He should be willing to wait all the way until marriage if that’s what you want him to do.Sexting and early physical advances are huge red flags that show he isn’t serious at all. There’s no stigma in going online and letting your friends/family know you’re looking. Not all of us will meet our future spouse at a coffee shop by chance or at a party or through work/school.Neither is tempting as the former could result in being disowned, and the latter in a serious drinking problem.I have dated Muslims and nothing extraordinary has happened as a result.
Ezzeldine says that the high interfaith marriage rates should be a “wakeup call” for the community. (WOMENSENEWS)– Munira Ezzeldine, a marriage counselor in Irvine, Calif., who is one of the instructors of a premarital course, tells me that Islam in America is at a “kind of crossroads now.” She explains, “We don’t have something called dating in the Western context, you know with pre-marital sex and all the stuff that comes with it.” But young Muslims are also not interested in having arranged marriages as their parents and grandparents did.“They actually want to get to know the person for a certain amount of time, but also within the boundaries.” If a young Muslim is aiming for this kind of compromise, there are other resources too.The European law would guarantee her and her husband protection and might even prevent the father from seeing his daughter for a long time.Prudence is the most appropriate way to follow in treating this problem; the father is to wisely try to convince his daughter of the wrongness of her action in the Islamic point of view and show her his concern for her sake in that regard.
