A family that prays together (worships together, prays to the same god together), stays together

If the each of the couples beliefs are total opposites there is no way they can sustain a marriage. It more than tolerance and acceptance it also about making changes be willing to bend and make compromises. And many are not willing to make compromises on their faith.

Some people can do it and some people can't.

I am also an atheist with a Christian and it works ok. We both already have children and won't be having any together and that makes things easier - I think it would cause friction if we were to have children. He would want to raise them his way and I would want to raise them my way. You can't really compromise on yes there is a God/no there isn't a God. But as it isn't an issue then religion really doesn't make any difference to us. I don't criticise his church and he doesn't criticise me for not going to church. Live and let live.

I think it also helps that we are both a bit older and wiser - I don't think I could have made it work when I was younger.

Yes, it can and it does.

I know a family where the husband is a muslim, the wife is a Christian, the live happily, no hating. The children were free to choose where they wanted to belong, and if you entered their house, you would never know that the two of them werent of the same faith, i mean with the level of love, acceptance and understanding.

its all about love

Mixed marriages can work, as long as a discussion is had before the wedding, so everyone knows what to expect. My sister is married to a Muslim, and before they got married, they decided that any children they have will be raised Muslim. As of now the kids are exposed to both religion.

It doesn't. At the end the man converts his wife to his religion.

What do u mean when u use the word 'work' in the marriage context?

Marriage is all about enduring outside you faith load of other things needs tolerance!

Two cannot walk together? hm, they are together if there are enduring aint they?b

What do u mean when u use the word 'work' in the marriage context? A lot of mixed religion marriages are being endured rather than enjoyed n to me such marriages aint working in the real sense of it. Two cannot walk together except they agree.

that dose not mean that all are happy in their marrage in Germany they are regarded as a sekt.

As in Big brother is watching u.

Any religion thats like that is not one i will go in for.

They go from house to house telling people that god will punish them if one dons not have time for them.

The best is they come early in the morning.

They last time they came here i was still sleeping (Unclad) my bell rang and i went to the door wrapped only in a blanket. They only said sorry and left,

ja i guess that shocked them.

The bible says, Marry only in the lord.Jehovah's witnesses will never marry an outsider, if he does,his standin in the congregation will not b firm any more.Note that there marriages hardly break up. They hardly divorce.

i think it can work when the two people respect others and other people's religion

IM sure the two religion preaches TOLERANCE and RESPECT-which most people tend to ignore

and the other thing is friends n family, some people might be okay with it but their friends hmm they'll quote different part of the BOOK just to fustrate da L.o.v.e

well uuummm one of my friends parents well they both christian,but goes to church on different days

the mom goes to church on saturday and the dad goes on sunday, the marriage isnt workin out so good,

the dad dont want his kids goin to church on satuday but instead on sundays,

the parents are not really together now, because the difference in religious beliefs is a big issue

i guess when your inlove anything goes eeeh until you get married then everything turns,

differences in religion it could work for somepeople and not for others, it all depends i think

but i think the best thing to do is always discuss the differences between the two first,

just understand each other, before it goes farther, if ya understand each other then,

i dont think theres gonna be any problem,
