Muslims in France torn between tradition and modernity over relationships: poll
by Peter O'Neil
France's Muslims, regularly accused by the country's right-wing politicians of not adapting to the culture here, are torn between tradition and modernity when it comes to relationships and marriage, according to a poll released Tuesday.
But a strong majority of respondents said they were opposed to premarital sex and a bare majority said they wouldn't marry someone of another faith background.
"In the area of customs and sexual morality Muslims in France swing between tradition and modernity," concluded the polling firm Ifop.
