Recently a very dear friend of mine, hooked up with a muslim guy. When I say recent, they've been going out for about 8 months. Now she is in a dilemma as this guy is getting quite serious about their relationship and as such, he is firstly, asking her to convert to Islam, told her he doesn't want her to go to the beach next summer and lastly, even before she goes down that horrid road of following this guy like some kind of slave and becoming a Muslim, the dickhead is insisting she wear a hijab. She told him she wants none of that in her life and he has told her he won't marry her if she doesn't conform. Her problem is that she really likes this guy, and is afraid she'll lose him if she doesn't accede to his wishes. I and many of my friends have told her, that if he really wants him, he will have to accept her the way she is or nothing. I'm seeing this awful trend lately of girls and women getting involved with guys from other cultures and then instead of staying true to themselves, are becoming nothing but victims male domination. This is only my view, but if a guy wants you, if any thing in these cross culture issues when the woman or girl is in her own country, the guy should be thinking about adopting her culture/religion. Not the other way around.
