A marriage is not when a perfect couple comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy the differences. We are not trying to endorse nor are against inter-religion marriages.

This is the most interesting part of marrying a guy of another religion. Ideally, the marriage ceremony might take place according to his tradition. This is exciting for you, your family and relations.
