After a slow start, the discussion took off and now has 17,000 comments, or about four a day.
I believe this to be a premier website for this topic. Daniel Pipes.org, about one in eighteen comments on the website are on this page.
I will apologize in advance for my lengthy questioning.
I am a Christian woman who just recently married a Muslim man.
I told him I don’t know how an Islamic divorce actually works, so I will handle the legal documents from the state, and he can handle the Islamic part, but I don’t think he even knows how to go about that.However, civil, interfaith and same-sex marriages entered into abroad are recognised by the state.Under the Ottoman Empire all matters of a religious nature and personal status, which included marriage, were within the jurisdiction of Muslim courts and the courts of other recognized religions, called confessional communities, under a system known as Millet.I should probably state that we have only been married for four months.I married him two weeks after he was released from prison, because he said that he could not live with me if we were not married.
