If you did get married, does he expect you to stay home?

If you really don't like his family and his traditional life style then that will definitely be a road block for your future.

I also think that it maybe isn't a fair decision, because after a short visit you probably weren't even over your culture shock enough to decide if you liked it or not.

He does want the baby to be Muslim ( in a relaxed sense) and I am unsure.

Im a non practicing Catholic but I dont particularly like the ethos of Islam especially the status of women, which would be particularly important were I to have a daughter. I'm just gonna state the obvious and say this was stuff you shoulda thought about before getting pregnant.

I've been living in Morocco for nearly three years and it took me at least a full year to really start loving it. We have been married and living together for 4 years. I'm Catholic but our children will be raised Muslim.

I don't think that the status of women in Islam has to be negative at all, in my case, I find that women are cherished, loved, and respected, more so than in many other families. We spent A LOT of time discussing our values and plans for our future long before we go married.

So I can't say much about how it's actually worked out living together.

But he knows for a fact I don't do stay at home mom.

I've heard people say we would never make it this far because we are so different culturally and religiously. There will be differences for sure but if you're willing to work hard then I don't see why things wouldn't work out. We spent A LOT of time discussing our values and plans for our future long before we go married.
