Is there any obstacles for a Moslem woman to marry a non-moslem?
I am catholic but do not believe in religions but I do believe in God and 
I pray; she is Moslem and the last thing I would like to do is to
interfere in her beliefs, I love her and respect her too much to do
this, I admire her dedication to her religion and in no way I would like
her to change it but I also would like to be able if she accepts me the
way I am... She says that maybe Moslems are not allowed to marry outside
their religion but we are not sure if this is true or not, would it be

A muslim woman is not allowed to marry a non-muslim man. However, if that
non-muslim man accepts the religion of Islam by testifying that there is no
God but Allah and that Muhammad is His messenger, they can get married
