Would you be prepared to change your religion to be with the one you love or is your religion of the utmost importance no matter what?

no I wouldn't. because you can't just decide to stop beleiving what you beleive, and start beleiving something else. what you beleive in isn't a choice, but a conclusion drawn from your own life experiences. if it changes, then it's because you find something else out that rings more true to you, or experiences in your life lead you to beleive differently. not because you decide to change. and I wouldn't want to be with someone who expected me to change for them. if they love me then they love who I am. including my religion. someone who loves you wouldn't expect you to change something so much a core part of you as what you beleive in. and I wouldn't expect them to change their beleifs for me.

My husbands family are catholics - he would say he has no religion and I am a practising witch. We are all happy in our own choices and no-one would preach to the other about what choices they make.

No. But for me religion doesn´t count much. I live my life like "do only the things to others that you like to be done to yourself".

If someone loves you he or she should accept you the way you are whether you are an atheist a christian or a muslim or whatever religion. If your partner is not willing to accept your religious beliefs than something is wrong with the relationship. I would not go further witha person who tries to force and impose his beliefs on me.
