This is a tough spot. I attended Islamic classes before so I am kind of aware of the practices, principles and teachings. It is best to know the religion first because once married, your life will revolve around it. To a Muslim, Islam is the absolute
I do not find fault with the way you went into it What you just did was preach truth about facts in your life that a man can be converted without any fuss.
