I would like to know your views if the situation was vice versa... I mean a girl is Sikh and the boy is of any other religions. What are your views then ?

It would be too impractical for raising children. For example, you marry a Hindu girl and she wants the kids to learn and practise her religion, would you then tell the kids to go and bow to idols in the Mandir and then Guru Ji in the Gurudwara? Might be too confusing for them I think.
Well what I think is there is nothing in your story that make me feel that you are bad in defination of sikhism . and I agre with you that sikhism is all accepting in term of gender , race, religion ...Because I have the intention of being with this man for the rest of my lives, and because I want to have children with him, am I a bad person by definition of sikhism? Is that faith not accepting of all? Does it not encourage equality between genders? Is it not accepting of other religions?
Our children will not be confused: the only reason why children would be confused is if their parents did not teach their child about all the faiths from an early age. There is an abundance of culture out there, why not give your child the gift of knowledge? My children will know about my ancestors' heritage, as will they know about the history of their father's ancestors. If you look deep down inside, we all have the same red liquid running through our veins, we are all the same. It is up to people, as indivduals and as groups, if they want to assign labels to others.
