    I'm having trouble convincing a special friend to believe in God. So I decided to break free. Did I make the right decision?
    Cause I want to be  married in church. God willing and your all invited. hehe

    If you would have a lover would you marry him or her if he/she an atheist?

        You don't dump someone for not agreeing, That is so Mad, Everytime someone says no, I think you are wrong, I believe that "its this way, not How you say it is" they get the "Boot" How are you ever going to stick with anyone, No two people ever agree, all the time. I am gobsmacked by this. Unbelievable. The Guy has had a very lucky escape. Stay single.

      If you are really committed and you believe in your relationship then try to make a way for this to work... but one thing's for sure, you can never force a person to do something that he doesn't like. wait for him to make a decision without your intervention. if the reason of his conversion is because of your happiness and your beliefs, eventually this will lead to more problems. I think you can pray for him, your strong faith will surely help.

      I married a christian who did not seem to mind marrying an atheist. We had a semi-religious ceremony. We included just enough bits and pieces of different faiths and traditions that nobody from either family was excluded. This also meant that nobody was HAPPY with the ceremony. It was perfect!

              Why did you add IMHO? at the end of your statement


              To Summise , according to the OP would you marry an atheist , my answer no -because (above)...

              but ya'know , we dont agree on Gods existance , so how much more of a problem would it be for intending couples?...
              I rest my case.

                Only if - as the OP stated "I'm having trouble convincing a special friend to believe in God."

                None of you seem to realize that this is where the conflict comes in. I am sure if she had not tried to do this, they would have gotten along just fine. I have plenty of friends who believe in an invisible super being. We even discuss it occasional. And it is fine - as long as they do not try to convince me to believe in it.

                And I was making fun of you by adding IMHO. wink

                Now explain how my belief in the Flying Spaghetti Monster is a value system. smile

                  Its your belief ,you explain it lol

                  Even if I explained why I believed something ( and its what I was meaning back there) ,its mine, not exclusively mine, but never the less my belief.
                  It matters to me how those beliefs affect my whole mindset...as do another persons belief's influence or (not) , them
                  So in the great scheme of things ,conflict would no doubt arise.

                  But it doesnt just apply in religion..though obviously its a biggy ,if not biggest

                  For example , would you get along with  a certain group of people ,knowing they dont respect your morals? ( Im talking couples  thing)

                  Heres another that comes to mind
                  I once dated a guy, great person ,good worker, good citizen etc ,but he didnt ever want children-didnt believe in them

                  There are tons of examples why people wont 'fit' but may otherwise get along.

                  We did not share the same belief system...

    dennisemattposted 7 years ago

    I think, that when deciding to marry, your religous beliefs are of utmost importance. If two peoplehave opposite moral and relgious values, this will become a huge problem. I am not, by any means, saying one should judge another based on religion. And of  course in any relationship there will be compromises, but when it comes to core values and beliefs, it is important to agree. (You can say shes wrong for believing in God, and all that, but thats not the point.) You must have simiallar beliefs for a relationship to work.

    I would love to advice you on this important event. But I really can't, because........well, you see, I don't believe in atheists. But, I've got an experiment for you since the person thinks he's an atheist. Go to the religion section, and read the posts of the atheists there (it's a riot that they post there more than anyone!) and then ask yourself if you'd like to be married to anyone like that for a lifetime (or even 15 minutes). Then make your choice....

          She makes a great point that I didn't think about. Look at the conflict that you see on this forum. In fact, go to any forum and the usual suspects show up: the believers battling the unbelievers. It's the strongest evidence that dennisematt is right. And the debate sometimes starts out civil, but it then degenerates. The differences don't dissipate after marriage; they become writ large. Hope things work out for you.

    It's kind of an odd question because you wouldn't really be able to get married if you were truly a hardcore Atheist. Marriage is for all intents and purposes the union of two people before God. I'm not saying I believe in marriage, but if one were to believe in marriage and hold the core value of not having faith in things he can't see, then what's the point of getting married? To conceive of the concept of marriage requires the same cognitive functions as to conceive of the possibility of God (faith, trust, unconditional love etc.).

    I ask myself the question, and even though I have no set beliefs for either or, I think I'd respect the beliefs of my partner and wherever she wanted to get married I would be 'more or less' fine with it, or at least be comfortable compromising. Relationships get to a point where they transcend surface level conflicts like that. Perhaps if he was really 'the one' you'd be able to work it out together, if its mean't to be.

      Utter disinformation, bovine excreta. One certainly does not need a supreme being to have a marriage in general... perhaps one would need to be of a faith to make a faith-based marriage work, but marriage is a civil union, a legal framework of a social arrangement between two individuals. If you want to add all sorts of religious spin to it, that's fine for you, from your box... but marriage is not confined to that world view.

      My religious doctrine is open-ended and non-exclusive -- thus for me marriage is a union between two sovereign souls and a legal arrangement of estates. For me, spiritual marriage happens when I unite with another soul, whether through sex, partnership, or other yoke of action. Legal marriage carries that idea into the civil sphere.

    The important thing is that both of you should be able to respect one another.

    That is almost impossible if you both disagree on your existance and destiny.

    But trying to change someone ,by force or blackmail ,or nagging ,or bullying , or any mentally abusive behaviour is wrong. ( Not saying you do any of these things)

    I am a person with spiritual beliefs that is married to an athiest and it doesn't cause us any problems at all but then neither of us is out to convert the other. We certainly have some interesting discussions but thse are never arguments. We both respect each other and understand that belief is a very personal thing.

    When it comes to shared values we are both on the same page. Honesty, integrity, generosity, kindness to our fellow humans, equality, etc etc. 

    So it can work but only when you respect and accept each others differences.

    My dad was raised Jewish... doesn't practice. My mom was raised Catholic... doesn't practice. (That isn't atypical) They got married. Their families dealt with it. It has been 22 years. But for couples where one person is religious and the other not so much, I could see a problem, if you let it be.

    Would I marry an atheist? Yes.

    I most certainly would not.  It was well established by a consensus of Hubbers that Atheists are boring, illogical, and just plain wrong.  Marrying such a person would be an afront to The Artist Formerly Known as God.

    Frankly speaking, I'm not a religious person, maybe it's the reason why I don't see the problem. But at the same time as far as I understood the question to believe or not to believe is not the only problem in this couple. And if you, Beautyrose, hesitate to marry this person or not... listen to your heart...

            It was because he said  christian marry there own our sibling (in the old testament)and that according to him. And he was stating that in an old testament. He did not know that in the old testament it was God command on them to marry this man or that woman for the purpose of continued creation not as insist. But during the new testament Time of Jesus just after Noah God never allowed marriage by close blood already cause its considered insist in New testament. So Hope Mark you understand already. When you ready bible start from Old Testament Then New Testament then Final part of Bible the Apocalypse or Revelation.

          we don't marry our siblings its an insist. But in the Old testament since there are less people it was God who direct them really of whom are they gonna marry regardless if they are related or not but not considered insist. Not allowing to marry siblings or close blood ties comes only during Jesus Christ time. You'll see a big difference when your read Old testament and New testament of the bible. Just a clarification on this matter.

      In same religion nothing is boring but life is in harmony. Not all part or aspect of life can be said boring. Cause life is dynamic at all. It can only be boring if you keep stagnant. Not acting your faith out.

    beautyrose, if you were trying to convince him to believe what you do that shows you don't respect him or his right to his own beliefs.  You wanted to change him.  That's a disastrous ingredient in any relationship. 

    You are better off with nobody than with someone you think you have a right to try to change.  Your friend is better off with someone who respects his right to have his own beliefs and who is willing to love him for who he is.   IMO   smile

    As far as whether I'd marry an atheist goes, I measure "marry-able" based on a person's kindness, character, respect for other people, honesty, integrity - and things like that.  So, sure - I'd marry an atheist.  Obviously, though, your measure of "marry-able" is different - so I think you did a great thing by breaking up.  I'd just bet God (if there is one) is pretty pleased with you right now.  wink

      I was not forcing him, I was just trying to see if there was a way I could do for his conversion. I'm not only concerned for our feelings but for his soul as well. Was it not something he be grateful.

    Well, I don't really believe in marriage in the legal sense.  So...that being said, I was with an atheist. wink  He was a good person--well, basically.  There is probably a difference between someone who thinks his way through to becoming an atheist philosophically and someone who assumes they are an atheist (as many Freshmen boy college students seem to, in my experience, lol) or who were raised that way (just as a religious person or a 'christianist.')

    I've got to say, it is sort of a point loss if a person is not spiritual...to me.  But equally it would be a point loss if the partner said they believed in God and never really thought it through...or believed in a >slightly< too fundamental way.  Which, lol, the latter being the present situation (hey...those partners are never perfect!)....  Also, exchange in a relationship is a good thing...forcing change is not.

    So, would I be with an atheist?  The answer is 'maybe.'  Would I be with a rank christianist?  The answer there:  Absolutely not.

        There is nothing wrong with monkeys, have you ever sat and watched a family of chimpanzees? It is more than obvious to most people that they are on a few steps down from us in the chain of evolution.

        What happened to the other few steps? I guess that humans killed them off, just like they are believed to have done to the neanderthal man. Sometimes I look at my fellow human being and I wish that we didn't develop the aggressive and hateful genes that we clearly possess.

        Watching two chimpanzes kissing and hugging is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

        Take a look at a Story about a Guy called Clayton Weatherston, his parents love him. He locked his Girlfriend in her Bedroom, while her Mother helplessly stood by, as he stabbed her 216 times.
        His lawyer, Judith Ablett-Kerr, claims he was provoked.
        Despite the fact he was her Lecturer and wasn't meant to be in a Relationship with a Student to begin with.
        He is the most ghastly creep you have ever seen laughed about his actions, blamed the young girl. Mindblowing.
