Is religion affects you in making decision in terms of relationship? I haven't experience that we having different religion. But i'm open for that matter. Yet you do you accept someone who is not belong to your religion?

It should be alright to have relationship with different religion belief, as long as the religion is unrelated to cult belief or satanic worship, if both don't hold extreme view and insist on his/her own religion is better than the other, i think the relationship will work out well when both respect the other's belief. Try not to impose your belief system on her/him.

The relationship should be about the feelings not about nothing else.

Yes, it all depend on the maturity and intelligent of both to have the relationship going well, if they can't feel and treat each other in a mature way, and place their relationship above their own belief system for the sake of love instead of some unknown super natural forces, then the relationship will suffer big set back and not worth to continue.

Totally agree with you. It's all depends on their hands. Decisions should came from their own .

Of course. If I love a person, I wouldn't let his religion stop me. That depends though on what kind of action he does by following the teachings of his religion. I've been with my boyfriend for almost 5 years. He's a mormon and I'm a roman catholic. we have no problems whatsoever regarding religion. We follow the same God, the religion just have different interpretations but they are not that different really. besides, i don't like arguing about religion. it could divide people if they tend to be dramatic over it.

Its true that religion affects in making any decision. And it still happens in rural areas. But in urban areas it doesn't affect. Time has changed and eve

I haven't experience this kind of situation, but if happen that if my boyfriend has a different religion that would depend if what kind of religion. As long as I understand his kind of religion and it will not affect our relationship why NOT? But I am not convert my own religion just for him, I will respect his own belief and religion and vise versa. I can say religion is a big factor because this is a major factor that really affects your relationship with your partner. You have to know a person first not only in his cultural background but his attitude towards a lots of things, so your relationship will be smooth all throughout.

I agree with you. I can accept whatever religion s/he belong but i wont ever convert because of him/ her. Why? because before we know each other i already belong in my religion and so he is. He must accept it too.

I have friends from all religion and i believe that religion should not hinder your life when it comes to dealing with people. You may believe whatever religion but that should be your personal view. I believe all is one. There is one supreme being. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

I'm willing to have friends who belong to another religion. As long as they fear God and they won't do any harm on me. It's cool. :)

I believe that religion has a big factor when it comes to relationship. Once the couple decided to get marry- there might start the issue/s. What church to wed- what beliefs their children may/should follow. So, for me religion matters in a relationship.
