What differences could make or break it for you?

I started dating a guy I used to work with recently. We had lost track of each other for awhile and then caught back up and eventually started dating. But we're still in that 'getting to know you stage'. I'm finding out we believe in a lot of different things. None of which have ever caused a fight or anything like that.. but they're more than 'petty' differences. So it got me thinking... what different beliefs, for you, would find grounds to end the relationship??


also, sorry this posted early, my hand slipped on the laptop and accidently posted.

wanting kids vs not wanting kids, believing in God vs not believing in God, believing in marriage vs not believing in marriage... those are probably top 3

Yeah, those are biggens. 

Also things like drugs, daily drinking, or often.

Gambling, illegal behaviors. Spanking. There could be a lot of deal breakers. It really just depends on your own personal beliefs and what you want in your life.

Well I'm married but before that. I didn't date guys that drank ever no drugs. No racism. I don't want anymore kids so they had to be cool with that. And since I'm vegan now. If something ever happened to my marriage they would have to be supportive of that open to becoming vegan but preferrably already vegan

funny, you say that. Those are our 3 major differences and a few others. Not that I'm asking anyone for advice, because I'm completely capable of making my own decisions, lol. Any other major ones for anyone?
