  1. He says he does not believe in the practice of mutah. I, too, have high honor and faith and since I have spent most if my life in the East and not the US I do not think like most Americans. So popular idea or not to be with a Muslim, I accept responsibility for ALL of my actions and have never thought to "blame" others for anything I have done or will do. My apologies but I feel somewhat offended that you would suggest that I would do anything of the sort. This man means more to me than anyone's opinion of my actions. Only God can judge. But thank you for clarifying my thoughts more than anyone else has. I will continue down this path with this lovely soul who has chosen to walk with me for however long I am allowed his company and be grateful for it. I will enjoy his company for as long as God allows and realize that he has been put in my life for a reason, a reason that I should not question. I will wait for God's opinion as His is really the only one that matters in life and beyond.
  2. Because unfortunately most of my education involving Islam is based on Sunni. They call mutah something else. I am aware there are marriages between Islam and other people of the Book but was not sure if this was acceptable in Shia. I guess I am being a little...I don't know...I am worried that his feelings for me will lead him to some act that will not be acceptable. I probably shouldn't worry though. He seems of high honor and faith. Maybe my former husband was right when he would tell me to be quiet and look pretty because I was not smart enough to enter my opinions.
  3. I have been asking him. He is very open and supportive of my curiosity. This is one of the reasons I like him so much. He does not cut off my words or complain that I am being silly. My former husband was always telling me to be quiet and look pretty though he also said I was one of the most intelligent and educated people he knew. This man respects my curiosity and invites questions.
  4. Actually, it is far less about Jesus than it I'd about God.
  5. Thank you for your well wishes. I am beyond child bearing age. We both have children from previous marriages but they are adults themselves. I now have a granddaughter lol. Our parents are all deceased. We have no one to answer to except ourselves and God. I say I am Christian but that is in flux. My beliefs are I definitely believe in the Abrahamic God but I tend to see Jesus as a great man and Prophet but that there are also many other Prophets and great men that we should heed. Wisdom is wisdom so long as it doesn't stray from God. I tend to stay within the lines of service to others and keep my heart and thoughts pure and reflect on how God would have me handle each situation as it arises. I am highly educated with 3 degrees; Master of psychology; bachelors in history and religious philosophy so my views tend to be more toward understanding how spirituality affects humans in each situation. I hope this helps.
  6. I am a non-Muslim female. We are both of an age too old to have children together. Even if we could have children I would encourage them to follow their father in all things. I am not a typical Western woman. I am far more reserved in all ways. I have spent most of my life in the East so my thoughts are more Eastern when it comes to family and spirituality.
  7. Hello and thank you for accepting me here. I find myself in a different situation for myself and hope that I can find guidance here. I have met a Shia man who has caught my interest (which is very difficult to achieve!). He is funny, intelligent, attractive and patient. The feeling is mutual. we have known each other for quite some time and the feelings are becoming intense. My question is this: is marriage possible between a Shia and a non-Muslim? Please be kind in your response...
