It doesn't matter. I'll respect their beliefs no matter what.

While I respect the beliefs of others, I've always found it easier to date someone who was like minded.

That being said, I'm agnostic, and so is my husband. We come from completely different backgrounds, and often have differing opinions on many subjects, but this is not one of them.

It's not a good idea to mix religions, sooner or later there will be a conflict that could end the relationship. It doesn't matter if you respect the others belief or not. Especially in Christianity marriage is described as two becoming one physically, emotionally, legally, and spiritually, if your views differ too much like different religious beliefs then your probably not going to have a strong union.

I'm not christian. But it probably depends on the person and the type of relationship the 2 of them have

I personally am not really invested, concerned, or really interested in those things and would prefer that my partner has a similar mindset. If my partner doesn't have a similar mindset, it's a probably not.

Be sure that he/she is sure that faith issues wont be a problem. Religious people (sorry for generalizing) tends to avoid irreligious people because it complicates their faith most likely unless they have understood themself that it doesnt matter. So be 100% sure or else it can be bad. But the most important thing is to love each other, find one you like and have a good life

Or you can try to convert them over to Cobanism. Thats also nice ^^

Wrong, the people I know with the longest most successful marriages (in my age group) are mixed race and religion. It's funny, because you'd think not. My Hindu buddy and his Atheist wife15 years? My Muslim bro and his Catholic wife 25 years. I'm Southern baptist and my wife is Japanese Lutheran. Look, love crushes all stupid shit if it's true love. If your faith, food, politics, music, sports, money, parents, or anything else like these things get in the way of your love, then it wasn't love. Remember love takes the following, gentleness, kindness, empathy, courage, trust, faithfulness, understanding, an open mind, strength and most of all friendship. It's sought by almost all but very seldom found...

I'm gonna go downstairs and smooch on my wife because I like her for who she is, no matter what she is.

Steelmonk both you and your wife are Christian right? who cares what denomination, you have the same core belief, right? In my opinion Christian is Christian, although there are some extreme exceptions. But thank you I'll think about that.

This. Your core beliefs shape your expectations. If you come into a relationship from, say, a utilitarian perspective (i.e., whatever is most beneficial to each of us is the best choice), and she is coming into it from, say, a moralistic perspective (i.e., whatever aligns with the will of God according to the Bible is the best choice), you're gonna have a bad time.
You might be able to resolve your issues, and get past it. You might not. But two people with similar core beliefs, worldviews, values, etc. will certainly be more likely to form the kind of bond necessary for a strong relationship.

That's another good thing about Japanese cooking--They don't understand Halloween, so pumpkin recipes can turn up any time of the year.
