I do. I'm christian and DH is agnostic/atheist and even though we get along great and we respect eachothers beliefs. Sometimes it can get in the way. I just try to avoid any topic of religion or beliefs with him but he'll ask me questions and gets mad when he doesn't like the answer and tries to debate. I have to stop him at times because I have to remind him I love him no matter what he believes.
Does anybody else have different beliefs from there DH/SO and how do you deal with it?
No, we are both Southern Baptist. Though, I did go to Catholic school! I have an aunt who is Catholic which means her 4 kids are Catholic; however, my uncle was Southern Baptist like my dad (they were brothers). They worked it out well. She helped me with the whole Catholic school mass and all since Baptist don't do all that. I went when the masses were still in Latin, so I don't know what they were saying. I did love the Sisters though. In later life, I am glad a did some time at Catholic school because I understand a little better how it all works.

yes, I was raised catholic..never again
his family are born-agains (he doesn't really practice though)
Its best to avoid religious jokes, he finds them disrespectful...I don't
he takes the Bible as literal, I don't
But we teach our kids about God, and they learned to pray...

We are both Christians but sometimes we disagree on things, it's never been an issue because neither one tries to convince the other that they are right, we just accept each others opinions. I have had issues with his side of the family because they are opinionated and just plain annoying about their beliefs, my family is much more laid back and accepting of other people where his family, well lets just say they aren't. Thankfully my dh is the black sheep of his family when it comes to things like that.
