    Hi , iv been dating a muslim boy for nearly three years and I'm non mulsim , I don't follow no religion but since being with him and his family I have grown to adapt and really take in there religion and respect it to , for last three years I haven't seen him when he is fasting that I have accepted and his parents have asked for me to go to te mosque before the fasting begins which I have agreed to but not sure why. And felt rude to ask ! I know some muslims believe that a muslim being with a non muslim is not allowed but we do truly love eachother and spoke about marraige and I don't think his family would of accepted me if they didn't think that

    I'm a little confused as to what you need help with.
    As for other Muslims finding it unacceptable that you two are together - who cares? As long as you're happy, you shouldn't give a damn what they think.
    That said, you need to really think about yourself now, and what you want from this relationship, as well as what your boyfriend wants. You mentioned that you want to get married - is he perfectly fine with that? is he aware of the possibility that you don't want to be a Muslim? Do his family seem set on converting you into Islam, and are you OK with that? If not, then that puts him in quite a bit of a difficult position - he'd have to choose, essentially, between his family or you.
    In essence, there really is no point asking this on TSR - you need to have a serious talk with him about your future together, and what you expect to gain from your relationship.
