Relationship With A Druze In Australia?

Hi guys :)

I'm from Australia and I have been seeing this girl for quite a long time now. We are going out and we are crazily in love with each other. The thing is that I only found out until recently that her religion is Druze which I had no idea of until I researched on it.

We're not that old at all and she lives in Australia with her parents. She did tell me that her parents don't mind a whole lot who she can be with or what religion but she did say that there can be a lot of a negative impact from other families and friends within the religion.

Is it really that bad?? No one should have to chose religion over love. Every person can make their own decision and we wan't to be together. Right now we basically have to keep it a secret because she doesn't want her parents to know just yet.. Her friends know and they are also Druze but they all hate the fact that they have to marry someone in their religion.

I really wan't to be with this girl, and I know it isn't going to be an easy path to take. But would things work out in the end? Is it worth it?

Love is one of the most powerful things in the world and you shouldn't have to allow a religion to take part over that...

Love is temporary, only Gods love is eternal... but Ive been in this position it does suck

I absolutely agree. Emotional love is a temporarily burst of emotions that blinds both parts, when life starts rolling and day-to-day stuff becomes the standard, differences arise and distance grow, while each side diverges towards his/her original side.

As my previous said, only God's love is true and eternal.

I'm with you bro , do whatever you can :)
Religion is not everything !

In November last year it got really bad between us. I could barely see her. And she pretty much wanted to cut all strings with me because there was nothing that could happen between us. It was one of the hardest things in my life that I've had to deal with. I moved state ever since it happened. I just couldn't be close to her, if that makes sense. Although it took me a few months to get over it. We are still friends but we barely ever talk anymore. I try not to make the effort in talking to her at all because I don't like to be reminded. But it's a life lesson and I know that I won't ever date anyone who has strict religious rules within their family.

Ah well , maybe it is better for you , I'm in aus too :) I'm seeing a girl and she is druze , it does feel **** :(. Hope you will find your love and you're just 18 . Good luck

**** religion :)

I am 20 :) If you don't mind me asking, is it as complicated for you as it was for me? In regards to her family and all? And thank you :)

Well not complicated I guess , as I didn't get into relationship with her but I still like her :) . Her eldest brother doesn't seems to care about this religion thing and got her back , and her parents wanted to move back to Lebanon even though she born here and been lived in Australia for 18 years, she promised tho she will try to sneak back after half year :) . I just doesn't like how her parents want to get her into blind date . I told her you either choose a harder path for your life or live a regretful life and marry to someone you don't like .

Oh okay, I understand where you're coming from. It's a horrible feeling to have. And I don't know, I don't agree with their views in some ways especially when it comes to relationships. But I really wish you all the best and I hope that everything works out for you in the long run. She will have a harder life back in Lebanon.
