my fiance' and i are from different faith backgrounds. so far it hasn't really been an issue. i'm looking towards the future though and i can see where things can get icky...esp w/ our daughters.
so just wondering if anyone is of a diff faith than their SO/hubby and if so, how it's affected your relationship and if you have children, how it affects how you rear them.
thanks bunches for any input.

We both have different upbringings but, both love God-- so it isn't to hard we do a lot of praying for one another and God always meets us in the middle. We started to pray that God would bring us together spiritually and set aside our religious differences...He always does. At first I would get frustrated and so would he but we love each other and both know how important it has been having God in our marriage to make it work. We are growing together that is the best part about it all.

I am Muslim, husband is Christian. We teach our child(ren) about both of our religions and will let them decide what they want to be as they get older. We dont force anything on our daughter and she is comfortable learning both for now. We also dont really hinder our parents from teaching our daughter anything either...But we believe that its our main responsibility to teach her and not everyone elses. I will also go to church with my husband on occasion and he will participate in our prayers also. But ultimately, we both love the Lord and will always put God first. SO I feel that if our daughter sees how much we love God that will transpire to her. In my honest opinion its easiest to raise your children in one religion at home, but you cannot pick who you fall in love with so we live accordingly. Good Luck!!
