i am a free thinker and my boyfriend is a muslim.

he want me to convert .

but i think love is 100% unconditional.

so if i dun expect him to leave his religion, why he expect me to be part of his religion .

She can follow whatever religion she likes as long as she don't try to force it upon me, I might be an atheist but I don't mock religion in front of others, respect for each others beliefs is all that is needed as far as I'm concerned. Alas tis all hypothetical seeing as I'm single

It's not really important to me if he is Christian or not, just that he doesn't drag me to church more than I am already

As long as they don't have a problem with my religious views, I really don't care.

If they want me to join their religion, they would probably be disappointed.

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


Haha, no, my wife is an expert cook. The recipe has been in my side of the family for 20 years. I didn't get this big eating sushi :)


Here's a similar recipe, it's really yummy.

I have no problem with religion as long as the religion minds it's own business. So I'm cool dating someone of any religion, but they can't expect me to follow theirs or change to comply with the religion.

I'm my own person, my future partner(s) is their own person, we don't need to put guidelines on each other.

You are wise, I have a some friends who've been married for 20+ years. Ones Muslim, the other is Catholic. It's pretty sweet. It's a good Yin and yang. As long as your sum is less than your whole, you will be supreme! I mean together you are far better off than as individuals. Keep on working at it, the payoff can be great.

Technically the Bible says "do not be unequally yoked" which I've heard has the meaning if someone does not have the same beliefs and values as you then the relationship will be rocky (because you won't have the same goals for life etc which makes working as a team difficult when you are not aiming for the same thing). So I'd rather not go on a date with someone if I know they do not have the same beliefs. However if I ended up marrying a non-Christian then "love others as you love yourself" still applies.

Depends, if he's preachy and always talks about god then no.

I'm not vocal about how I don't believe in god and how people should stop believing in god and believe in nothing, so I'd like a boyfriend who doesn't talk about their beliefs in god and how people should believe in god.

I think if a couple have different religious beliefs that they cling to with all their heart, the relationship probably won't work out. And if it does, one or both of them will be incredibly unhappy.

Well it's in the bible, so that's my belief as well.
The bible holds the truth, I will obey the given command then.

Nope, just attended my buddies 51st Bday. Him and his wife are very tight (26 years Muslim/Catholic both devout). I haven't actually seen a mixed marriage (amongst my friends) fail yet. It's pretty sweet. I'm a firm believer that it's the differences that make you strong. All my friends who married someone with a lot in common are all divorced. Why? Because individuals grow and change, you fell in love with someone who has the same values. When you are in love with someones differences, as you age those changes in interest and beliefs fire you up to see why the love of your life finds other things interesting. I love the fact that my wife paints a lot now, she loves my sword fighting. I love the way she changes and gets stronger. Since she is still with me after 25 years...I am sooo lucky.... Embrace the differences, it's how we grow as humans.

i am Christian

and yes, someone i date must also be a Christian. "do not be unequally yoked" is a pretty clear line in the Bible.
