Armina’s partner, Mike, is Catholic and identifies as white, while Armina identifies as a Pakistani Ismaili Muslim. She details their love story, how their families reacted, and what Mike’s presence and attendance at Ismaili events are like. Armina also discusses the unexpected challenges her marriage poses, as well as what her interfaith wedding ceremony was like.

Plus, Armina explains what questions or comments she’s tired of hearing (hint: think babies and conversion). We also examine the fetishization of mixed beings and why that rhetoric is harmful. She ends with advice to anyone in a similar situation.
