Its only the person whom we marry matters and not their religion. Its we people who created cast and religion so let us only destroy it...... If both Love each other truthfully then it would definitely work well. Hey friend do you got any such kind of plans?

if people really love each other and their love is true for one another, i dont think should matter. but many people r very traditional and ritualistic with their own religion that they dont let work and put barriers between themselves and others. there is only ONE GOD that all religions worship, they just worship that one God in their own cultural way and language, that makes them differ from other religions. their culture makes them different not the actual religion they worship. so if the couple can tolerate each other's culture, than they should make their marriage work. marriage is all about complementing one another and being one.

I'm in the U.S. and it's not a big deal in the communities I have lived in or with my family members and friends. My exhusband was of a different religion but we married in my church, which was permitted after we attended a class. One of my sisters converted to her husband's religion before marrying him and my other sister had a civil ceremony when she was married.

i think your religion is something deep between only you and God and it has nothing to do with your partner or any human around you.

but dnt you people think that different religions become a conflicting point between the partners... esp when each of them wants their children to persure ones religion?

if they are understanding enough to deal with that marriage in the first place,they are understanding enough to figure it out for their kids

i do believe that a marriage can work no matter what religion the couple is..if you truly love someone then language, culture, race, religion or any other matters, should not be an issue or barrier. i've seen and heard many people who marry other people that's not the same race/religion as them and they are happy together. But i guess when in an inter-racial relationship, the couple must know that they might face problems or that there are people who wouldn't approve of their relationship. they have to work together and stand by each other to try to overcome the problem. if they love each other, then they would not mind the obstacles that they have to go thru. i admire those who are in that kind of relationship, and how their strength, courage and love for each other made their relationship possible.

To me that is a question without an answer. It does not depend on the religion of the parties but the people themselves. Their openmindedness, their tolerance, their conception of themselves, their God and the world. Me I would not at all care what religion my man had unless he tried to pressure me into something I would not like. But then again I would not tolerate any man pressuring me into anything
