Can someone shed some light on the following please?

My wife is from Malaysia and has a Muslim name, this came from her 1st marriage in which she had to convert. We  married this year in England, we are looking to move back to Malaysia permanently within the next 2 years.

Will our marriage be a problem as I don’t intend to convert as I feel it is up to the person of what religion they choose not a government.

Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

Correct
Freedom of Faith for non-muslims in Malaysia. It is in our Constitutional Laws.

not a government. 
But it is this government that Administer the Affairs of this country.
Then you have to abide by the Laws of This Country and at any country you may choose.

Your Marriage is legal in UK 
It is impossible to marry in Malaysia if you do not convert.
If the two of you do not intend to have children, just stay together.

@Jeff,

As you say, if we don't intend to have children, just stay together. That doesn't really answer my question of how can I live  there permanently without having to convert. As we plan to build a house on the family land.

I have already answered you in your the other post.

Check on the MM2H.

Down the road you would be granted Permanent Residency. And you do not need to convert.

Actually our constitution states freedom of religion and worship for ALL.

wow.. wow.. wow
So in Simon's case, his wife can renounce Islam since she is a convert and not born into a Muslim family? And then they both can get married in Sawarak whose State has no official Religion under their State Constitutional Laws.

That's nice and new development..!!
