I have always known that there is a negative correlation between religion and my relationship with potential ladies. The first two girls that I pursued said no because I am not of the same faith. So my question is, is it *really* religion or is that just an excuse or a polite way to say no? Does religion really matters in a relationship? Are people *that* staunch and narrow minded as not to be open to accepting a person of a differing faith (or no faith)? Loochoomus is not a Christian but his wife is. So what does that say? To my blog readers who are of Christian faith (or any other faith, eg Buddhism, Muslim, etc) , please give your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks :)
One of my principles in life is that I will not convert to a particular faith because of a girl. I mean, it is doing it for all the wrong reasons and I will never be able to bring myself to stoop so low. What is the use of saying that you will accept her religion but deep in your heart you know you are doing it because you want to woo her? It's so fake and insincere. Matters of faith are important to me and I do not fool around with it.
Since we are in this topic, I will tell you something I learned from Egypt. From my conversation with Mido, it seemed that things were different in Egypt than in Malaysia. There, a Muslim man could marry a Christian woman (or any other religion) without the woman converting to Islam. The only condition is that their children had to follow the father's faith. This is new to me because in Malaysia, the only way a Muslim man can marry non-Muslim is if the woman convert to Islam.
However, the same is not true for a woman in Egypt. A Muslim woman must marry a Muslim man. Chauvinistic? Very much... ha ha ha. Miloflamingo talked about it here and here.
