    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1222/1120/N=9/1434) Shias generally hide their true face under the cover of taqayya; therefore it is against precaution for a Sunni girl to marry a Shia boy though he repents from his Shia beliefs and practices. Yes, if he is believed by his friends especially religious and knowledgeable persons to be a true Sunni, then a Sunni girl can marry him. However, one should exercise maximum care in marrying a Shia.
