I believe it is very important especially for the kids they can become easily confused and it can stress out a marriage.

no my spouse does not believe any thing or poweer high than herself. i believe in God or a high power. She says that she can not beileve in religion any more because of how the christian faith treats people and only uses those who meet the expecations of the chruch. I belive and feel that I do belong to a power much greater than myself. I do not believe that the bible is a correct describtion because it as been translated so much and that the orginal hebrew was not fully inderstood and the one translating. I do believe that the ten command are a wonder guide to love by. I do believe that we are to love another and to love thy neighbor as thy self. If people do only follow those elev guides then there would be any wars ,prejudice or hate.

Religion is purely personal. Our family members belong to one religion. Our religious feelings are one and the same and hence the question of its bearing on children is not applicable. Unlike elsewhere in the world, here the family bondage is very high and it is tied by love and affection rather than any commandments.

I am Budhhaist and my hubby is a Christian. We talk about how we choose for our kids when they grew up. We really dont care about that right now. I dont mind my children grew up in church at all. My hubby dont mind if they decided not to go. Religion is not that important to me right now.

I think it is important for the two of you to have widely differing beliefs, in order that your children may grow up in as confused a manner as humanly possible.
