    No options are appropriate to us. There is no division and we agree to let our kids find their own paths. Our morals are the same as they are not religion based.

    I'm pagan he's christian... we just kinda agreed to disagree a long time ago. We usually agree on morals and such but rarely there are religious debates - Which I usually win since I know his religion and mine better than he knows his own...

    None of the above. He has his beliefs, I have mine, and we respect that in each other. We are not raising our kids to believe either of our religions or any other one --- we are letting them choose on their own once they are old enough to research them all on their own.

    I think that's where the most conflict comes up with people --- in raising the kids in one religion or the other or trying to blend the two. Doesn't always work out real well.

    I am a Neopagan my husband is an atheist & while we sometimes have interesting discussions on the topic of religion & belief it doesn't cause any friction & our discussions aren't arguments.

    We do agree to disagree, we also have some fun friendly debates to compair each of our beliefs. Our morals, values, ethics, etc. have little to nothing to do with our religious beliefs. And as extreme polor opposites that our religions are (spiritual atheism vs. southern baptist) the one thing that was never of debate was that our children would have complete knowledge of any and every belief system possible and it would be completely up to them to find which one fit to their own unique beliefs.

    My ex husband was a pagan and I thought back then that what he believed in didnt matter. In the end we were not equally yolked and I couldnt agree with the things he stood for anymore and we split up. As far as I know hes still pagan and an angry mean person. Its sad.

    We are an 'eclectic' family. My family background is Christian, my dh's family background is Hindu. I practice Buddhism, dh is an atheist. We are not raising the kids to be any specific faith. We talk to them about many faiths and will support them in what they choose to explore later on. We share similar values regardless of what spiritual beliefs we have or don't have. In terms of some areas where our choices differ due to spiritual reasons (for instance I'm a vegetarian, dh and the kids eat meat) we simply choose to disagree. Dh and the kids know why I choose not to eat meat, I allow them their own choices, we respect each other's decisions.

    My fiance is Christian, although he's not sure what type of Christian, and I'm Catholic. It doesn't really cause problems, especially since I told him that my religion is very important to me and that if we ended up having any children they would be raised Catholic. He agreed to it, and is sticking to his promise. The only problem I have now is with his family...they hate Catholics, and they tell him that my children are "Going to hell."

    Well, when I married my hubby, and he took me to his Church I chose to change my religion... It's something that I did willingly... If you would have been in that AWESOME service you would know why... Lol... It was amazing... Something I had never seen or experienced before, and I'll never forget it... That was 22 years ago... And it still has me talking... Lol...
