    Well, it depends on your definition of marriage. For me it is a sacrament, not merely a way to save taxes. That implies that you marry your soul mate, not your fuck buddy. And a soul mate simply cannot have a different belief system than me. If that person is still seeking it should not even think about marriage before the quest has ended.

    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    I agree completely that someone should marry his soulmate, although it is a moot point for me, since I will neither marry nor date. I see your point, however. You don't want to marry someone just to discover they have turned to a belief completely incompatible with your own. That makes sense.

    I don't think so. Imagine if children are involved. If an Atheist and a Christian marry the Christian will want to baptize the children, and raise them as Christians. There will always be arguments about faith, so I think like with politics, the partners' religions should be compatible.

    Absolutely not. I agree with Todesengel. My husband is an Atheist like me and I couldn't be married or dating with a Christian, Muslim or Jew. But I could be friends with them.

    So I vote:

    Friendship - Yes.
    Dating - No.
    Marriage - No.

    But why are dating and marriage separate? I don't see why it would be ok dating but not in marriage for example. Isn't dating done with the purpose of finding a life partner, or I'm mistaken here? I think the same rules for marriage should also be valid for dating.

    I'm a Lutheran Christian. And I am not a biblical person. I attend church like twice a year () and I don't quote passages in the bible. What I consider important about Christianity are the values it teaches. And I've always been opened to the concept about those morals having been of heathen origin.


    I'm speaking from a dating and marriage point of view. I won't go out with someone if they're Islamic, Jewish and/or Hardcore Atheistic. But I'll go out with a woman if she's Agnostic/Atheistic (that is she doesn't center her life around attacking Christianity) and/or any branch of Christianity.


    As for politics... I don't even know if I subscribe to political ideology. Racial views are not a political ideology. But I find capitalism to be an even more evil ideology than communism. But I disdain the Marxian attitudes against spirituality and tribalism. I suppose I'm more like a socialist like Léon Degrelle and Oswald Mosley.

    I think inter-religious friendship is fine. In fact, it's necessary for me, being that Heathens are mostly few and far between. Though I must say I'd be wary of becoming friends with someone who is staunchly Muslim, Jewish, or Christian.

    Dating/marriage is a lot different. Like Bärin, I don't really differentiate between the two, because I date to find a longtime partner. Mental compatibility is extremely important for me when it comes to relationships, and religion falls into that category. I really couldn't see myself being with a person who was not a Heathen himself, but perhaps I'd make an exception for someone who was, say, a CR pagan. It'd have to be something similar.

    It depends on the specific religion involved. Relationships between Agnostics/Atheists and Christians or Heathens are not as problematic as relationships between Christians and Muslims.

    I´m a heathen but I´d have no problem to be friends with Christians or Atheists. In fact, most of my friends are Christians or Atheists.

    On the other hand, I´d never make friends with muslims. I despise them.

    Is it OK to have Inter-religious relationships ?

    I'd answer that with a definite and emphatic "Maybe". It CAN be a source of great friction and stress. If both parties and their prospective in-laws discuss the matter in depth beforehand and come to agreements about their expectations, there is no reason why it should not work, but this rarely done.
