When it comes to love nothing can stand between it, even if you have different beliefs. If she truly loves you she wont care if your an athiest she'll just pray that one day you'll be also a christian. But it all differs, i used to be at the same position as you. My ex is an athiest and im a christian. My dad hated him and me cos his an athiest and im with him. I didnt care what my father thinks cos i believed God had a plan for me and him and somehow convert him. I didnt tell him be a christian but the first time i talked about God he joked about it, i ignored it but when he went to far it offended me and that was our first and biggest arguement, it was a conflict between us. He had told me to never mention or talk to him about God, i was hurt but it was the only way to avoid that conflict. But through out our relationship he became open about it. My dad was the only one who was standing in the way cos my ex saw that if we were christian and it was talked to be a good religion and it would bring good in life why is my dad like that to me and him. Especially when my dads a pastor. But another conflict we went through was when I told my ex I want to put God first, and he got jealous cos of it. The other one that might also come across your gf's mind is the future, every devoted christian girls wants their kids to be raised as christians knowing God the way we had and that also bring conflict if your not a believer. Theres always a conflict, i believe thats why girls prefer to be with someone with the same religion
Like many have said it's usually due to beliefs. In Islam, a woman is NOT allowed to marry a non-Muslim man. Some go and break that rule though. Just as I am a Jew, my faith tells me to marry only Jews, but I think that if you truly love and cherish that person, then it shouldn't matter what religion they practice. Jews/Muslims believe that you are only half your religion until you marry someone from that religion, then you are complete with God.
As with any interfaith relationships there will be arguments between family. The biggest one is when it comes to raising the children's religion. In Islam and Judaism, the father's religion constitutes the child's religion, but not always. This can bring problems if one family wants their grandkids to be of their religion.
Other arguments can spark such as how to dress and eat. In Orthodox and Hasidic Judaism, we have laws about what's kosher and how to dress in front of women. There are no such rules in Christianity, so this can lead to tension if the partner prefers his/her wife/husband to dress the same way. Also, sex can be seen differently in religion. In Islam, a man has a right to his wife's body when he chooses, whereas some other religions give consent to the woman's desires.
All in all, I think that if you love that person, then nothing should matter. It shouldn't matter if they're of different religion, race, nationality, none of it should matter.
i dont think that,diferent religion doesnt make any change if she likes you.i saw a couple 6 months ago.they were from two diferent religions. they were both happy.and one day in class room,i was sitting front of them with my ex, then our teacher began discusing about his religion with students.and he mentioned religion of boy an said that.they are liars...e.t.c.i wont tell you the names of two religion.then the girl holded her boyfriend,s hand an said"it doesnt matter to me that in which religion you believe,but am sure believe that am in love with you.he smiled at her..............it means if she really love,s ya she wont think that you are from diferent religion.she will love ya,until the rest of her life.thank you very much.
I don't do that, but there are many who actually stick to dating people with the same religion. Rather, because they don't want to have arguments/tension? I know that, in Asia and maybe other countries, parents set their children up on dates with people of the same nationality and religion so that the couple has 'more in common'. And because the same religion will lead to a greater understanding of the other person? Like as a buddhist, my family prays at an altar everyday, if I married a man of another religion, there may be tension over understanding or comprehension of the other my religion.. Just an assumption here.
***why do girls not date guys that are a different religion?***
That is not true, it depends on the individual. My boyfriend and I have different beliefs. When we started dating he was atheist and I was Christian. Now I am agnostic.
However for some girls and guys their religion is extremely important and they feel that it is very important to make sure that they date someone with the same beliefs and values.
In any relationship there has to be compromise and sacrifice, but not to the point where you are compromising your values/beliefs because that is the foundation of how you live your life. Also, if someone is strong in what they claim to believe, how could they ever stay truly and completely committed in a relationship that contradicts that. It may seem shallow, but I do think it should be something to consiter.
because they are religious.. Im Jewish but I've had many Christian boyfriends..but I'll never marry a non Jew..why? because Im a religios Jew, and I want to have a Jewish family in the future and raise my children in Judaism....for some other girls is also because they parents dont like for them to get wed with someone outside their religion
It is not what pleases God....For christians it even says it in the bible..if a girl or a boy is really into God and then they date someone who is not. That person will not support his/her beliefs and will eventually take her away from Gods path. A relationship without God wll not work out the same as one that has that connection to God :)
The best thing is to be honest with her. The sooner the better. The longer you put it off, thw worse it's more than likley going to be. Not becuz you're not of her religion, but becuz you decieved her for so long. Dont forgt to tell her why you hid it from her as well when you do tell her. Best of luck dude 1_~
another reason y some christians dont marry ppl of other religons is that they believe that God has unique plans for there life (to serve him: open charity, open church, be a missionary, ect.) and they believe that if their partner mite get in the way of that.
thats exactly what im going through. im atheist but ,y gf doesnt know and she thinks im christian and she said that she would never date a guy thats not christian or catholic but she wont marry the catholic??
im confused on what to do
I am dating someone of a different religion then myself, it's probably not as big of a deal as you think it is. If she really cares about you, she'll understand. Just eplain yourself well and talk to her about it.
Awwwww Why would anyone do that!!! I wouldn't do that to a boy....But religion shouldn't matter IT'S ABOUT LOVEE!!!
XD(my mom would freak'n coke my azz if she heard me say that :p)
some girls choose not 2 becuase of different values and beliefs, while others do actually. they try to convert the other into their religon or just ignore it
because they dont want to? Its a personal choice. As long as the person in question made it, their decision should be respected.
Some girls do, but it can make the relationship complicated and there is also the parents, maybe they wouldn't approve :)
Some religions are more exclusive than others. If she really likes you, she shouldn't care what religion you are.
Not always true...im an athiest and my fiance is a christian. See my question below.
cause of the different religions and beliefs
cuz of diff beliefs
coz they r stupid
