I'm Muslim, & I'm in love w/ this guy who's Christian. We respect each other's religion and all, but that's not exactly what this is about.
I would have to give up my family to marry him bc they would disown me since they wanted me to have an arranged marriage.
They don't know about him yet, (they think we're just friends). & he doesn't know about this situation. He just thinks my parents are extremely strict. I'd have to give up everything I've ever known.
But I'm scared that when I tell him, he's going to freak out and think he's not worth this. He knows how much I love my parents, but I love him more.
I'm also scared that I'm not going to be happy. That I'm not going to like this American life style.
Do I just take a chance? Risk it all?

Marriage is, even in accordance with Islam a bond between a man and a women, not an alliance between parents.
The Bible even say:
Genesis 2:24 New International Version:
"That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh."
Note the leaves his father and mother part, when you marry you parents have no barring any more he becomes your new family.
If it's worth it, well only to can decide that. But it is YOUR choice not there's, YOUR life not there's.0
