Should Religion Be A Deal Breaker For Me ?
I’ve been seeing someone and we don’t have the same religion. I really like him, but I also always wanted someone to share the same views as me. What should I do ? Leave him or push on and find a way to get over it ?
Thanks for submitting this question to us.
Honestly, it all comes down to if you both can make it work. You never mentioned if he has any issues with your religion & religious beliefs ? Does he care or find it important as well ? Is he asking you to convert to his religion ?
I’ve seen many relationships work where both partners have different beliefs. But it comes down to compromise too. Maybe you want him attending your religious events. Is he okay with that ? Are you also okay with taking part in his ?
At the end of the day if you feel it won’t work out long term. Then maybe it’s best to move on. Have a good talk with him and let him know how you feel.
Personally, I’ve come to the conclusion that the chemistry you feel with someone is based on the similarities you have with each other. That includes having similar views, interests, sense of humor, etc.
Also, because many involve cultural expectations that people may find to be quite incompatible with what they want in my life. Such as having to go to church every Sunday, would both of you want to do that ? It’s a big question if it’s important to one of you.
Otherwise, it would become very difficult to be able to relate to them and get along. So what ever path you take, the best course of action is to talk about it and come to a mutual agreement together.
Wish you the best with everything!
