Does anyone have a non-christian/christian marriage by this I mean one of you is christian and the other is not? My boyfriend and I have been talking a lot about marriage. I am not christian but my boyfriend is. We have nothing against the other religion/beliefs. We both agree that we would teach our children about both and let them decide when they are older...
What problems have you faced?
Do you think your relationship is stronger for the difference? Why/Why not?
How do you celebrate the different holidays?

My husband is "christian." He doesn't do church or anything but his beliefs are primarily christian... I am Pagan. We both knew what the other believed long before we talked about marriage. We have agreed that our kids need to find their own beliefs and we are very neutral with the holidays. Yule/Christmas for example, we only decorate with things that apply to both and the kids get half their gifts on Yule and half on Christmas... It doesn't really cause issues. We don't openly decorate religiously, there are no crosses on the wall or alters in the yard. We keep things private. If a problem does come up we have agreed to always talk it out... Or we simply agree to disagree.... It's no problem. I know much about Christianity and continue to study a great number of religions, I hope someday that he will do the same and maybe understand my beliefs more. But as for now, we just compromise.
