Why are non-Muslim men marrying Muslim women and then converting to Islam?
I think that the information is most likely being viewed incorrectly. I happen to know many men who have converted to Islam and married Muslim women. In general they convert to Islam first and then choose a Muslim wife. One couple that I know met in an airport in London. He fell in love with her immediately but although she would speak to him she wouldnt marry him or get serious because he wasnt Muslim. He began looking into Islam because he was into her but chose Islam because he believed in it. The odd thing is that he actually brought HER into into the practice of her faith and not the other way around? She was pretty much only a cultural and holiday practicing person who identified as Muslim but didnt practice her faith. Now they are both practicing Muslims with a family. Islam prohibits Muslim women from marrying non muslim men so that definitely plays a role in some conversions but not the majority. I for instance am a convert to Islam who chose to marry a muslim man. I did not convert to Islam for him, I married him because he was Muslim. It is common for adult converts to marry soon after conversion because marriage and family are such a huge part of Islam. That may tend to cloud statistics like these.
