      Is it possible for a married couple to be on one accord serving two different religions? My hubby and I were discussing this and I would like to hear your views on this subject? I know there are many different religions and beliefs and all don’t believe in the same way or believe in the same God.

        • Yes....I’ve seen it work.  I use to work for a couple where she was Jewish and her husband was Methodist.  They were very tolerate of each other’s beliefs and actually practiced both.

        • In my childhood neighborhood there were several families who blended their religious beliefs, families that practice both my houshold included. One couple just celebrated their 50th wedding Anniversary. We were reared in both faiths and allowed to choose for ourselves as adults which one we wanted to practice. I belive that wehn people truly love and respect each other they can make it work. One family was Jewish and AME aanother was AME and Catholic, one family was Jewish and Catholic and one was UM and Islamic

        • I’m not too sure about this. I’m lucky as my husband and I are both the same religion and practice it too along with our girls. However, i do have married friends whose partners are different religions, in the beginning it was all very good until they had children. Even while the children were young everything was still good. Now that the children all are over 18 and understand both religions, they have to make the choice but dont want to upset neither of the parents...

        • My first husband and I were of different religions. His mother and sisters were horrible to me and it put a strain on our young marriage.

        • I was raised with my mom yelling and screaming at anyone that would talk of anything except what the bible said to her understanding.  She stopped going to church because she would argue that they didnt read the bible themselves.
          My dad was born Mormon (but stepped down or dropped out because he didnt like how much the meetings were geared to money management)

          Having said that... I admire everyones belief but I dont like it when people yell and scream defending their beliefs.  

          I actually get irritated when people posts bible quotes on my facebook page. So I started posting poker quotes to show up on their facebook pages- ohh I laugh... but I am serious

        • All I can say is I haven’t come upon that discussion in my own relationships as we were all Baptists. I now attend Methodist and to me there is no difference, we all believe in God and that’s all I need to know.

        • I think if you are committed to the relationship then the different religions will work out. I guess I thought most religions are based on tolerance and non judgemental so it shouldn’t be a problem. And if it is then chances are the marriage won’t work if neither is willing to convert.

        • Absolutely it’s possible!  My husband and I have been married for 20 yrs and when we first got married we practiced the same religion.  It was not until about 3 years ago, I became conscious & started questioning a lot of what I was taught in religion.  

          I no longer attend the church my husband does, but we still love and respect each other enough that it has not affected our marriage.

          It’s almost impossible for a couple to live together for many years & not change.  Our bodies change & so do our beliefs systems.  The worst thing anyone can do is stay stuck in a belief system because of what someone else believes.  I believe each and every person should let peace reign in his/her heart so they can manifest a life of peace, love & abundance.
