  • Our marriage improved so much after my husband gave his life to Christ. He had been an Atheist for many years and the last two before he became a Christian he was very mean to me about my faith and only went to church to pick everything a part. It was really tough to stick it out but I felt it was the right thing and when he gave his life to Christ I about fell out of my chair. He came that night to embarrass me at church so I could not go back he left a born again If I ever found myself single again and were to date the guy would have to be a Christian. I would not be with someone of a different faith again it is too important to me to compromise with a partner like that again.

  • Absolutely. But only if he IS religions, which tends not to fall in line with the type I am attracted to. IF a religious man COULD keep it to his self, and not allow it to ruin a relationship, then it wouldn't be an issue.

  • No. My husband and I have very different spiritual beliefs. We make it work and are raising our children to find/choose their own beliefs.

  • I'm Pagan... My DH is Christian...

    So No, as long as they don't expect me to change my beliefs, I can deal with the fact that we are different... We have other differences too, none are a big deal.

  • Yes, it would be.

  • Absolutely! Many of my views on parenting are based on what I believe religiously. I could never marry a man if we had different religious views. I have a cousin who is christian. She married a Jewish man. Now most of their problems stem from their religious beliefs.

  • only in the aspect that they must respect mine and must not try to convert me to theirs.

  • I never even considered religion when I was dating.  It wasn't until well after we were married that I discovered my husband was an atheist.    I was lucky to marry a man with the same beliefs as me.
