Would you marry outside of your religion or beliefs?

Say if your a christian and your DH is Jewish, or your atheist and your DH is Christian.....would it matter to you ? I just wonder how many step outside of their own personal beliefs or religion

  • If I had it to do all over again, NO WAY! The issues are huge and daily living is hard.

  • I think if having a different religion from someone you love prevents you from marrying them, the issue is with the closed-mindedness of your religion.

  • It wouldn't matter to me, in fact hubby and I are two totally different flavors of Christian.

  • I did and it ended in a nasty divorce. I truly believe if we had had some similar faith belief we could have worked it out before it got critical.

    I remarried and when I was dating I only dated people of a similar faith belief. Our shared spirituality is integral to our intimacy, life, family, and happiness.

  • We're two totally different people religion-wise. He's Catholic, I have no religion. Nothing as far as religion has ever come between us. He wants to get our kids baptized, I said go for it. I respect his beliefs, he respects that I don't believe. So, religion is the least of our issues as far as being a couple.

  • depends on how devout his faith (any type of extreme faith is out!), if the guy was able to accept our differences (i know i could), and if he could respect that my faith is mine (i know i could his). otherwise it just wouldnt work.

  • I would not marry someone who was not a Christian. The Bible says do not be "unequally yoked" so if you believe in the Bible, then you should not.

  • Yep, I did. My husband is an atheist and I am a Christian. It has never bothered either of us. My religious views have changed and still no change in our relationship.

  • I did...I mean we're both christian but he's catholic and I'm AME and there are a lot of differences. Both my grandfathers are (were) ministers and it's crazy to me some of the things DH tells me but it makes no difference. I could care less and I actually like listening to him talk about it. Not sure if he feels the same lol
