What would you do if you married someone of the same religion as you and during your marriage they became atheist or started to follow a different religion?
Or if you're atheist and married another atheist and your spouse became religious?

Very good question.
What would I do: Becoming religious, following a different religion etc. happens at a point in time which we won't know, but it's an ongoing thinking process prior to them taking a different route in their religious belief. Thus, at some point in time, I would discuss this matter with my husband, and take things as it goes with time. I'm afraid this is something which we won't have control in no matter how much you know or you've discussed it with your partner prior to marriage.
In general: All we can do is know what we want, make some smart choices for yourself, and see what we can compromise should this happen. I've heard of couples who seem to find a happy medium between both of them, on the other hand, I've heard of a husband who became overly religious that she had to divorce him. So should the path and how you perceive things in life between both of you change a lot and it's too much to accept for the other party, the only thing can be done is to move on with life.0
