Dating someone non religious
However, typically they are concerned (even if they say the don’t, they probably do subconsciously). @ray “There is the idea of like-minds relationships versus opposites attract relationships.Opposites open each other up to new things and even compliment each others ways, whereas the like-minded enjoy all the same things.” I always thought opposites attract was a myth and like-minds are always attracted to one another.She turned out to be a mormon though :( As of today, this topic has become crucial to me.My fiance is discovering that his religious beliefs and spiritual guidance are more paramount in his life than he originally felt when we began dating 1 1/2 years ago.If you enjoy the person and are happy then just stick with it.Now if they are constantly bombarding you with their religious views or don’t agree with you than perhaps it will just be more of an annoyance and possibly just let them know you aren’t sure of your beliefs yet and you’d rather enjoy them rather than debate over religion.
When we started dating, we made an agreement not judge or pressure the other person into believing or not believing. Instead, we really listened and tried to understand where the other person was coming from.
He wants to continue growing and discovering his religion with his partner, and I understand that.
I’ve gone to church a few times, and I like that I can take parts of the sermons and relate them to my life. I feel cynical and sometimes hypocritical for even being there.

I can just say it is possible but, like any relationship, any impasse can arise especially the firmer a persons mindset is. If both people in the relationship aren’t concerned about the other’s religion, then it should work.
