lets be pragmatic here..functionally a muslim women probably should not marry a non muslim man.the thought should not be even entertained. In America the hearts of (black)christians tend to not be where they need to be. There is no compulsion in Islam and a person is taking chance in an interfaith marriage. how will you raise kids? will your "couf" husband or wife feed the kids pork?..Will your christian husband demand that you take your kids to church to worship the trinity. How would it feel if you know you may not be able to truly worship with your family...do you want your husband/wife to look on ignorantly as you make your salaat. You will make Hajj BY YOURSELF. You will give your Zakaat while your mate tithes a church. to much for me to swallow. A FAMILY THAT CAN PRAY TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER..in any religion.
