    This question is for Christian women:
    Would you give up your religion if you thought you could find a suitable relationship with a person of another faith?

    :ref: Please define "another faith" Are we talking Judaism, Islam, Jehovahs Witnesses?

    or Wiccans, Hindu, Buddists, etc

    Nope, because my "suitable relationship" could only be w/ a man
    of the Christian faith. Karmashines, would you give up Kemetics to
    enter into a "suitable relationship" w/ a man who was a follower of
    Jesus Christ ?

    I don't think i would give up my religious beliefs if they were truly important and meaningful to me; however, i would have no problem dating a good man and becoming more familiar with him and his beliefs. I would hope that our fundamental beliefs and morals were moderately compatible. Though we may not believe in all the same names and events, i would want us to agree on what character traits are important for us to have, how we would raise our children, how we would conduct ourselves in marriage (if we progressed to that level), and other things of that nature.

    Hey i agree completely with Saniah25...im a Christian man and i have dated many women who dont share my same faith in God and Jesus and thru my experience it didnt work out...sure,i had good times with them,and we got along great,but i couldnt see myself 'being' with them for certain reasons...but if i did consider 'being' with them,as in 'married' or being exclusive,then like Sanaih said,i would mest definately hope that our beliefs were compatible..Love is Love...
