Question for the religious?
What Girls Said 11
No. Too different. My religious background is at the core of who I am. I can't just overlook that. I am friends with many nonreligious people, but I would never pursue a romantic relationship with them.
A lot of them say no, but seriously you'd waste the love I your life on their religious views?
the only reasons i wouldn't is because of complications. i dont wanna have a kid and have them confused between me and my man. honestly, if i ever meet an atheist man who takes my breath away, not marrying him would probably be excruciatingly difficult for me.
No, my faith is the reason why Iam who I am, dating someone who didn't share that would feel like a betrayal. Even if I didn't feel that way, my aunt married a 'fence-sitter', and I have seen first hand how destructive it has been on my cousins to come from parents who are not like-minded on something that is so pivotal in the upbringing if children.
No I wouldn't.
Because I am religious and it would create complications
I could be friends with them tho
It wouldn't work
I believe in God, but i don't have a faith as such. I would not date an atheist, because all of the ones i have come across are arrogant and confrontational.

Depends on how strongly her atheist views were. The thing about atheism is that it's a religion as well, you're proclaiming there is no god. If she's constantly talking about her views and it's a big part of her life, then no I couldn't date her. If she just didn't believe in god, but didn't make a big deal out of it then I could date an atheist.
Yeah, I don't even know what religion most of the people I associate with are. It doesn't matter to me as long as she wouldn't make fun of my religion or something.
A couple years ago maybe but now no I wouldn't I wouldn't want my kids to be confused and or torn apart between a religion and a group, it's better if everybody is on the same place.
I think it would just clash between us about God and religion. I"ve never dated an atheist so can't really comment on it.
I personally could because religion is not everything.
Yes I can date and marry and atheist.
Reading these responses pretty well scares me. I'm pretty indifferent on religion. I don't know if there's a God. If there is, hopefully he says "alright, you've been a good guy, that's what really matters", and the girl I've absolutely fallen head over heels for (she's done the same) is pretty strongly Christian. Would feel horrible if something like religion split us apart when we're so compatible absolutely everywhere else.
Why would they?
