Ramadan and dating
And, if she did manage to meet a non-Muslim man, would she be able to overcome the social pressures which have been put upon her since birth and decide to date the guy?One thing you will notice is that Muslim women are more likely to date outside their faith as they get older.The more pertinent question though is how a Muslim woman would even meet a man outside the faith.
The general conservative opinion is that it is forbidden, since the faith is passed down through the man.
Everyone is part of a family, a people group, and/or a community.
Decisions are made as groups, not individuals and pressure is put on by families.
While men have their own social and cultural problems to bear (I would never want the responsibility that comes with being a first-borne Muslim son! They aren’t going to be judged as harshly for dating outside the Muslim faith, or for dating at all.
This is why you see so many stories in forums about Muslim men dating Christian women.
