Title:Interracial / Interreligion relationship among second generation Muslims in America
Subject(s):Relationships, Muslims in America, American Culture, Interracial Relationship, Interreligion Relationship
Abstract:Do religious views and culture affect second generation Muslims’ views on dating? Second generation Muslims have to find a sort of balance to practice their religion and culture, but at the same time also try to fit into the America way of life. Despite the assimilation of American culture, I argue that culture and religion are still a significant part of these second generation Muslims and therefore, something they value and take into account when dating.
