Love, sacrifice and religion
May 8, 2010 8:10pm CST
I am sure you all are familiar that there is love there is also sacrifice. This thing can't be separated from the appreciation of love and the purpose of our love. Although many oaths in the name of love is a bit irrational but can not be blamed for many cost justify and almost certainly all men would justify or approve it even though he himself would not necessarily do the things that became the oath of love. Maybe you personally would say in your heart, "Aaah ... it was silly, I will never do sacrifice like that." Although you can't justify to yourself but in practice you can't blame the perpetrators because you by in your heart has admit that the feeling of satisfaction in achieving goals should there sacrifice. Now, are you can blame if there someone who you respect said: "For my love, my religion also I'm sacrificed! If wealth, occupation, position, throne and my soul had sacrificed for love, so what weight for me to also sacrifice my religion because the woman who be my love does not trust with my religion". please explain your reason if you can blame ...

I thing for love we can sacrifice any thing but not a religion. I always think a person who sacrifice his religion for love its mean he put God in lower place and embarrassing God in public. God can give any thing we need, we just have to ask. Thats also happen in love we just has to ask our love of live thats God already provided for us and we don't have to sacrifice our religion. Remember God make every thing beautiful in his time and we just need to wait in faith.

I would be very concerned about someone who wanted me to give up my religion. In fact, I would take a long look at my relationship if I were already on a path of a good life and this person caused me to want to abandon everything that was familiar. Is it really love? It may be something else that is really destructive in the long run. Love usually does not demand sacrifice for the sake of sacrifice. There has to be a reason. It may be that if your new love does not trust your religion, she does not trust you either and may not love you as much as you think. In love, there has to be a mutual respect for each other and an understanding that you may be from different backgrounds and faiths and even have different dreams. The love should help each of you grow and be whole. The sacrifice should be made freely and out of love not under duress. In the case of British King Edward VIII who gave up the throne to marry twice divorced Wallis Simpson, in 1936, it was because the Church of England and Parliament would not allow him to ever marry her if he were king. He had to choose. King or husband? He decided he would rather be like everyone else and marry the woman he loved. Pressures outside the relationship forced this decision. There are people who do not have a true allegiance to the faith in which they were raised and follow a loved one into another faith - e.g. Christian to Jewish or Protestant to Catholic. They are attracted to the faith of the loved one because they admire the person they love and naturally want to share in something that is near and dear to that person. On the other hand, there are people who get along very well together altho each practices a different faith or one will be an atheist and the other a devout practicing member of some religion. If they truly are tolerant and respectful of each other they are able to work out the details when they have children. Sometimes it is difficult to pull a partner away from family and friends to move to another part of the country or to another country because of better job opportunities. Sometimes military families have a difficult time because of the moving around and being uprooted. one spouse is following the spouse that is in service. That is a big sacrifice. However, again, the pressure is external. The choice is made out of love. Even so, there is a high divorce rate there. I would never ask someone to give up his religion as a condition for being with me. If I had doubts about the intentions behind his religion then I would have doubts about him. There is a strong possibility that he would resent having made that decision in the future. It would be be so unfair to him.

advokatku Yes I can blame if in order to get the woman's love he has to give up every thing then its a one sided love, she only wants what we in the US would call a sugar daddy, a man who has wealth and will spend it on her, no its wrong to give evey thing up that is dear to the man for a woman who demands too too much. I am an elderly woman but would never have demanded all that from my husband. I did give up an inheritance from my dad as he did not like my husband, but I loved my husband and he loved me and if we sacrificed anything it was for the other, but not in greed at all.
