Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Reasonable answer from Luhx

Submitted by Luhx (United States), Jun 22, 2018 at 17:51

I never said that I have converted to Islam, but traditionally and this goes for many other religions.. It was considered normal that the child be raised as the husbands religion. I was speaking with this about my Aunt awhile ago who was born and raised in America and she said there was a time when even a Catholic woman would have to marry in her religion or face holy hell from her family.

In Islam a Muslim man can marry outside his religion as long as they are monotheistic. It is accepted because as tradition the children are married as the fathers religion. My husband, as I have said many times, is not very strict with his religion however, and would be more considered a "moderate" Muslim.

I myself am not very religious at all, though I was raised Christian. I want our children to have some sense of tradition and I believe Islam has a very good founation when taught without extremism of course. (AS WITH ANY RELIGION)

So, I hope that answers your questions in regards to my children being raised Muslim, although I myself am not Muslim and don't seek to become a Muslim.
