Muslim men may marry women who are of the "People of the Book," traditionally defined as Christians and Jews.  Muslim woman do not have the same option of marrying outside her faith.  This view is based on the Islamic role for men as heads of household who wield more power than women - a structure expected in Muslim societies.
