Muslim / Buddhist Dating

There is this girl i really like. She just so happens to be a converted devout to Islam. I just so happen to be a somewhat Atheist Buddhist.

I have absolutely no wish to get married. Ever. Is this haram?

I am a 21 year old female, and my parents have begun to try and have the marriage conversation with me. As stated in my topic line, I have absolutely no wish to get married, at all. I have been honest with my parents and told them exactly that. Needless to say, they are not happy about that.

Why is our love forbidden?

I am a 26-year-old Egyptian girl who has been with a European man for almost 3 years. I love him so much and we belong together. He is not a Muslim but he is a good person and he loves me like no one else ever has. I love my religion but I don’t understand how our love can be looked upon as a sin! My father is completely against the relationship of course, but I don’t understand what I am supposed to do. I will not end my relationship and I don’t believe I should turn my back on true love just because we don’t share the same religion. We are living in 2009, not the middle ages- would it better that I end this and marry some random Arab man who I don’t really love but that is Muslim, when instead I could have true love with my soulmate?
