We have some friends whose eldest son is in a long term relationship with a muslim girl he met whilst both studying architecture at university.

Her parents are Afghan refugees, her father a lecturer and her mother a doctor. Both have absolutely no idea about the fact that their daughter is in a relationship with Martin, let alone has lived with him for 5 years. She is absolutely terrified of telling her parents such is the depth of their feelings about relationships outside their community. When they visit he has to move out and every vestige of his existence has to be removed from their flat.

He is distraught but puts up with it because he loves her so much. So sad in this day and age.

A perfect martini should be made by filling a glass with gin, then waving it in the general direction of Italy.

Never argue with an idiot......they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

I don't have children, but i know that i wouldn't mind at all.

My family is made up of different religions, and that works fine - no problems there.

Of course I would not mind. The thought that someone would is scary to me.

My daughter married a scotch man and it took me some time to get used to his accent.
He loves her so that's all that matters.

That is very sad ... and stressful, for your son Ivor, and such a shame. But I’m sure within certain communities, still happening.

I wouldn’t mind if either of my children had married a person of a different race ...my advice to them would have been to know each other very well first (advice to anyone) but also to know the family and any family ties very well...one doesn’t just marry the person....one ‘marries’ the whole family often. ...

I actually went out with an Indian girl back in the late 70's who was a friend of a friend but we had to keep it a secret because she said if her father found out she was dating me he would kill me so I think we are sometimes too relaxed and unaware of the other sides families culture and beliefs. You often hear of a different race partner running back to their own country with the child and the heartache that brings.

Who cares so long as they love one another and care for each other. If anyone does mind they are living in prehistorical times
