Well Jane this is our culture , a lots of Arabic women got this experience and your hubbies too (include my self) nothing make us in danger , if i was married to European woman , sure my son must be circumsticed, he is a muslim , for the Christmas , we are in another country , all my friends ,neighbours celebrated this event and i will share the happiness with them by giving them my gifts , not really believe in, in the case i am in Tunisia sure not , no one celebrate the Christmas maybe the new year but no the xmas
Sure this is the muslim view...and your allowed to marry from different books...but the truth is if someone really would be deeply religious from another book - it would never fit hand in hand with the muslim point of view. The contrasts would be too HUGE....
People always say "oh Im not that religious" but when it comes a bit further...they might realize that the religious parts from growing up probably meant more than they thought. When the children arrives, they suddenly realizes that its a pretty big part of the culture too.
