I dunno. I'm pretty sure Protestant and Catholic men and women have been doing it for a long time. Guess it just depends on your priorities.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
For instance, in most Muslim states, it's simply forbidden to marry a Muslim unless you are Muslim yourself. In those countries, converting to Islam is in fact a mandatory bureaucratic procedure, even if these people don't care about religion, not even the slightest. I've witnessed this situation countless times.
On the other hand, in Western states... converting to Islam necessarily means something else, whether you want to marry somebody or not.
