    Muslim here. Tbh I have no clue. I'm not particularly religious so I wouldn't want to marry someone more religious than I am because then they'll try to make me religious. But then if I married someone who wasn't Muslim, my family would be pissed. Anyway I'm 23 and have no plans to get married at least for another 6 years.

    EDIT
    Maybe I'll get a cat.

    Yep. Would have no issues with it.

    My partner and I are different religions, and we just leave each other to whatever the other wants to do. It helps that we're both very mild with our beliefs.

    The main difference between us is that he was forced into his religion growing up, whereas I was just left to educate myself and choose one (if any) for myself when I was old enough to understand. We've agreed that when/if we have kids, we'll take that approach as well - teach them about all religions in an unbiased manner and let them choose their own, if any.
    Agreed:yep:

    Feel what sugar? :innocent:

    Contradictory, as one has to have 'faith' in order to be an atheist (to believe that there is no God, in the absence of incontrovertible evidence) :beard:

    Us agnostics do not have a firm 'belief' either way, hence we're the least 'religious' :yeah:
    Being atheist doesn't necessarily mean a 100% certainty of the non-existence of God.

    But to answer the question, yes I would. I'm athiest and would have no problem being with someone who thinks the existence of a god is likely- that's irrelevant to me. What is relevant is the values and dogmas they posess surrounding that belief. No religious conservatism for me thank you.

    For sure, but it does mean more of a firmly held belief than us 'on the fence' agnostics

    Kind of makes your point about it requiring faith void, though

    Well if it works it works, regardless of religion. Obviously if they want to push their religion on you or want to restrict yours or someone else's life because of their belief then no.

    Nothing is stopping you having your own beliefs while in a relationship.

    Info: I'm not religious - could arguably call me an atheist but if I had a good relationship with a religious person then why not. I would try to discuss what we believe and what it gives to us but there's no need to be pushy.

    This may be thinking too far ahead, but don't push yours or your partner's religions onto your children, let them make their own choices on what they believe, with a little guidance on what is right and wrong of course.

    Hope this can help

    Something like that, yes. The would certainly be schooled in the bible, not least because it's legacy is a cornerstone of our civilisation :jebus:

    Only as long as they were open to the idea that it's only a belief, and don't try and 'convert' me into a believer :lol:

    I'm a pretty devout atheist :yep:
