I am a Arab girl born in Palestine in Jordan and I am married to my husband who is Hispanic and African American. I am Muslium and he is Christian. My parents disowned me for marrying outside of my religon and his mom really did not like him marrying a women that is not Christian. My mom also dislikes black and mexican people and his mom thinks all arabs are terrorists and that I am going to get him killed. When we decided to get married it was all based off of love and all that we have been through as a couple. We both strongly believe in God and constantly pray and always put Him first. Isn't that all that should matter?
I know that my marriage with my husband is going to last versus a marriage to an Arab guy that is approved by my parents. If you were/are Muslium and you fell in love with someone outside of your religion would you stay with the guy/girl or leave them to please your parents? We even talked about our kids that we are going to have in the future and agree that they are going to be born in a world of different cultures and religions. Isn't that the best life you can give a child? My husband and I think are children are going to understand people of different races and religions a lot better than other kids. I am curious to know your opinions. Also when I say we are in love I don't mean it in a childish manner like dating in high school. I mean serious commitment, dedication, and passion.
