    Has it really help your marriage or what sort of problems are you facing?

    Religion has helped my marriage tremendously. My inlaws are extremely religious, so my husband doesn't push me to go to family functions, out of fear of me being honest with his parents and telling them what they can do with it. This has alleviated tension considerably.

      Most people are of the opinion that being a Muslim and marrying a christian, there is always the tendency to have marriage break-up later in future.

        I think it should not. In India most of people do. Which I don't like. Being religious is good. But there should be no link between a marriage and religion. Religion is religion and marriage and marriage. The concept of marriage and religion are completely different. So what if your partner doesn't belongs to your religion and worships some other god. It's still a god, whether be jesus or allah or shiva or buddha!  At least I wouldn't marry a person who only respect people of his own religion, even if he belongs to my religion!

          If you'll go and ask to them what is the reason, they'll simply say that they doesn't belongs to our caste, our community. This is the only reason for their non-acceptance.

    Since we are both religious, it is a big help.

      Most people do not view it that way, and that has always been a big problem.

    As a gay couple, religion has only brought us problems I am afraid. A real shame as I consider some religious values as really quite relavent.

    My wife and I both believe in Christ and pray together. I can honestly say that before we started the practice of praying together we were drifting apart. I think that my faith in Christ helps keep me honest with myself and her. Before I turned my life over his teachings and a belief in him and his actions, I was self serving and destructive. I saw things for what use they were to me and nothing else.

    My belief in Christ and his philosophies have helped me develop self control when dealing with my in-laws as well as my own parents. The truths of idle words that I read in the new testament have helped me tremendiously in communication with my wife and those around me.

    I and my wife I think understand marriage differently now. Where before it was about "me, me, me," so to speak now it is about living for the other person. My faith has helped me prioritize my life.

    I believe that first and foremost my life consists of myself and God, that relationship has to be strong or I can not be strong for my wife and kids. I have learned that on my own idea of strength and love I almost ruiined my marriage twice.

    After that it's my wife and I, if that union isn't strong and we arn't commited to each other then there is no reason for us to be married. I need to make sure that I am doing my job in meeting her needs and keeping a smile on her face. I believe my job as Husband is peacemaker or keeper if you rather.

    After that myself and my children. Being the father and role model they need. Teaching them truth, meaning I need to seek truth to teach it to them. Laughing, loving and engagment with them. The world lacks the father influence, I refuse to let my children grow up not knowing what a father is.

    After that is everything and everyone else. The bible and my faith has taught me this. To cleave to my wife, that she and I are one, not two living together but one.

    I know that not everyone believes this and that there are some who will pick apart my words but I stand on the fact that my faith, our faith, has kept us honest and pure hearted with each other. I couldn't imagine another person sharing my life with.
