The relationship has finally ended -- the issues could not be resolved, and I am relieved I did not marry him.
I do not think I would be happy coming "second" to his family.
Anyway, life with my Persian Prince has been absolutely wonderful, perhaps not perfect, but still wonderful.
I believe any relationship should have the common ground of faith to build upon.
I would appreciate the advice as we really love each other, I have no problem raising my kids in the muslim religion Iam just personally not in a space to make that decision for myself. I love this man with all of my heart and I know he loves me the same. JC, It seems that he is the problem not his family.
Please help., Marilyn Hi, I am on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I met my Persian Jewish boyfriend two years ago and we started dating about 6 months ago. He has told me that he sees himself marrying me and that it scares him because of the cultural differences. I don't even know if I can be the same towards him and his family knowing that they don't want him to end up with me. It seems he needs his family's approval otherwise he would follow his heart.
Just my 2 cents, Laila Name = Violet Country & City = USA, California Category of Submission = Religeous Issues Subject = Thank you ladies -- I have broken up with my Iranian Jewish Boyfriend of 18 months My boyfriend and I were together for about a year and a half.
This site helped me see that I was not alone in my pain, confusion and frustration.
What has enables us to stay together thru hard times and ups & downs is our shared spiritual belief.
So, take some time, think about it, pray about it, consult with your close catholic friends, your priest, ...
He wants me to convert to the muslim religion before he we can get married.
