You know we have the same thinking. I will respect her even if she will not convert to my religion.

Changing religion because you love your bf does not sit well with me. You should change religion because you found God in that religion. Your love for the Almighty must be above than the love for your bf. If you change religion only for the sake of the bf then your bf is your god.

I second to this guy. His right, you should change religion if you found God in that religion not just for the sake of your bf. Maybe you should go with him in their church for you to find out their beliefs. If your not convince and couldn't accept their teachings, well I advice you to stay being a Catholic and let go. Because eventually your different beliefs will cause your disagreement.

It depends. What if you don't believe what INC's is teaching, would you still change your religion for him?

i will say that what you have planned to do is right........... i think that when there is marriage between two religion then the girl should come ahead to get converted because if the girl gets converted there wont be any problem but if the man gets converted then many problems will be there.......... anyway it is my thinking

SInce you and your BF are in different it doesn't matters.. it is not required to change your religion until he compel you to change..life can be led with understanding,love,care and happiness not the religion brings you all these..

It really depend if you belive in what your religion says. If you do how can you chenge it? I am a Humanist, do not believe in God but I respect people who do. And your bf should as well. Don't you think?

I would not change my religion for him as i have to lay down in my own grave after I die and will have to answer for what I did and for what reason,however I'll try to study his religion if its the ture one then I am going to change it otherwise I'll make him adopt mine if it is the true one

Congratulations because you really love your boyfriend. But if he insists that you change your religion for him, I'm sorry, in that case I don't think he loves you. No one can ever dictate my religious beliefs. I will believe what I feel in my heart should be believed. If my future wife has a different religion I would respect that and not ask her to convert to mine.

First of all I'd like to know what kind of religion INC is. I live in Italy, but I've never been Catholic. Only you can decide if to change religion or not, but you should wander: will you be happy after changing religion? Religion is a thing that belongs only to us, this must not care to our mate. If I was on your place I'd change religion if I don't really believe in the religion my parents taught me, but if to me my religion is important I'd never change it. If my mate can understand this well, if not, bye bye.

My dear, your just showing to him that you'll do everything for him... you must be the boss not him. But, if that is what you really want... then i respect your opinion but you must always open a second option in this kind of situation. BTW, what is INC?

There's a tagalog term for this "Depende sa kumporme". It depends on the situation, if you really love the guy, that ur willing to change your belief, then it's practically ok, it can go the other way also. On the other hand, shifting religions is not as easy as changing cellphones, it may greatly affects one's ways of living in more than one aspect. One should have a really good thought before making a decision.

No. I am a baptist and my wife is INC. She change her religion for me, not the other way around. Oh! I think it is different if it's on the girls view, but heck, no religious bashing, but I will even be atheist as long as I am not in my wife's religion. Peace. Make Love not War.

No, definately not! You shouldn't change your religion. It is really bad. Christianity is the way; don't change just because he is different. Just be yourself; you have to get him to change, not you yourself. Remember, good luck and let jesus be with you!

i am also catholic, i do believe in doing good things but i don't usually go to church. but changing to a different religion would be no problem with me just as long as i am not forced to be religious. i believe in doing right things for others and that wouldn't change even if my religion changes, but i wouldn't be putting effort like going to churches every week if the new religion requires.

Lol.. if you are willing to do that, then it means you don't really believe in religions (maybe at least yours) and/or take them seriously... much like a fashion that can be changed to suite your needs... If deep inside you you don't really believe, then by all means don't be afraid to express your thoughts and let go... much better that way (only if you don't believe).
