A man, who has no religious affiliation, is happy for his wife and children to follow whatever religion they choose. His Roman Catholic wife is a potential convert to Islam, but has declined to commit herself because she knows that Muslim women may not marry non-Muslim men. She is concerned that, if her husband does not also convert, she could not remain his wife. What is her position?

As soon as a lady becomes muslimah, it is no longer acceptable for her to remain married to a non-Muslim.
