When people love each other than they should respect each other believes, and not try to convince each other. Then that would be a good foundation for a marriage. That saying, when two people are on one line about respect, then it doesn't matter what one of them love to do, believes, say, or what they do in there free time, that is all possible when two people respect each other.
So it would be more advisable that two people respect each other before they get marriage, instead of worried about believes. Because two people with the same believe could get marriage and get annoyed by the hobbies, social life or other activities or about different opinions.
Like how i live on this moment, i live for 20 years happily together with someone who has a complete different background, culture, religion, mentality, love for music, dance, food then i do, and we had never had problems about it, because we simply respect each other decisions, choices, opinions or believes. Everyone can do that to!
It is possible. I know of a lady who is a Christian and got married to a Muslim.
It's just a matter of understanding.
In my very candid opinion I'd not advise such. It could be very detrimental to a healthy relationship.
As much as it's good to encourage and promote unity, having diverging views about religion could break you than you imagine, especially if you're from my part of the world, Nigeria.
Even when you're of the same religion but your belief and doctrine are contradictory, it would lead to frequent quarrels because you will have a lot of differing opinions on things.
Moreso if you're of different religions, the choice of which religion child should practice would also come to the fore and Little things like this break up families.
I'd rather advise a person goes for someone with similar views regarding religion.
My wife had a family friend who was raised Christian. He married a Muslim. And he had to CUT HIS DICK.
If a guy loved the woman more than his dick, maybe.
I would cut my dick for no woman.
It depends on those who are involved. And by this I mean it depends on how religious tolerant they are. All religions ultimately preach love and respect for the supreme being.
So, if the parties involved are ready to marry, nobody should stop them.
For me it's not advisable because problems will always arise,and one of the things that is not supposed to be an issue amongst couples is their religious beliefs,also a woman it's supposed to submit to her man,and also follow his lead,this might pose a problem to them and it would also affect their kids because they would grow up being confused on the path to follow while each of the parents would be insisting on their beliefs.
While love is the greatest, frustration is real. Pain is real. Discord is real, and all these resist the growth of love. No, they won't kill love, but they would render it inconsequential.
Only love is not enough.
You need to be like your partner in many important things, and everyone with half a brain knows that we are a product of our beliefs. If you and your partner basically belief different things, you are definitely on different paths.
It is possible, some people, many people, have done it and people are still doing it, but if two people strongly stand for different religious beliefs, it is not advisable that they get married. That is being unequally yoked.
The only thing which should count is the fact that two people love and appreciate each other. Everything else should come second place.
For two people to become one, there has got to first be an understanding of the background of each person and not only just a background, but there also has to be an intense loosing of one's old self to blend with a partner who loses his/her old self too. Now. by old selves I mean things they used to believe in and stuffs. Once that connection is established they can present it before their parents, though often times most parents don't agree with the choice, if you have with you a strong reason why you think it should work then, it's a good idea. Even when life brings you obstacles like; how can two different religion marry? Both of you can find a common ground or submit to each other and choose which religion to practice that will favor you and your children and your generations to come.
Bottom line is if you come to an understanding with your partner and parents and religious leaders then you can go ahead with it. Although some people think it's impossible to marry a person who practices another religion different from yours, I like to believe that Anything is Possible if you will only put your mind and heart to it.
