Dating person different religion
But I guess that’s where the factor of how religious one person is.
If religion is not a large part of your life then it is not going to matter if you find a partner that fits your religious practice.
When I was younger, my mother tried to set me up on a date. Please, take a moment to picture this: me being nagged everyday about if I talked to Christopher, how Chris was doing, her waving to him across the parking lot when she picked me up after class as I shoved my head under a rock somewhere. Perhaps then I am saying this because of how I was raised, but to me, religion should play key role in determining relationships.
What I find most interesting about the whole ordeal is that my mom did not base her desire for us to end up together off his personality; in fact she barely knew anything about him. Religion is a powerful thing; it shapes our perception of the world, can change our lives and bring comfort to some of our most unanswerable questions.
Finding somebody you connect with and establish a long-term relationship with is not simple.
And if you find that special person, it would seem trivial to give them up for, what may seem at times, an intangible world of promises.
The problem with mixing different religions and dating is that for many people following your given religion is the sole purpose of life, so how can you end up with someone who practices a faith that challenges and questions everything you base your life on?
I’m not saying I think it’s mandatory one marries within their marriage, I just think that doing so prevents a lot of problems down the road.
Being with someone of the same religion helps establish better grounds for agreement in the relationship.
But like many women, I always knew I had some things I needed to do on my own before I even considered crossing the altar with someone (travel the world, kiss a girl, learn a romance language), but I never thought I'd be at the point where I'd have to actively look for love the way I have been over the last few years.
Unfortunately, I don't mean a ménage-a-trois in that sexy French way.
