My girlfriend hasn't told her family about me because they want her to marry a Muslim

DEAR DEIDRE:  WHEN my girlfriend got ill with sepsis and went into hospital, I couldn’t visit as her family don’t know about me.

She’s a 25-year-old Muslim and I’m white British, aged 30.

We have been dating for nearly three years but she believes they will want her to marry a Muslim.

For three days I paced the hospital’s corridors and slept in my car while her family were at her bedside.

It broke my heart and I feared I was going to lose her.

I don’t know how to get through to her that we can’t go on this way.

DEIDRE SAYS: Explain to your girlfriend how worried you were by the thought of losing her, and ask her to tell her family about you.

If they still insist that their culture is more important than their daughter’s happiness, then she may have to make a choice.

She can find help through Muslim Women’s Network Helpline (, 0800 999 5786).
