Ok this is how the conversation went.
Me= Is cousin X (not jw) still going out with that Arab guy.
Mum=No. He returned home and ended up marrying some one from his home country. Cousin X was telling me that she was quite thank full it ended as it never would of worked because his mother hated her because she wasn't Muslim.
Me=Oh really! That's a shame because she would make anybody a wonderful wife. You know I think with religions like that it a matter of having the right badge and position, and if you haven't got it then you are considered not suitable or bad. You know it's funny because you could be a really good person, with a kind heart and good morals but if you weren't seen putting in enough hours down at the mosk then you are judged accordingly.
Mum= Yeah I know it's a real shame. To be honest i really hate religions that are like that.
Me (with an eye roll)= yeah me to.
And there you have it folks. If only she really knew.
