I am a convert to Islam and I am divorced with a child. I have met a good Muslim man who would like to marry me. We are well suited for each other, with the same goals in life and same love of Islam. He is Arabic. I am not. He knows in Islam there is nothing to prevent our marriage; however, his family believes that because he has never been permanently married before, he cannot marry a divorced woman, especially one with a child and from another culture. How could you recommend I handle this situation? I know that it is a cultural problem and that their ideas are outside of Islam, but how can one deal with this, especially as a convert? Thank you very much. Fiaman Allah.

If you can establish some communications to solve this issue then go ahead with the marriage, otherwise the future of your relationship might be in serious danger. You can't marry based on emotions only.
