Sensitive or sensible? Women are driven by feelings, men by logic and statistics. Even women will not argue with that statement.
It seems that what you want is to have your plan validated and blessed. If that's your reason to be here, listen to the women. They love falling in love and the drama when things go wrong.
So, here is my best shot at it. Imagine that you are the father of a Christian woman who wants to marry a Mulsim guy from Saudi Arabia. If you told her to go ahead, you would be the worst idiot walking on this earth for the reasons I already explained. If you want me to repeat them, I will.
Have you ever bought roses? Did you notice how in a week they all are slumped and ready to be thrown out? In most cases, marriage is the same way except it takes longer. With all these differences, in no time, you will be arguing day in day out.
Google "honor killing". That's what they do to their own kids. They will not hesitate to do it to yours.
