Hmmm.
Can't imagine why she's "not in any airline yet"?


Anyway, regarding the original question, with love, tolerance, respect and the will to make things work, differences can be overcome. In fact, differences can be a strength. Been married well over 27 years now.

Works for different religions, too.
Had a Catholic colleague that married a Malay woman.
Of course he had to "convert" for the marriage.
They're happy after many years.


why she's "not in any airline yet"... Any recommandation from U... 8-)
Btw Thanks for ur replies like it...

Des, i think most of the posters want to tell you two things:

1. your level of english is shit
2. they pride themselves on showing others tolerance and respect.

it's good to know things really can work out between different religion.
so in Singapore, in order to marry a malay girl, one have to convert? guess it's pretty much the same as in Malaysia. since u have a good example up there. i was wondering, when your colleague convert, does the family member ok with it? (for both side of course)
been thinking about this alot lately. will the family approve? how about the practices, childrens etc .

thanks :)

It is not about where you marry a Muslim, it is religion specific.

If you marry a Muslim you need to convert.

I know if you want the marriage to be recognized in a Muslim country you have to convert which includes circumcision, if not already done, but what happens if you marry a Muslim say in the UK, via a civil service do you have to convert? I don’t think the question of what religion are you even cropped up when we got married.

As far as I know Muslims don't marry via a civil service. However, I do know the UK doesn't recognize Muslim weddings, Muslims must first register, no quite sure what happens afterwards.

The question of marrying someone from a different race doesn't include religion.
Muslims, Christians, Animists, Jews, Buddhists etc... can all be the same race.

Difference race? As long as there's mutual attraction, why not? :) Most of my friends are in relationships with people of different races.
