    Interfaith Relationships and Marriage

Group Details

    There are now 33 million Americans in interfaith unions. Are you one of them? Do you believe your soulmate must be the same religion or be raised with the same spiritual beliefs? What are the challenges of loving someone of a different faith? It's estimated that 25% of all couples now marry someone from a different faith background. The philosophy of this group is that love between two people adds a dimension of holiness to our world that cannot be categorized by religion or culture. Let this be a space for honest dialog, for support and help.

    I was born into an Eastern Orthodox family (not very religious) but my soul mate/best friend/future husband is Hindu. It becomes official in December :)

    I am a reformed Jew. (Not orthodox) And had discussed my beliefs and life choices with my husband before marriage. He seemed to agree with me. But has since told me that he barely believes there is a God at all. He is now angry because his parents don't agree with my faith or how I raise my children with it and we may be divorcing. He was abusive, and there was so much unhappiness in our marriage, so maybe it is a blessing.

    Hello all!!! I live in Houston, Texas and Roman Catholic by birth. My name is Juan and Hispanic. In my college years, I took this course, Cultural Anthropology, which got me interested in learning other races, religions, and the beliefs of others. I currently attend my Catholic Church, but also attend a Russian Orthodox Church that's approximately 1/2 mile away. I have learned to appreciate the mass and at the same time appreciate a couple of members. The priest enjoys my service to the church by helping to clean the church or during service by placing the icons in place. I have grown fond of these young women and by the looks on there face, they have grown fond of me. My question is: "Would one of them really give me a chance or would they just think of me as not one of them"??? I hope my question is clear.. Thank you!!!!!!!!!

    I can totally relate to this. I have recently ended a four year relationship with a wonderful man partly due to the fact that his family did not approve of him dating me (a Christian) because I was not Catholic. They made it clear in so many ways that I was unwelcome and I felt so degraded in their presence, especially by his Sister who is a nun. I hope that you can overcome this challange in your relationship. I think God has much more compassion than our earthly family does.
