We get along splendidly because we love and respect one another and therefore don't argue about our religious differences.

    After all, God doesn't ask us to be "right"; He ask that we be good. It's that simple.

    My father is a staunch atheist and my mother a Lutheran. The marriage ended in failure but I think it had to do with moderate versus conservative upbringing. I mean I think they are idiots for ever getting married in the first place with such diametrically opposed views, both religious and non. After all, they did get married in Las Vegas after all (even with my mother's ultra-conservative upbringing...) so I get the feeling that I was the reason that they married. Morons.

    As an agnostic/atheist, could I marry someone who was a christian? Five years ago I would've said absolutely not. Even 2 years ago I think my answer would have been the same. Today, well I think it would depend on the individual. If the woman came from a German family and is interested in preserving German culture, I could see myself marrying a woman like that. Though she would have to be lax on putting christian doctrine on my children. Personally I would not go into a relationship hoping to change the religious beliefs of my partner. I think it would just be better to find someone more compatible.

    I think it should be okay, regardless is friendship or relationship/marriage, with the condition that both should respect the other's faith. If they are trying to constantly convert one another, this could create conflicts in the relationship. That or one or both should be open minded enough not to be bothered about the other proselytizing.

    Yes with friends and in my experience this only applies to pagans and atheists really (most of my friends are atheists, of course). In relationships only one religion works - paganism is the religion of Europe and the only religion of Europe, no one should have to compromise and if brainwashed Christians can't stop lying to themselves and embrace the true European religion then they'd be better off marrying other Christians instead. As far as Christians and Muslims go, I really couldn't care less to be honest.

    I have had the odd Christian friend, I may have ones habouring subtle Christian views I am not really aware of or that they don't let others know about but when it comes down to anyone I know is Christian I have found without exception it has made being a close friend with them too difficult. You have a choice between hardline missionary fanatics, Zionists, and liberal globalists, none of which are good or remotely compatible with pagans, or level-headed atheists for that matter.

    With atheists I really judge each case on its merits. I guess most are agnostic/atheist, any militant atheist I would find equally intolerable and incompatible I think.

    I suppose if someone obviously European were a follower of Hinduism or Buddhism for some strange reason, my response would be "why??", but I would at least respect them for pursuing a religion steeped in ancient tradition with a far more profound and philosophical worldview. My only issue here I think would be the orientalist/Asia-fetishism they may or may not have (plenty of hardline traditionalists e.g. Evola that focused on this sphere, simply because it's more extensively documented and they found them more useful sources for learning European/Eurasian tradition)

    Friendship with christians, sure, unless they're nutty and want to shove the religious bs down my throat. It would be very unfortunate if they are christians but as long as religion is never mentioned I don't mind the friendship.

    Relationship/marriage - absolutely not. Others might make it work, I wouldn't know. For me it's a huge no-no. Doesn't matter if it's any of the desert religions (christianity, islam, judaism etc), paganism, new age bs or whatever it may be, none of it would work for me in a relationship/marriage.

    My wife and I share the same faith as we do everything else that matters.

    I can't visualize our marriage being complicated by such different views.

    So, even though I think it's possible to cross lines of faith to marry, it would be difficult for me to do so.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    One's cultural origin is the primary influence on one's behavior. Two westerners or two easterners would make better couples, regardless of religion.

    I am Germanic, and I believe in a religion foreign to our roots. But I still want a Germanic man. Liking a foreign religion doesn't mean you want to live with a foreigner, or breed with them. Perhaps one might value the way foreigners organize themselves socially and religiously because it would benefit one's own race to do so, given that freedom isn't working out too well.

    If one believes strongly in a religion and it is such an important part of their lives, then I don't see how they could be with someone who doesn't follow that religion as well.

    I would prefer someone who is a Germanic heathen or has some affinity towards Germanic mythology. I could see some disagreements with a staunch Christian, for example. I generally do not like fanaticism and fundamentalism.

    I'd also prefer someone who is a Heathen but I wouldn't mind a Christian who is Germanic preservationist either. There are many Christian nationalists from Germanic countries, for example. I could respect his beliefs if he respected mine, though raising children would be more complicated. We'd probably raise them to be acquainted with both faiths and when they're old enough they could choose. But not the most ideal setting, so I'd really have to like this guy.
