Hi friends, Nowadays i think love marriages are most common AND people started encouraging those who are doing love marriage and they started to accept the intercaste marriages also. Do you allow your daughter to marry in some other religion leaving your religion. If you are following some religion will you be satisfied when your daughter marrying in other religion.

I will certainly not allow my son or daughter to marry outside my religion. For me my religion is everything. Since my daughter is already married, if my son, marries, somebody from other religion, she has to change to my religion, or it is the end of the relation ship between me and my son. I wonder why you have asked only about the daughter and not the son.Do you think that father or mother will have a seperate rule for the daughter and one for the son. No, both are equal to me.

hi rameshkumar , i asked the question for daughters only because if a girl marries a boy , in our indian society it is considered like the girl should follow the religion of a that boy only. But from the boy's side , he will be still in his religion only and allowed to follow the worshipping of his religion. It is like the boy is still considered to be in his religion only. But the girls are expected to worship her husband's religion and to leave their own religion. it is totally like they are to exit from their religion according to the society. that's why i had put this question for daughters and not for the sons. Ofcourse , apart from this i agree that all the daughters and sons are equal. By the way , thank you for your response

As long as the person that my daughter is going to marry is a good person, responsible and will not hurt my daughter then it will be alright with me. There is just one question that my daughter will have to answer and that is if she is truly happy with this person. If she is then by all means marry the person.

I dont force my kids to believe what I believe they are free to believe whatever they want to I have to agree with Galena above marrying someone of a different faith doesnt have to mean leaving your own religion I want my kids to be happy and if their future spouse treats them good and makes them happy then I dont care what religion they are

I am a Christian and my husband is Muslim... I never left my religion, in fact I've only grown stronger in it. It was a tough thing to put my parents through, especially my dad, but I think that has more to do with the discrimination Americans have against Muslims more than the fact that he was of a different religion. But once they got to know him they grew to love him and accept him. I don't try to convert him, and he doesn't try to convert me. It's all about respect.

That doesn't depend on religion, if he is good and can take care of my daughter I will not object that.

why would marrying someone of another religion mean leaving your religion? and if a man marries someone of another religion, is he leaving his religion too? of course not. religion is something you feel in the depths of your bones. you can't just decide to change it. either you believe it or you don't. if you told me up was down, I wouldn't believe you. even if we were married. my husband is loosely buddhist, and I'm Pagan. and we both still hold true to our beliefs and hold true to each other.

Hello friend, Here in my country this is just a natural thing(love marriages/intercaste and other races/foreigners,including religion matter) In India i know this is not a common thing since your culture and tradition is an arrange marriages. This really makes a big difference and i am sure not everyone has an open mind to accept the big changes in your society. But,this is happening now in this modern times...no religion,culture nor tradition is being spared for the global modernization. I know it's not easy my friend,but,sometimes we must admit the reality. There maybe lot of changes,advantages and disadvantages. It really sad that even cultures and tradition had to suffer for those changes. It would be better if we can preserve some of our traditions and cultures too. In my opinion,religion is not a big deal as long as my daughter will marry a man that believes in God and a good person.

Hi I did the same thing. I am Christian amrried to a Hindu and I did that.I won't mind my daughter marrying into otehr religion ,because I strongly feel that having a secular enviorment athome helps thans being a rigid one. As long as she finds a man of her virtue,education and she is of teh right age to marry i don't mind the relisgion factor.

I will allow my daughter or my son to marry anyone they choose, whatever their faith. I know perfectly happy, married people who are interfaith. People even conduct interfaith marriages now. As a person of faith, I don't think God cares if you marry someone who worships Him in a different guise or even if they don't worship at all. Love in a marriage is, I feel, God's number one priority.
