Discussion: Is religion an important factor in finding a partner?

Post by nirvana » Sun Jun 28, 2009 7:31 am

Would you be able to date someone with a very different religion? Would religion be a deciding factor in whether or not to date that person? Also, would you take into consideration what you would do if you did date them, and went onto have children?

I know for me this is not a huge deal, I was raised christian, but am agnostic now, and I feel as long as the other person has similar morals and values to me, I wouldn't care either way, but I know this is not the same for everyone, and I was wondering how you all felt on the subject.

I think as long as both partners are respectful of anothers religion/spirtual beliefs, then it wouldn't really matter to me...........I was raised Catholic but am agnostic now (Louise its scary, we are similar)

Religion isn't an important factor to me since I am also agnostic. I was raised as Jewish but later realized a confusion about religion that lead me to being agnostic. I don't care what religion my partner is AS LONG as they do not impose it ONTO me. That is one thing I highly dislike.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

I wouldn't turn down a date with someone just because of their religion but if they disrespected my views on what I believe then it would be over very quickly. If they can respect my views and I can respect theirs, then why allow that to keep you apart?
