    Do you think its important to share the same faith in marriage?  If yes, how important?

    My husband and I are different faiths, and it works just fine.

    I think it is important, but it doesnt always HAVE to be that way. It makes things a lot easier, and arguing over what faith your kids will be wont be an issue and what church to go to.

    I think it depends on how central your faith is to your daily life. If an evangelical Christian (random example) were to marry someone of another faith, I could see that being very problematic...but if a 'cultural' christian (for example, someone who just attends church on special holidays, and isn't overly religious) were to marry a 'cultural' jew I don't see why that couldn't work (again, just picking random examples here). I know lots of families that incorporate the religious/cultural traditions of the varying faiths of both spouses into their lives, and are able to make it work.

    I don't think it is important for both of them to be of the same faith. As long as they respect the other's faith and not impose their faith on the other, it should be fine.

    There are religions that are diametrically opposed to each other and no compromise will heal the rift (Christianity and satanism for e.g.).  If there is common ground love can conquer difficulties. 
    Both spouses must have the same goal.  If one believes in eternity and the other does not, then one will live for things of this earth while the other will fight for things beyond this life making daily struggles that much harder to overcome.
    Personally, I am not married, but I search for someone who speaks the same language my heart speaks to its Creator.  I love to sing with others and I would love to find a heart that would serenade God in harmony with me.  Having the same beliefs as my husband would be key in choosing him.
