Hello there, I'm in the process of writing a work of fiction (as part of my degree) set in the UK, involving a young Muslim woman and a young Sikh man who fall in love and embark upon a relationship. The young woman becomes pregnant and the story is set over the course of her pregnancy, following her life as she tries to work out where she stands in respect to her culture, the culture of her baby's father, the society around her, and herself. I am neither Sikh nor Muslim, but I grew up in a UK city with plenty of Sikh and Muslim friends. I wondering about not only the issues surrounding an interfaith relationship, but also the more common difficulties young Asian Brits experience in feeling as if they straddle two cultures which are often in opposition to one another - the culture of their religion and the culture of the country in which they have grown up. I have spent a long time researching on the internet and have not found much positivity regarding successful interfaith relationships. Could there conceivably be a situation in which a relationship between a Muslim girl and a Sikh boy, where the girl has become pregnant whilst unmarried, is eventually accepted by everyone involved, including their families? I would really hope it is possible for a young couple such as this to find acceptance. I have seen so much suspicion and hostility and misunderstandings between people in what was previously a pretty harmoniously multicultural city, and I want to be able to visualise a situation where there is, for a few individuals, love and respect and, eventually, understanding and compromise. As well as direct responses to the plausibility of my idea, I would welcome any information or thoughts about interfaith relationships in general! Cheers in advance.
