yes. What's more important is that no matter what religion she may be, she isn't a brainwashed weirdo about it. I'm Catholic, I married a catholic and between us we realized we have two brains between our heads and we don't need anyone to shove their beliefs on us.
I don't care and it hasn't caused any issues. tWife takes the kids to church on Sundays, I either officiate, hunt, fish, or just take a nap. I don't discourage it, it just isn't for me right now. She is non denominational I am Lutheran. I prefer to go to a Lutheran church if I go, but since I don't, and she does, I have no issues with her taking the kids to the non denominational church.
Definitely not but the girl I've gone on some dates with recently is Jewish and her parents STRICTLY want he rto get with a Jewish guy so I'm screwed there.
This thread is especially relevant to me right now because in about an hour, a Hindu priest from up in the Himalayas is about to come my house and do a two hour puja (prayer).
I was not raised religious at all. I didn't care one bit what religion my wife was, and it's actually really cool to see how other people do things and think about the world.
And while I did have a small traditional ceremony in the US, I garauntee no Christian wedding can top a big Hindu wedding. I rode a white horse down the middle of a crowded street with my friends dancing to a live band that moved down the street with us while excessive amounts of fireworks exploded from every direction. Hands down the coolest experience of my life.
I think you need to stay open to anything.
Especially if those beliefs are anything different then your own. Yikes, sounds creepy.
Don't tread on me.
Two Catholics marry and 14 years later they have two kids. Catholicism fail. (cause we should have like 18 kids by then)
If my parents insist on a Hindu wedding I plan to toss a pound of reefer in the fire to make sure everyone has a great time.
Yes and no. I'd prefer another atheist/agnostic, but its not a deal breaker. They could practice what they'd like, as long as they're not all about it.
I wouldn't allow it to get to the point of marriage if she was very religious, she probably wouldn't allow it either.
I never said you failed. Congrats on marriage and kids. But your line of your catholic brain, and her catholic brain and rejecting all other thoughts and beliefs scares me and I wonder what you teach your kids about other people who happen not to be catholic.
Wait, what? Who are you 'quoting'?
sorry bozorules, It was "Izzo Court". Thanks for the downvote?
I'm Jewish and married a catholic, non practicing though she is. Anything short of scientology (or other cults obviously), and probably a Mormon and I wouldn't really have mattered. However my son is being raised Jewish. I honestly don't know if that not being the case would've effected a decision in the pre marriage life. Very tough decision because of how valued that is in my family and for me. I'm lucky because even though its every Jewish parents dream for their kids to marry fellow Jews they fell in love with my wife as well and welcomes her.

"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
I like your dancing bear. That's the closest thing to religion I ever found, next to maybe Spartan Stadium.
No, as long as she wasn't preachy about it and/or acted appropriately in public.
I've been told by others that Hindu weddings are amazing.
I tend to disagree with the OP and your notion that religion is and will continue to lose it's strength in our society. For those who are Christians we don't worship rituals or traditions, which can die out over time in society. We worship Jesus who we believe is alive.
Anyway, I would think marriage would be hard enough if you both didn't see eye to eye.
I see Michigan State as a destination, not a stop.~Mark Dantonio
Where have you seen him last and what do you guys talk about?
See? This is why I couldn't marry a believer, she would say something ridiculous, I'd make a hilarious joke and then she'd make me sleep on the couch.
tWife and I are both Catholic. It works for us.

No conclusions were jumped to. If someone said, "I'm in the KGB and my wife is in the KGB and we both have brains and we don't allow other beliefs to be pushed on us." people would question it.
Being Catholic myself, I remember my grandmother always said, marry a Catholic girl. You will have enough things to fight about you don't need arguments about religion.
She was right.
This. The only facet I'm a little more flexible on is politics - the others would bring too much tension all year.
OP is a narrow-minded, bigoted fool and has a lot of growing up to do. TIA.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
I don't plan on losing the current one, so I guess the next one will have to be a mormon.
I'm not saying people who are religious will stop being religious, but less and less people will become religious. You will continue to worship and that's fine, but the "notion" is really more like a fact that's already happening.
