As a Muslim Arab American I feel that finding the "right person" tends to be hard...its hard to tie in both cultures and values and not forget above all Religion....I am wondering how many view this topic and if u have any positive feed back...
Yes it is true sister, but it is difficult everywhere. Similar is also true in Muslim countries. Keep the faith in Allah. *SABR * is the best practice what we can do.
Well it is not always true that intercultural and interracial marriages end up with divorce. Every marriage ends up with divorce if Husband and Wife do not want to compromise. I think marriage is the other name of COMPROMISE.
It is not easy to find someone these days, what if someone get married to an Arab or Pakistan or white person and few years later their marriage fell apart due to personality, cultural and racial differences. Intercultural & interracial marriages end up in divorce because husband & Wife can't compromise.
I got surprised for people saying it's difficult to compromise between values and cultures of the east and the west, with all respect to other people and their beliefs, I didn't find something compatible between Islam and western culture, I am not going to attend a party full of sins, booze and drunk people to please my colleagues and anger Allah (swt), I lived already in three different countries, I found my self happier once I am getting closer to Allah (swt).
We used to hear all the freakin' words down to earth, open minded from muslim in North America.
I hate the phrase down to earth - are you that low!!!
For sure I have to be adapted but not to compromise my religIon, it's really long discussion, but my conclusion is to abide to our religIon
