I am not in favour of inter-religious marriages.As such marriages these days are getting very difficult.THere are umpteen issues between a husband and a wife and causes for controversy and conflict are increasing day by day.Now should religion be added to it? I feel it is not necessary.The youngsters are born and brought up in totally different surroundings and this will have an impact on their faith. Even if one person is deeply religious there is bound to be controversy.

Hi Kalav, Your view is correct.Nowadays controversy and conflict between husband and wife are getting increase.People has to get more understandings between them to avoid fight.As you said religion is not a matter for living together.

Religion is a barrier to love. Yes I do accept it. I need this thing to be changed and it is all in our(Youths) hand. In our primary schooling we learn a lot about all religion are equal, to respect humans.. but the fact is we are not following it in our real life... I do not believe in religion... Hope so you also...

I'm a born again christian and my husband is a roman catholic. and we've been together for four years and never had any kind of dispute pertaining to religion. we know how to respect each other`s beliefs. i guess it was easier for me at first because i grew up in a family where we had two religions as well, and it never seemed to bother any of us. we never insisted on "converting" the other. i guess it's just similar to working hard to make any relationship work. it takes understanding, and respect. And we never let anything get in the way of our relationship.

for me religion is not a barrier to love those people are very stupid you know. religion is not a problem at all we must respect others. and if we really love we respect and religion doesnt matter at all^^ for me if a guy i love has a religion different than mine i be with him anyway. and if he doesnt want to be with me bcs of religion is bcs he doesnt love me enough. love is more important than religion^^ for me and for everyone it should be^^

It is very ironic to say that "religion" is definitely a barrier to love. It is because they need to survive, they need to prove that they are the 'only religion' on earth which is fond of by God. On this position they'd take every effort to ensure that they are on the right way.

Religion definitely is a barrier to love sometimes. It's not necessarily that they don't want to marry outside their religion. In many cases its because they can't. For example, muslim woman have to marry a muslim man.. And I believe muslim men can marry outside their religion but its not preferred. Its the same with Jehovah's Witnesses and other religions. Also religion can lead to many heated arguments if you and your partner have different beliefs. Which religion would your kids go by? Things like that. Sometimes if you really love someone though you can overcome that barrier. Me and my boyfriend aren't the same religion.

religion should be like guideline for human morality. but I was wondering, why it called religion. difference in religion believes often related to destruction and murders. you should say, it became barrier for someone from different religious background to have love towards each others.

True love never see barriers. If two people really love each other, religion is out of the question. There's a lot who have successful marriage despite having a different religion.

Sometimes, religion can be a barrier to people who are in love. It takes two to make a relationship work. Sometimes, all one has to take is that both of the people involved really have to work hard to make the relationship with work. Whether it be age problem, religion or money problems, it is the two in the relationship should try to make it work.
