Dating another faith
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
i need advice for my friend "j", last term he started seeing a muslim girl at our school, however as he isn't a muslim they had to keep a low profile. however one of her brothers saw them together and the her parents hit the roof. she has moved schools now however they are dating again in secret. this is really affecting my friend "j" and he spending loads calling her and trying to visit her, he has even started bunking school to see her during the day as her parents cant find out.i wanted to email to ask if there is anything he can do to improve the situation. i know her parents feel very strongly about her dating a non muslim and dont like the idea at all.
what can be done?please help i don't know what to suggest at all.im worried for my friend as he says he loves her.
thankyou for your time. i would be really grateful if you offered some advice on the subject.
My advice to "J" is to either stop seeing the girl or to tell her parents about it. This advice is very hard to follow, I know. But, he is trying to break an age old problem-- interfaith relationships. What if her parents find out? She will be in for a lot of trouble. Is that what he wants for her?
If he approaches her parents, the same thing is likely to happen, but at least he will have been open and honest.
His skipping school is only going to make matters worse as both his parents and hers will not be happy with that. He needs to stay with school and do well. Parents will respect that.
Having said all this, I would like to make it clear that I have no problem with interfaith romances-- however, they are VERY difficult to manage.
Best wishes to your friend,
