My boyfriend is a Bangladeshi. His religion is Muslim. But he has a PR in Australia and stays there since he was a teenage. I'm a Malaysian Chinese. If we were to get married. Is it possible not to convert and not to have our future kids name follow the name of a Muslim?

Go get married in Australia. This is really a irritating question asked by educated Malaysians. It appears that there is not enough proper education at school level.

Easy to say that. But I have a family business to take care of in Malaysia. Need to know if we were married overseas and when we get in to Malaysia will we face any problems or pressure from the government or Islam community?

Get married overseas and come back to live in a community of non Muslims. There should be no material problems for the both of you. Only if a child born will have issues and bigger issues when they grow up.

Thank you @jeff005 

So meaning that if giving birth overseas the child will have no issues with the choice of name ? What other issues we might face in the future given that child being born overseas then back to Msia and having their education here?

In those countries that accept interfaith marriages, there is no issue on choice of names.

But think of what is going to happen when the father's name(a Muslim) is in the overseas birth certificate? I do not see any reason JPN here will issue a local BC. That would result in your child being statelessness, neither here or there.

My personal opinions is to give birth here and register yourself as single mom. Otherwise convert is the only other option to give your child a legal identity.
