Dear Sabiha Apu
This is Reshma from Rajshahi.  I am in a relationship for last 5 years. The man is very gentle and understanding. But problem is religion. I am Hindu and he is muslim. This is the perfect time for us to get married. But it is mandatory for me to convert into Muslim, which I don't want. His family is pressurizing me. My parent will never accept me If I become Muslim.  Sometimes I feel like I did a blunder loving a muslim man.  But It is also not possible for me to leave him. Can you please suggest me what to do?

Dear Reshma,
It is so appreciative that you have shared your personal issue to us. I am sure you are not perceiving religion as a problem. Otherwise you could not maintain this relationship so long. The problem is something different. Not even the relationship I must mention. Because there is something in your relationship with him that drive you to be with this relationship. It is not an issue for you only. You both can talk to each other and discuss about how to proceed for the next step of your relationship.  You did not mention your age. You can talk with your parents also. Intention is not to accept this relationship rather for sharing your current condition of your relationship to them.
