Of course they can but I am sure they must make a few compromises in their lives.


Per Islam religion rules, a Muslim man (Sunni or not Sunni) can marry a Christian woman (Catholic, Orthodox, or other denomination). However, children should be raised on Islam teachings until they are grown up and reaching Puberty such that they can exercise there full free choice.
