If the guy wants to marry a Muslim girl, why doesn't he just say so and why did the woman with her children "leave". In Muslim countries it is common practice for Christians usually women to be kidnapped and the kidnapper says she is "married" to him. Even his parents go along with him. The Christian parents don't dare say anything to the officials because they will be beaten up, left on the side of a road or jailed for protesting. It's up to the kidnapped girl to escape from the room she is locked up in and raped every night because she is "married" to the rapist and thus available for "married" sex. That's what living in Muslim countries for minority infidels is like.
