I am Agnostic. My wife is Hindu.

Until my death bed I will most likely be Agnostic, until I know for certainty that God does not exist, and then I will be Atheist.

For those that don't know, here is the definition of Agnostic:

"An agnostic is one who believes it impossible to know anything about God or about the creation of the universe and refrains from commitment to any religious doctrine. An atheist is one who denies the existence of a deity or of divine beings."

I do not believe in my wife's beliefs but that does not stop me from attending her prayer rituals and also performing all of the rituals myself during our wedding, as that is what people do to support the ones they love. As long as they are not radicals, i.e. going around knocking on doors preaching the word, or killing people because they don't believe in that particular God then they are fine in my books and have no problem being friends/relationship with them.

Do I believe that someone up there was listening during all of this. I honestly can't say for certain, as I have never had any form of acknowledgement from any religion that I have actively spent time with, and so I do not live my life like there is.

so as you probably know , since you are friends with a Mormon, how important it is to us to marry in the temple

ofc I would not force it down your throat. just , in the long term that IS what I am looking for


My parents were Mormon and got married in the local temple. I was very small but I do remember the sealing room and the white garments everybody wore.

I'm Christian, but I'm not really obsessed with it, like some people are. Frankly, obsessive Christians get on my nerves. To answer your question, I would date any religion, as long as they're not obsessive.

I'm agnostic myself, but I was born and raised a Christian.

I can be friends with people of any religious easily enough.

Marriage or serious relationships is another story. I could be married to a Christian or a Jewish person, as long as they were not obsessed with it. For marriage considerations, I would really like to get along and connect with their family, so if a close family member was extremely religious it would definitely be a negative thing. A Muslim however, I could not marry. I can respect them as people but I've done my research and I disagree with the religion on many levels.

for friends, would you still be friends even if the person is kind and you wouldn't have known unless they told you


Yes I've been friends with religious people

would you date a person who wants to marry in their religion and it is important to them, the one thing they will not give up in a relationship, but they will sacrifice anything else


Well this question is moot since the religious person wants to marry someone in their religion so most likely they'll date those who they know are their religion or wish to convert.

There are those that are happy to leave room for others that aren't in their particular religion or faith denomination. My ex is one of those (ex Catholic turned Muslim). He wanted someone of either Muslim, Christian or Jewish background.

I can be friends with anyone. As a Calvinist Christian, I have Muslim and atheist friends. We have a lot of lively debates between each other. I could never date an atheist or Muslim though. We are talking about fundamentally different worldviews.

Friends? Yes, but it would depend much on the person.

As for romantic relationship, I dont' think so. If religion is a big part of somebody's life, I seriously doubt that we have many things in common to be partners.
