    Perhaps because marriage is only contemplated after a while, and your religious conceptions can rub off on your partner? I for one know numerous Heathens who started out seeing a nominally Christian lass, or an Agnostic lass - but by the time they proposed, their good example had led their partner to adopt their ancestral faith, too.

    Marriage is a higher commitment, and perhaps for that an agreement as to central issues is needed. If still dating or in an early phase of a relationship then perhaps certain views, including religious conception might still be different, with enough time and scope for a common ground to be found. You know, whether we like it or not - we usually are influenced somewhat by the views of our partner.

    I know for myself that I would start seeing an Agnostic lass or even a nominally Christian lass who feels somewhat disjointed from that faith --- but I would probably only marry her if by the stage I were contemplating marriage, we were in agreement that our children should grow up with my Odinist faith.

    It depends on the religion; also on the degree of religiosity.

    For example, two Christians from a different church (Lutheran and Protestant, for example), would hypothetically do better than a Christian and a Muslim. I believe in such cases one of the two has to convert for the marriage to be carried over (bureaucratically).

    Also if two people are stated as being of Christian religion in their ID cards (as is the case with me and all Greeks ) and yet they don't believe in Christianity, and/or don't practice it, I don't see the problem of marrying an atheist, a Christian, a heathen, a Buddhist and so on.

    But that is all hypothetical.

    Put two actually religious people, say, a Heathen woman with a Christian man in the same room and let's see how long they last. LOL The number of the nearest hospital should come in handy, too

    Only in this example but I wouldn't bet that a Catholic and a Protestant or a Catholic and an Orthodox would get on too well.

    I can totally dig what you're saying (especially when it comes to Catholics and Protestants... )

    I'm an Atheist and almost all of my friends are Christian, but we have a good understanding and never argue in a bitter way. Even the girl I'm trying to date is very Christian but she doesn't mind that I'm an Atheist.

    There are loads of Catholic-Protestant marriages in my family. It's not an insuperable barrier. It can be difficult, though.

    It's worked for my maternal grandfather and grandmother. My grandfather was educated in the Catholic faith (was even sent to a boarding school led by monks! ) whilst my grandmother was educated in a family which had in past generations been full of Protestant priests.

    Then again - neither of them were ever so zealous about their denomination as my paternal grandparents ... I probably doubt that it would have worked then.

    I'm think it depends on the religion.
    I'm can't make friends with adherents to dogmatic,
    strict religions,
    like Islam, Judaism, or Christianity.
    They have closed minds,
    to them it's heaven or hell,
    and only their religion is salvation.
    These religions are about imposing and converting and submitting everyone.
    Inevitably I'd be one of the subjects to conversion.
    Every conversation with them turns the same.
    That I must accept their truth as the only truth,
    as the only way.
    The Muslims from all are the most annoying.
    I'm can make friends with an agnostic or atheist or irreligious,
    because they're less pushy and annoying.

    seriously, those are trainwrecks protestant and catholic marriages are ah! my family is split cause of their views. I have nothing against the idea..just my family is rediculous about it.
