Choosing someone to be with forever is difficult, most especially if you guys have different religious backgrounds. I am a Roman Catholic and my boyfriend is a Muslim. At first, this does not seem to be a problem for the both of us, but when we reached the age of maturity, when it’s time to settle down and form a family, conflict arose between us. For some reason, a Muslim is prohibited to marry someone outside from their denomination, unless his or her partner is baptized under Islam practices.

Because of this, I don’t know if we should settle with this or find another way to achieve legal union. Meanwhile, a foreign marriage advisor also stated that whatever principles you have doesn’t matter, as long as love and understanding are present, then everything should be fine. However, I also want our family to be united even just for this single event. And I certainly don’t want to be converted to Islam just to get married with him. What do I choose? Love or religion?

That's a difficult one in which you can only make a decision. I'm not a religious person but if it were me, I'd most certainly choose love.

You can't help who you love and I think that love in itself is a very powerful thing in which we don't fully understand the meaning of!

Hope you get this sorted, keep us in the loop @LiezelZoe29 !

This is a hard decision. Do you think you could live as a happy family while both sticking to your beliefs? if this is not an option than you must ask yourself if you will find someone you will love more than him who resonates with your religion. if you truly believe that he is the one, than I would say be with him, however I don't think you should be put in a position of converting yourself for a man. If he loves you, he wouldn't tell you "we can only marry if your muslim" even if its his religion, if he would not change for you, don't change for him. I know my opinion is pretty in the middle, but I hope my statement helps a bit!
