Dating pakistani guy
Generally, adult kids get along fine with their parents (unlike a lot of American families), so there's not a problem.
In those cultures, the American custom of moving out of the house after finishing HS or college seems deviant.
If you can't handle an intercultural experience and be flexible, move on.
I am just VERY independent and I value independence in a man.
Islam allows Muslim men to date outside of the faith.
In fact, it is often encouraged as it is believed that the woman will convert to Islam.
I have a close friend whose dad is from India who has a similar background to your guy who is as American as you get.
This is why you see so many stories in forums about Muslim men dating Christian women.There is a lot of debate about whether it is halal or haram for Muslim women to date outside of the faith.The general conservative opinion is that it is forbidden, since the faith is passed down through the man.If the Muslim man does not tell his parents (or at least friends) about you within the first year of the relationship, then just walk away.He is just using you until he can find a “good Muslim girl” to marry.
And the guy is probably saving his money for the eventual home purchase upon marriage.
