Dear Dr Pipes,

Western and non-Muslim women should take a page from President Trump's book: the must do extreme vetting when they entertain the idea of a Muslim husband. Does he see the differences between western and his way of life? Does he admire the western ways or his purpose is to marry you and then change you? Does he lover Islam? In that case, does he also love polygamy, apostasy, Q5:33 (that recommends very cruel and unusual punishments for anyone who challenges Allah)? Does he believe in freedom of thought (it is important because he will raise your children)? Does he belive in democracy (this is important because you might end up living with him in a country where minority rights are considered to be an unnecessary luxury)?

A marriage is a union of two cultures. Will you marriage to a Muslim will define a two-way exchange of ideas or one way compulsory transition of ideas?
