Quantcast

Could you marry someone with a different religion. I am thinking it might be good to marry a scientologist. The divorce will be easy.

Yes.  I believe all differences can be worked out.
No.  It would not work well for me.
Maybe....

    I don't have any religion, and if they started preaching at me, I would kick them out the door. But I don't want to get married again anyway. I just came for a beer.

    This is one area I don't think can ever be worked out as long as both are truly devout to their respective religion. It is truly best to never go there. Even politics would be easier to work around.

    I am inclined to think you are right. Your religious beliefs really do have to effect the very core of who you are unless you are agnostic or apathetic and just wearing the label of a particular religion.

    It might matter if you are going to argue about how to bring up the children.

    But some religions don't want to share the upbringing, the idea is that their view is the only truth. If one or both parents believe their own religion is the truth they will want to raise the children with that one.

    A pre-nup might work, but I am suggesting that for some people that wouldn't get off the ground if they cannot agree on any compromises. Having been through a divorce, I am not sure that two divorced parents even have any rights or say in how the other raises the children, as long as one isn't doing something a judge would deem dangerous.

    I am very tension free these days, which is quite nice. We are having some unusually hot weather here so I have got the electric fan on high and aimed right at my bed. I'm nearly ready to turn the light out but I read for a little while before I do that. It helps me to sleep better. I hope you have a good sleep yourself later. Don't stay up too late!

    You have posted a picture of one of my favourite roses. It's a rugosa rose.

    Well I'm dating someone that has different views than I do, and we're doing just fine. We don't really even use religion in any of our conversations anyway. Even if we did it wouldn't matter, we're both laid back and tend to make jokes about religions. It wouldn't be too much a problem for us :)

    *I meant to put maybe*
    I probably could. Since I'm Agnostic, I'm at that happy place where it doesn't matter since I'm in the middle. I believe religion *could* be valid and that there *could* be a God, so any set of religious beliefs is fine and dandy with me.
    That is, unless the guy is one of those people who feels the need to shove religion down the throats of others, criticizes my beliefs, or is one of those people who would like to make sure that potential children do or don't believe certain things for whatever trivial reason. If that's the case, it wouldn't work. At all.

    The Bible says do not be unequally yoked. If you take your religion seriously, you'd better have a mate who agrees with your viewpoint.

    How would you deal with raising children? What would the children be told is the "truth"? Could you be married to someone who was accepting of your beliefs but believed you were wrong?

    With me, raising children will be difficult either way. I want to be able to give my children religious freedom, if they did ask about any of that stuff I'd tell them about the big bang theory and evolution, even if me myself dont believe in it. Also, I'd be okay if they thought I were wrong, people have different views on the unknown. It's not good to be exactly the same, plus religion isn't a big deal to me.
