Many people fall in love with people from other religion. They'd like to be with their other half but are limited by religion.
Maybe the answer is don't take your religion so seriously?
It depends on the people. To some, it's not a big deal. To others, it is vital. I think any relationship can work if both parties are willing. I don't think someone should get into a relationship expecting the other to change (in this example, convert). I think that you need to love and accept the person for who they are. If you can't, then maybe its not a good idea.
It's a hell of a big deal, if it is mormons, Scientology or Westboro Baptist Church.
How do you mean? If the other person is or yourself?
My uncle and his wife said they lost their son and never saw him again. When their son got married into the mormon church. My uncle was not a Mormon and if your not mormon. You are not even allowed to come to their own son's wedding. That is why they have a whole community full of Mormons and almost nothing but a whole State full of Mormons. Scientology just gets more physical with the law than Mormons if your not with their church.
It was the same story with my mormon business partner.
I think Religion separates more people rather than brings people together worldly and universally.
It's never a big deal in the beginning, until the relationship gets serious or there are kids involved.
For it to work, you'd both need to have a few serious talks on what the status quo should be going forward (should you both maintain your individual religion or should one person convert), you'd also need to determine what religion the kids should assume or if they should be allowed to decide for themselves when they grow.

I enjoyed this well-rounded article by a Mormon and a professor of religious history. Have any of you read it and do you have any comments on it? I'll try putting the link here and hope it works.http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/04/opini … .html?_r=2

The members of Westboro Baptist Church need to realize the true meaning of Christianity. These people can be aptly described as hatemongers. They believe that LGBT people are doomed and deserve to have AIDS. They are also against the sociopolitical...

So I listen to people talk about leaving their marriages and throwing in the towel for a number of reasons but I wonder why do people marry people when they know it will be a disaster. How can you hate someone you claim to love so much almost overnight? Seriously. Why would you get...
