I am Christian, from both Christian parents and grandparent. But I was born, raise and lived for 20 years in Muslim country. If father or husband is Muslim than future wife have to become Muslim, otherwise you can't get married and his kids of course automatically become Muslim.

On top of that, wife and daughters or any females have no rights even talking back to males, you will get beaten, so you have no voice or choice. Personally I was slapped lots of times, punished, even kidnapped for just trying to defending myself from Muslim men.

Kids, especially wife has no voice or choice against husband or father's wishes. It's how it was, has to be and will be if you marry Muslim man. It's how you were raised and don't even know how to live or act different or can't even understand how other people could be different.

Being surrounded by that culture for many years and being married to Christian for many years and living 10 years in USA, my husband calling me Muslim, even I have nothing Muslim in my blood, blond and blue eyes, believe in Jesus Christ, I am still think and act like Muslim women and find easier become friends and likable by people from Muslim backgrounds.
