Hi laura.i am lorraine.i dont know if you read my story titled 'dont know what to do'. if so i would appreciate some feedback from you. in regards your story i think you should be very very careful. i know you love this man with all your heart i understand how you feel. but do you really want to live with and marry a man that will not meet you half way on this. he should be taking your feelings into account.

you have met him half way by agreeing to convert which i feel you should think very hard about before doing so. i would not convert for any man and its not because i'm religious or anything. its because everyone is their own person and it was you as the person you are that this man fell in love with so he should not want you to change.

also i think its very possible for people of different religions to be together as they are. i myself am just worried of the muslim culture as i dont really know so much about it and after reading stories of this site i am starting to have my doudts. i dont know about you but i would not be happy if i had a daughter and she grew up not allowed to marry out of the muslim religion especially when it would be ok for me and her father to marry.i think this would be very unfair.

i hope this helps you laura.please dont settle for second best because you are worth the best and deserve to be truly happy.
