    Sure, as long as none of their specific values contradict mine (e.g. no sex before marriage) and they don't insist that I convert.

    Wouldnt the poll be better if there was an option saying 'would not marry outside religion' because right now we are not getting a real comparison.

    I voted "I am a Christian man and I would marry someone with a different religion" because love should know no boundaries, especially if it is religion.

    I'm an atheist and although I would marry somebody who believes in a certain religion, if they are strict about it then I couldn't do it.

    Yh, at the end of the day religion is just the beliefs of the person it doesn't define them all that much. I would see no problem with it as long as we weren't pressured to convert to the same religion, as I would respect their morals and way of life and would expect the same.

    Err why is there no 'no' option?

    And no, I wouldn't. It would be like dating someone who believes in Santa Claus or that the Earth is flat, neither of which are any more/less logical than belief in a god.

    im Atheist. I would but my partner would have to accept that I wont be converting. However out of respect I would go to Church with them. I doubt a relationship were one partner is religious and one is not would work well, an old friend had parents like that. They'd argue quite a lot and basically lived together for their kids, not for love, in the end,

    It's not a "yes or no" question to me. It's like being asked "Would you, provided you REALLY needed the toilet, piss on somebody if they were on fire?", it depends on the person.
