Nayera explains her conundrum following the disastorous date when she's asked about dating non-Muslim men: 'I think race isn't important to me, but religion is important because it's a fundamental part of who I am.'Similarly, it would be very, very difficult for me to marry someone who isn't British or at least Western, just because that's also a fundamental part of who I am.' Another singleton on the hunt for a husband is 24-year-old Bella, a fashion graduate who turns her back on an arranged marriage and takes it upon herself to find a husband with the help of the Birmingham Central Mosque.But she finds the strict rules imposed on dating a struggle, as she complains: 'There are too many rules, I just wish I had freedom.'The documentary explains that British Muslim women are 'facing a crisis', because many are caught between modern life and the older Muslim generation keen for them to settle down with a partner.Hanaan, who has been looking for a wife for five years attempts to backtrack, but Nayera explains that she believes domestic responsibilities and financial commitments should be shared equally between two parents, adding: 'It is not feasible in this day and age to survive on one parent working.'

I will not leave my job to be a "man dad", so I will be the breadwinner as long as she realises that the child needs a mum.'To me a mother is more important than a father bringing up a child.'An extremely honest Nareya tells Hanaan: 'I would struggle doing a full-time job and coming back and looking after all the kids.
I would struggle trying to do all of that myself with no support.'Their evening comes to an abrupt end when he cuts Nareya off: 'No problem, we might as well get the bill.
