Or Allah? Or Buddah? Or Zues? Or whomever you personally serve as the higher power in your life?
I mean, does Religion really matter that much?
Interfaith unions happen globally every single day, and somehow thousands of people are making it work for them. But could you?
When I first moved to New York I met this incredibly handsome guy that was a true sweetheart. He was dope to be around & aside from being a slightly reserved version of a man whore (lol) he was a very cool person. He was a practicing Muslim and initially that didn’t really affect me.
I always knew in the back of my mind though that him and I could never truly evolve into any type of permanent presence in each others lives. He was Muslim and I am a Christian.
I was never going to convert and his mother just didn’t seem like the type to give her blessing to any woman he chose who didn’t convert to the Muslim faith.
So we probably wouldn’t have worked anyway. .. well in addition to the fact that he had multiple hoes in different boroughs. But I digress. lol
When I took Religion (and cheating) out of the equation, he was someone I could have seen myself with long term. So the question is… would you ignore a person’s choice of religion if everything else about them worked for you?
For me, I’m still the type to picture my name with your last name & all that jazz so I tend to think futuristically. (I know, I’m childish! lol) I would be at a fork in the road because I would be thinking. .. what church would we attend when we got married? What religion would we raise our kids under? Does his religion include some ceremony or style of dress that I’d probably hate & be d*mned if I complied to?
Ya know, futuristic stuff like that.
But that’s just me. If you’re a Christian could you honestly date an Atheist and truly give your relationship a fair shot at forever?
I want to see who’s actually willing to compromise in this area.
Because I could see me breaking up with someone if we had fundamental differences in the way we viewed God. . Religion and the After Life.
I pretty much want my man and I to be able to go to church and pray together. That might be problematic if he likes to pray to “the god of sunflowers” or sum’n.
Yeah see, that would never work.
I’m not praying to no sunflower god. I don’t care how fine you are. 😂
