Is it important that you have the same belief with your partner or loved one?


There are couples with different religious affiliation or the other one is not a believer. How important is this in a relationship?

    The Holy Bible warns us not to be unequally yoked...but I see you have other plans.

    Is it really "mutual respect", Sid, or is it spiritual indifference or spiritual compromise?

    You raise two key points, the argumentative mindset and the views of families. The Shared Heart is a wonderful book by a couple that came together from Jewish & Christian marriages before intermarriage was acceptable.

    Is that completely true? If he became a neo-Nazi, a Stalinist, or an anarchist supporting bombings towards overthrowing the government, that "does not matter" to you?

    Risky approach at best, Jeff. The Bible instructs us not to be unequally yoked. So, in this stead, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, especially when dealing with human relations of any sort.

    I think the problem is exacerbated if the parties have strong beliefs. Now, I can see if neither party is that commited to a particular belief system or faith, where they would be more permissive and flexible.
