Interfaith Marriages: Summary of 12 Years of Research
Dilip Amin, Ph.D.
Hindus, in general, have very limited knowledge about Abrahamic (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) faiths. My survey shows that 38% of Hindus marry an Abrahamic in America. To help youths in interfaith love, I established a forum, InterfaithShaadi.org, in 2009 that has since assisted countless individuals and couples, and through which I have personally guided 1200 youths. This experience is now summarized in my new guidebook, Interfaith Marriage: Share & Respect with Equality.
This presentation will cover perspectives on God, scriptures, marriage laws of different countries, pre-nuptial agreements, dealing with parents and children, within-faith marriage issues and summary of youths’ real-life experiences. Plans to guide Hindu community, Hindu youths & parents and Hindu priests/temples about interfaith marriages will be discussed
