2mo 1. If you're saying conversion then you should be polling No
2. My answer would be , yes. I don't find religion any problem as long as it is not imposed on someone or violates human principles. I am open minded person and there's a little bits of each group in me. I am not confined to one god or religion, i just believe there's only one superpower greater than religion or anything else.
2mo Are percentages correct? Damn its half ½

  • I am not totally against it but I am not completely open to it either.
    -I'm not a religious person and getting along with person of same religion as me but who's way more religious will be difficult.
    -I would think twice before getting into relationship with someone of totally different religion (read: Abrahmic religions). Still it'd depend on how rigid that person is on their views. If that person respects my views (and doesn't try to convert me, which, I hate to say this, decent number of people of Abrahmic faiths do *let downvotes pour now*)

      Will your family support you?

    • 2mo

      That's another issue. They'd be fine with any other non-Abrahmic faith. But someone of Abrahmic religion? Probably they wouldn't like it at all. But they may support me if they think that guy is also mature enough to handle differences in faiths.

  • My considerations about if to marry this girl or not, wouldn't be on religion, I don't care what religion she is, but if she will try everytime to tell me that I'm wrong just because I believe in something else then I wouldn't marry her because she would make a lot of head pain to me.

  • hi and mmmm, im assuming your addition above number 2 is your take and that interests me somewhat, if you have this belief and would stand strongly in it do you really see that you could be with a partner who had equal belief in a religion? even if they didn't try to convert you? personally the expression of a greater energy that flows through everything and that can be positive or negative for its purpose and can be utilised by free will is more my kind of thing, i too have the sense that if a person feels the desire and connection of following a specific religion that is their choice it only becomes an issue for me when their belief drives them to enlighten, damn or change others and their behaviour. personally i couldnt really imagine a partner who has religious beliefs if they are strong being a compatible partner for me or perhaps you, it would seem more likely to me that our perceptions would allow us to think this more of a possibility, look forward to your response xx

      It is very interesting opinion. I think religion is contributes very less when checking compatibility between partners. Thanks for sharing this.
      Another thing, why do you do xx at end? I know @Paris13 does just like that. Are you sisters? lol😂

    • 2mo

      mmm oh no no no, i personally have trouble with your sentence religion contributes very less when checking compatibility? surely it is a major part of ones soul and empathy towards others? and as for xx i will do this when i feel it in me, something that has come from me with emotion fyi as a rule i dont use it as a random gesture during texting for instance only sometimes with close friends, i suppose it is sent wrapped in an energy of love and positivity xx

    • 2mo

      *blushing😊😊 xx
      I feel like religions contributes very less to actual personality, i just feel like it😜

  • Yes, I did, @lazermazer.
    Back in 2011, I had Married a Muslim Man who had Found me on Facebook. He was from Egypt. I ended up Going out there to be with Him and his Family, going Back when I had returned, where it was Then we had Tied the Knot.
    I think I recall @ElissaDido had asked this Same one, hun. Not sure if She ever Replied to me though.
    Good luck and Great question. xx

  • I'm now atheist, but was raised Catholic. I would only consider marrying someone else who is also atheist because I've had more than enough religious shit rammed down my throat to last a lifetime, thankyou very much.

      @springocelot Over all interfaith marriages have higher divorce rates, but interestingly enough if you happen to be a Christian and you marry someone who is Mormon or Jewish that actually statistically lowers the chance of you getting divorced. On the other hand tho it highly raises the chance of your divorce for your partner compared to if they were to marry within their own faith.

  • Yeah.
    My current boyfriend isn't Jewish. Doesn't really bother me.

  • Depends on the girl and her view on religion. If she is open towards other religions and her parents are as well (or she stands her ground over her parents) - then I don't see an issue with it.

    If it's strictly religious including the demand for me to convert - BIG NO

  • It would only work if she understands I would never consider converting. Also, if she wanted kids from me, those kids being raised secular until they are old enough to make the desicion if they want to believe or not. I was raised in a strict catholic home and now hate catholism. My mom tries to put catholic things in my room and car just for me to go to her in person and destroy it in front of her face while i say the stuff is garbage and bullshit.

      1. Differences concerning education of children can lead to years of problems in a couple.
      2. Honestly, becoming a dad now? Possible of course but it's way too late for me to take the responsibility for children.
