Recognise that the views of Muslim extremists do not reflect the views of other Muslims, and most Muslims are extremely peace loving men.
Mohamed Ali for instance was Muslim, and this is why he opted to be a conscientious objector during the war (and subsequently was stripped of his title).
However as a rule, a Muslim man is forbidden to date other than to find a spouse, so expect relationships to be taken very seriously.
Another aspect to consider is that if you are to marry a Muslim, he will likely very strongly push for children to be raised in the Muslim faith.
” First, whether a man has children of his own or not, there is nothing wrong with preferring to date women without children.
To many Western women this could be seen as hypocrisy and it is something that many will not be comfortable with.
Fortunately the majority of modern Muslims living in the West will opt to settle for just one, but again this is something that you will definitely need to discuss before dating you Muslim man.
However, there are a few things childless men should keep in mind when deciding whether they are ready to date a woman with a child, or children. Figure out if you like or want kids BEFORE dating a woman with children.
When you are single and looking to mingle, you generally will not hurt anyone if you start dating “just to see where things go.” Plenty of men do this all the time.
