Study Break

Taking a study break.
Why?
Why do I want to run with the wild horses?
Because wild horses are beautiful and free.
Why do I not have an ipod?
Because you never wanted one because you were so anti-Apple until now.
Why do I have a green phone?
Because you're super cool and that's your favorite color.
Why am I writing this?
Because studying for exams and writing papers are driving you crazy.
Why have I unusually not gotten a cold all winter?
Because... who knows just because
Why is Jos on my mind?
Because helpnigeria.blogspot.com

Hmm so let me share my thoughts for a second. If a Muslim and a Christian get married, how exactly will the wedding be planned. Has anyone attended a Muslim/Christian wedding? Would there have to be two weddings like one in a church and one in a mosque? Do Muslims even have their weddings in a mosque? I've never been to one so I don't know. Is it possible for an interfaith marriage to work? What if the bride and groom have the same culture and they truly love each other?
Well I gotta go. I'm writing this in a library and my friend just came. I like having this be my space. I'm not worried about anything I've written on here but I still like it being my space. Peace and Love.

  1. Depending on how they want it, it will either be at a mosque or church. Or they could have it at a church and the imam says a few prayers and vice versa. Muslims do a ceremony called Nikkai. It is possible for interfaith marriage to work, if they are both not strong in their faith or if they agree to raise their children in one religion. Everything i wrote above is nullified by the fact that this world has no answers for certain things just that everything has a 50/50 chance.

  2. Why are you writing this?
    because you want someone to read it. lol

    The wedding would probably hold in the place of worship of the wive's religion or as decided by the couple. It can also be influenced by the brides parent. Muslims have their marriages in the mosque and I have seen interfaith marriages work.
    Are you considering that? lol

  4. Aww who is anti-apple?
    Especially in a boring place. I don't know what life would be like without my iPod you know. Those times when you're just about to die of boredom or when you want to shut the world out because they are slowly killing your senses.

    Some boy I know said his brother got married to a Christian and they did a mosque thingie but also got married in a church.
    it's a thing of what you and your family believe and a thing of the mind.
    can't really say.

  9. It is usually a Nikkai that is done both ways. if the guy is a muslim, the christian bride has to do the Nikkai, but she might also have a church wedding, but she has to have a Nikkai.
    If the bride is the muslim,her parents still get to give out in a Nikkai. If they dont angree on the religious part, they go to the registry.
    I have seen intermarriage that works but both couple are usually not religious or attached to their particular religion.

  10. My Maternal Aunt (Christian) and Uncle (Sunni Muslim) were Married in a Civil Service at the courthouse. My Cousin was raised as a Seventh Day Adventist Christian Muslim. (Yeah)

    Muslims are told by the Quran to respect the "Book" and the People of the Book. This like everything can be hard to do sometimes when you have a deeply held belief and concept of how you see God (IAM/YWH/Allah/Jesus)

  14. Funny enough this whole muslim/christian wedding is an on-going drama with one of my aunts. She was raised muslim but her man is from a hardcore Baptist (I think) family so the mum (as domineering mothers-in-law do) is putting her foot down for a church wedding. They both want to forgo religious ceremonies and get married in a registry instead. I think that's the fairest way because we all know that saying vows before a religious cleric doesn't guarantee happy married life. Seen enough Christian "weddings" that didn't become Christian "marriages" to know that.
