I read that it is permissable for a muslim man to get married to a christian or jewish woman - is this allowed in South Africa.
If yes then how would we get married according to muslim customs and processes, in court or how? I see his family every week and I attend all gatherings. He has told me that it might be a problem and we might not end up together because I am not Jewish.

I believe its true for all religions and not just Christians.
I say the same thing to my non-practicing Muslim friends - date and marry a non-practicing Muslim boy/girl. It didn't think how important the spirituality would be years ago - but now after many years of marriage I tell you that it is even more important than love.
Anyway, life with my Persian Prince has been absolutely wonderful, perhaps not perfect, but still wonderful.
I believe any relationship should have the common ground of faith to build upon.
JC - I am Christian and my husband is also a Christian.
I would have not date him or get close to him if he wasn't a Christian because Bible teaches us not to yoke with a non-believers.
I have told him that I would convert and I have embraced his culture and his family, but it doesn't seem to be enough. He wants the relationship to keep going but he says there are no guarantees. On the other hand, he know that he will need his family and he knows that his family will not be at ease with a catholic girl. You can speak the language and learn the culture and cook better than his mom - you will never be PERSIAN.
The other night he told me he didn't want to hurt me in the future because he wasn't sure if it would ever work out between us. He called his parents to tell them how much he loved me, they told him I was a sweet girl but not to get too attached because it isn't right to end up with someone from such a different religion/culture. In the past he told me that if religion was our only issue, he wouldn't let it ruin us in the long run. I have heard this before from my Persian friend's mother as well as my Japanese friend's mother - "My son, go have your fun with this nice and sweet "non Persian" or "non Japanese" girl and when you are ready we'll find you a nice "Persian" or "Japanese" wife".
Does this difference in religions impact the relationship?
Name = Marilyn Years Married = Number of Children = 2 Country & City = South Africa, Cape Town Subject = need advice I have been in a relationship with a muslim man for more than 3years and we have a child together.
Same faith marriages build on a solid foundation..you mix the religions, this foundation becomes shakey at best.
