I'm a Christian and I want to be in love with someone who had the same faith as I have but unfortunately it did not happen; instead, I have fallen in love with an agnostic guy. We are so in love with each other but when someone raised a topic about God, that's when the problem starts. We find ourselves starting to argue. Now here's my question: Do you guys think our relationship would work out?

I certainly couldn't have a lasting relationship with someone who believed that I should burn for eternity, so I guess it depends on your opinion in that regard.

The more important thing is that you love one another. Love is a bond stronger than any belief. If you are a christian then I believe God wants you to be in love with whoever makes you happy. If he is a good person than that is all that matters. God wants you to be happy.

Spike the lobster is right, it is not a problem, as ong as you love each other there will be no problem about it, try not to involve your personal belief to your personal affair, though it is hard to be in that situation, some broke up on that matter but as spike the lobster says you need to respect his point of view, then later on when things are going stronger try to talk about it little by little but not upto the point that it will cause you any misunderstandings. It is not easy to convert or made somebody believe on what you believe, it takes time for him to realize what are his priority. what you all need to do is just to try to avoid having a hard argumentation with your beliefs coz it willnot bring you any good in your relationship, it will just cause you both a conflict, conflict that may lead you to brake up. For now, enjoy what you both feel, enjoy being inlove because it is the most wonderful feeling that we could ever feel. try not to think anything, sometimes we made our own problems. Goodluck to you and your love one, it is the most precious gift from God.

If you love each other it shouldnt be an issue IMO...Its about respecting each other which comes with being in love with someone...My hubby is agnostic and from a very Christian upbringing, my bf is Christian and I'm Pagan/Buddhist....the hubby and I have great conversations over the years because he's always been curious but the bf and i just dont really talk religion for the most part because he has a hard time getting past his religion these days and accepting other paths (long story though to that fact)... If you love each other you must respect each other...and accept that what works for one isnt goign to work for someone else and thats just fine...

Only if you agree to disagree. My partner's a Christian and I'm pagan, but it's not a problem: I respect her view and she respects mine. We just agree to disagree and don't get bothered by it. If you treat it as an academic subject, rather than one full of emotion, it shouldn't be a problem at all.
