Maintaining a successful marriage is not easy. It requires a lot of hard work. It becomes even harder if the two of you have different religious views. So, how do you handle the relationship when you cannot agree on that crucial aspect, religion?
Here are some tips that you might use:
Accept your differences and talk about it
The main problem that interfaith couples face is trying to ignore their differences. If at all you are to maintain a healthy relationship, it is important that the both of you talk about it. This will ensure that neither of you has wrong assumptions about each other which would slim out any chances of your marriage surviving.
Respect each other’s beliefs
It is important to understand that religion is a personal matter and it just remains as an opinion. For interfaith couples to coexists, it requires that both learn to respect their differences, knowing that no religion is better than the other.
Never try to convert them
Trying to push your opinions and beliefs on your spouse is the surest way of creating bad blood between the two of you. Someone’s religion is of importance to them. However, it is wrong to try to convert your spouse to share in your beliefs. If they want to convert, let it be from their own free will and do not coerce them. If you can never accept your spouse’s belief, then you might consider not marrying them in the first place.
