Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: No want to be harsh but...

I have been talking to a younger, not young, Muslim man from the middle east who asked me to marry him after just a few weeks of friendship. We became romantic very quickly, and I am older, divorced, and have children that are grown.

I have done things for him because there was need, not because he asked. But he let his needs be known in conversation. I have been asked to go visit him in Pakistan, and then he will come visit me here. I told him I would not marry him, and we continued being involved for several weeks, when I asked him to marry me. So we are engaged.

He has sent me gifts, and has been very attentive. But I am not a virgin, I am not muslim, and I told him i could not give him children and I have been divorced twice. He said his family was very modern, and that this would not be a problem. He also asked me to live there with him and his family.

But after reading this, I'm confused. Is this a mistake? He is intelligent, funny, and always talks about my comfort. I don't know what to think...
