises, religion can be a very big obstacle. I wish I could tell you to go ahead and marry her but if both your families are at war, it could put undue strain on you both.
However, if you decide that you can put up with the challenges and stand by each other no matter what, then you can go ahead and marry her because marriage is first and foremost about the husband and wife. If you cannot cope with both your families being against you, then I suggest you say your goodbyes. I wish you both all the happiness in the world.
