    What about things like circumcision?

    Abrahamic faiths are pushy. I reckon Hinduism/Sikhism would fall to the wayside in that sort of relationship as they are more passive.
    Yeah, we don't do circumcision, it has no basis in our culture.

    That's where everything just goes messed up as I would want my children to be raised as Muslims. However, that would not work out as if I marry a Hindu/Sikh guy he would want them to be raised as Hindus.
    arent u muslim and female? If so your not allowed to marry anyone outside of islam full stop sorry to say, lets be real here its best to commit to a muslim partner

    The personality in general. I have a lot of Punjabi friends, trust me they're hilarious. In fact my used to be best friend was Punjabi. Also, the weddings are so hyper, I love it. You have to practically drag a guju to dance..
    Oh thanks! I love our weddings too. I have some gujurati friends who are pretty mad too, I guess it depends who you find.

    And that's something I couldn't compromise on, because being Hindu is what makes me, me. The way I was raised, being Hindu wasn't just a religion, it was a culture, a way of life. My parents aren't religious, but we live Hindu lives... Not sure if you'll understand...
    No I completely understand you as Islam is a way of life for me too. It makes me me too. Its understandable. But I believe my children shouldn't be forced into a religion just because they were born Muslims. And that would remain the same if I marry a Muslim guy and my children wants to convert to Christianity, I'd be okay with it as its their own choice.

    You wouldn't be saying that if you saw my cousin's wedding earlier last year - everyone was eager for it to start Lmao
    Don't get me wrong all of the weddings I've been to in India have always been lively but the weddings I've attended in this country are 6/10 dead.

    I am a Muslim female, Alhumdullilah. I'm pretty sure I'll end up marrying a Muslim male and that would be my first choice too. However, I wouldn't mind marrying a Hindu/Sikh if I emotionally click with him.

    I'm talking about a wedding in this country, but yeah I kinda see what you mean. We do need a lot more persuading (by usually a Punjabi DJ) to get on to the dance floor.

    I think it's actually forbidden in Sikhism.

    True but I find Dharmic texts and cultures more passive in general.

    Of course, but tbh you should forget about marrying emotionally if you dont share the same faith as it will cause some conflict which also could lead emotional and internal conflict, unless they'd be willing to convert.

    Yup not part of Hinduism either.

    Dharmic faiths are more about a personal journey where nothing is fixed - you're allowed to think for yourself.

    It's because they are. I've mentioned earlier that Hinduism isn't just a religion. It's a culture, a faith, a way of life. You can be religiously, idk Zoroastrian, yet live a Hindu lifestyle. There aren't really any rules. haha

    Yeah I see your point. But tbh I would never want a guy to convert just for me. I think that's extremely unfair to him and ridiculous. If I ever like a Hindu/Sikh/Christian guy it would not be because of his religion but rather because of him. Hence, wouldn't want him to change his religion just to be me with and neither would I ever change my religion just for him. I guess if two people really love each other, they can compromise on that.
