Marry a Muslim

Now, quite often, girls on the forums write “I’m look­ing for a Mus­lim hus­band”, con­sid­er­ing Mus­lim guys a more prof­itable par­ty — reli­gion for­bids them to drink alco­hol, and fam­i­ly is a sacred con­cept for them. But is it real­ly so good in Mus­lim fam­i­lies? Sure­ly there are some pecu­liar­i­ties here.

Muslim husband, Christian wife

Many ladies are inter­est­ed in whether it is pos­si­ble for a Chris­t­ian woman to mar­ry a Mus­lim, will the wife be oblig­ed to accept anoth­er faith? Accord­ing to the laws of Islam, a Chris­t­ian woman may not renounce her faith, but she will not be able to raise a child in Chris­tian­i­ty — he will have to become a Mus­lim. You also need to remem­ber that par­ents in Mus­lim soci­ety are very respect­ed, and there­fore their word is often equat­ed with the law. And if the par­ents are cat­e­gor­i­cal­ly against the Chris­t­ian bride, then the man is more like­ly to break off the rela­tion­ship than to argue with his par­ents.

Marrying a Muslim — features of a Muslim family

Often women think about how to mar­ry a Mus­lim, and not about how they will live with him. In order to get to know a Mus­lim, there are no spe­cial prob­lems — if domes­tic ones are not sat­is­fied, then you can look for them on vaca­tion or in uni­ver­si­ties that accept for­eign stu­dents, as well as on the Inter­net. But before turn­ing away from men of your reli­gion, think about whether you can fol­low all the rules of a Mus­lim fam­i­ly. There are the fol­low­ing fea­tures and not for every woman they will be accept­able. Of course, it all depends on peo­ple, but it’s worth being pre­pared for such moments:

  1. Do not care about the ques­tion of how a girl should behave with a Mus­lim guy, because your cho­sen one is an “advanced” per­son? Do not rush to judge. Often Mus­lims for­get about some rules and cus­toms away from their fam­i­lies, but when they return home, all of them are imme­di­ate­ly remem­bered. There­fore, first get to know his par­ents, watch him in his “native ele­ment”. If noth­ing both­ers you, great. But if you notice a strong adher­ence to tra­di­tions, be pre­pared that after they­ou will be oblig­ed to hon­or them.
  2. The word of a hus­band is law for his wife; she has no right to dis­obey. Nev­er­the­less, hus­bands lis­ten to what their wives advise them, although they have the final say.
  3. To please the hus­band and to man­age the house­hold are the main duties of the wife. Per­mis­sion to go to work must be asked from her hus­band, and at the same time, no one will remove house­hold chores from a woman.
  4. Mus­lim wives should please the eye of their hus­band, not oth­er men. There­fore, all jew­el­ry and the body will need to be hid­den under clothes and low­er your eyes when meet­ing with oth­er men. This rule applies to Mus­lim women, but the hus­band can also demand this from a Chris­t­ian wife, espe­cial­ly if you live in a Mus­lim soci­ety.
  5. Also, a woman should not refuse her hus­band inti­ma­cy except for the days of men­stru­a­tion, after child­birth, dur­ing ill­ness or Hajj.
  6. The wife also has no right to leave the house with­out the con­sent of her hus­band. In addi­tion, you will have to learn how to walk silent­ly and not enter some­one else’s house with­out the per­mis­sion of your hus­band.
  7. Mus­lims have the right to have up to 4 wives if they have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pro­vide for them all and they are sure that they will be treat­ed equal­ly. Although hus­bands, of course, con­sult with the first wife about whether she is against the sec­ond wife. And, I must say, now polygamy is not as com­mon as it used to be, how to marry a muslimand basi­cal­ly there are rea­sons for this — for exam­ple, the infer­til­i­ty of the wife, a seri­ous ill­ness, etc. In any case, this point is best dis­cussed before the wed­ding.
  8. Please note that Mus­lim hus­bands have the right to pun­ish their wives for per­sis­tent dis­obe­di­ence. But phys­i­cal pun­ish­ment is an extreme mea­sure, it should not leave marks on the body, and if so, then the woman has the right to demand a divorce.
  9. In the event of a divorce, the Chris­t­ian woman most like­ly will not be able to take the child, because accord­ing to Mus­lim laws, if the wife is not a Mus­lim, the chil­dren remain with the father.

Per­haps these rules seem com­pli­cat­ed and incom­pre­hen­si­ble to a non-Mus­lim woman. But on the oth­er hand, in the per­son of a Mus­lim hus­band who hon­ors his reli­gion, you will receive a faith­ful, devot­ed, hon­est, sym­pa­thet­ic fam­i­ly man with excel­lent moral qual­i­ties and with­out addic­tion to alco­hol, who will love you and chil­dren, hon­or your rel­a­tives and will not inter­fere with you in observ­ing your reli­gion.
