I am new here and ever since I joined I've seen nothing happening. The last post was a comment I made on a topic that was no longer under discussion. Where is everyone?

Salam all (admin);
What's happened to the forum. Can't see threads like before, & you have to go into each board. Even the slight regular users don't seem to be here.

It's sad, come on we need to wake the forum members up!

I know this is old, but it something I am running into now.

I'm a professional muslim guy who has been introduced to a professional muslim woman.
I didn't anticipate meeting like this, but figured I'd give my family a chance to introduce me to someone.

Here's the thing.  I have absolutely no problem with having a career woman as a wife.
I actually wanted it.
However, i do consider it very usual for us to have met. 

For one, most of the guys she was introduced to were well... uneducated people she wouldn't want to marry anyways.
Then I think of guys like me.  Well educated professional, non-traditional guys; who would be perfect for her.  I ask what we have done.

I can say, we have the freedom to go outside our community or even religion and many many many of us do.
I've thought about it as well.

That is the key thing.  It is the comparable Muslim guys venture outside the community, leaving the professional woman without comparable partners.
It is not that Muslim men are scared of professional Muslim women... it is that the one's that aren't don't generally want to stay in the traditional community for partners.

I find myself in this position now.  The main reason I have doubts about her is well... she comes from a large traditional family.  I really don't want to be sucked back into that lifestyle.  I was born to my own family, and I have made whatever peace with tradition with them and have a good relationship with them.  I really don't want to deal with this all over again in a family that is not my own.

She has not taken the proper stands to firm up her ground or gain any independence, from which I could trust to build a base.

I think this mentality, that I'll freely admit I have, prevents many comparable Muslim men from entertaining the idea of the Muslim professional woman.
The comparable professional Muslim men don't want to stay in the traditional culture, while the woman... often by tradition stay in it.
They don't meet and in my case... when they do... the girl is great... but the desire to free from too much traditional culture interferes.
