Does religion really matter in a relationship especially wen one of them is from a deep rooted religious background?

God comes first before self, therefore any relationship that will  hinder me from serving God is cancelled. For me and my house we will serve the lord. We dont live by feelings but by faith in God, my life in not my own so HE decided by his word. Light and darkness, how na? Never!!!

I know, but what i am saying is that, in any intimate relationship, love comes first or you have no relationship at all, whether you are religious or not.

So if you want to choose a partner with no love involved, then you have no partner.You can both be as religiously synced up as you wish, that relationship is doomed to failure either on the short run or on the longer run.

@Jagunlabi, Love is important in every relationship, agreed, but when it comes to religion,leave love out of it~the Bible says that darkness and light cannot fellowship together.Two people in a relationship with conflicting views and opinions may be able to rough it out for a while because they feel they are in love but when it comes down to the bare truth,it will cause a rift between the pair.Love can only thrive in an environment where there is agreement between the tow parties.for the two of them to overcome any obstacle,spiritual or otherwise,they need to be harmonious in their religious views or else,

all u guys who say religion matters in a relationship are only thinking from a religious point of view. As for me an athiest i can marry a christian just that we'll have to respect each others beliefs. Religion is not what defines a relationship.

Religion does matter. This love thing has been overused. Religious disparity

in a couple where one is a devoted christian and the other is not so much

into the bible brings incompatibility to the relationship. Wife will never miss

church but husband needs extra sleep on Sunday morning because he had

downed much beer the night before. Resentment sets in when she has to

attend church alone and he wakes up wishing the party could continue in

bed for him that morning.The consequences are endless. Better avoided o.

Exactly why many relationships failed today. They misunderstood that concept, unconditional love, they ended up getting together in an unconditional lust, instead of love. B4 they found out their mistakes, it becomes to late. I hope you are not one of those believe in those old concept of love is blind.There is nothing unconditional with someone whom we share opposite views on 90% or major view.

No matter how you see it man, it is always wise to be in a relationship with someone you both share the same view.

@poster

religion DOES matter,especially if the man is a moslem because a real moslem will never allow the wife and children to practise another religion,also while a chriastian can tolerate it he would wish that the wife was a christian like he is which might bring conflicts

No, love goes way beyond just mutual understanding and communication, although the two are part of the game.To love is to accept the object of your love totally for what he/she is, and who he/she is unconditionally. 

There is no relationship in which there is no form of discord, unless the two involved are robots or cyborgs running on the same program.Besides, wy expect miracles in anything?

If true love is the focal point of any relationship and nothing else, it will always work.That is my own opinion.

If religious views are that important in a relationship, how come then that there are so many divorce cases amongst christian couples?Statistics are not on your side on this one.

Oh, i did understand her question, but you don't seem to understand my response.

Well, i'll agree with you there because pure and untainted love is devoid of any religious affiliations.

I know, but what i am saying is that, in any intimate relationship, love comes first or you have no relationship at all, whether you are religious or not.

So if you want to choose a partner with no love involved, then you have no partner.You can both be as religiously synced up as you wish, that relationship is doomed to failure either on the short run or on the longer run.

Religion can only be as important as the couple builds it up to be.But a relationship that is not built on true love is bound to fail, with or without religion.If the two people involved are not bound by love, then they have no relationship to begin with.Religion is just as extra spice in the relationship which may help solidify the relationship even more if the two are of the same faith.Remember that there are millions of love couples all over the world who are not even religious.So the only common denominator here is L.O.V.E for one another.Any other factor, like i said before, is just an extra spice.
