How important for you is the religion of your partner? Do you share common religious views? Can you be tolerant each to other if you are with different views or if one of you is religious and the other-not?

It is important for me to have a partner who shares the same religious beliefs. I would like to be able to freely practice my religion, and take part in the various rites and traditions. It is a must for me to attend the Sunday mass and it is a family event for me growing up. It is also easier because I would not want my child to have to be brought up in two different religions that could confuses him. Religion requires adherence to a specific set of beliefs and it could cause conflict between the couple. I know that there are some couples of different religions who can make it work but that would be more of an exception than the rule.

From one point view it`s normal for one mother to want her child not to be confused from different religions of the parents.Ok.But from other side where is his/her choice, his free will? And what if your partner is atheist? Or your child is atheist? I think that the religious views must not be dominant and so formal, they must have the possibility to be discussed.
