Would you do it and try and learn everything about it or say no and stay with the religion you were raised with

I would be willing to learn about his religion and his beliefs, but in the end I would stay with my faith. It wasn't what I was raised with, but it's what I believe. I can't change what I believe for someone and if he loved me....he wouldn't ask me too.

You should have a religion because you genuinely believe in it, not because of a worldly reason.

Well, I am not the religion I was raised with because I was not confident in my faith. But if I were asked now to change my religion, I would not. I would respect his religion and would be very interested in learning more. But I would not change my religion because it is what is right for me. I am currently with my partner that for many years, he and I, have been different religions. I respected his religion and we didn't talk about my upon his request. Well, it took several years, but one day without my knowledge, he bought a book and read about my relgion. And since then, we have celebrated religious sabbats together.

I think we should love someone for what they are and not want to change them. Therefore I don't feel that a husband / boyfriend, as stated, should even request such a thing. The trouble is organised religions often do more harm than good.
