Very sensitive topic, I personally can't marry someone of different religion, because the kind of home I wanna build,I don't want that kind of differences, I want a synergy in all things including the choice of religion. But let everyone knows what works for them and act accordingly.

I'm a Christian, if my wife was religious person i wouldn't have married her.
I will prefer to marry an irreligious Muslim than to marry a religious Christian.
Imagin, when it is time to make love one person will be speaking in tongues what kinda thing is that? grin

' far as islam is concerned, it is better to marry a muslim slave than a non- muslim freeborn.

does prayer make someone good?

We make short prayers together most times,very important,but not those elaborate and long prayers, then we focus on trying to do what is right.

Macdove02:
Love is all that matters
The love in our world, especially today, is no where near or comparable with the Love of God expressed in Christ.
A genuine Christian knows he/she is bound by the covenant of Christ's Love and should be lead by the Spirit in choosing a life partner NOT by human love that exists only in the realm of the soul. Such Christian, whose real/first love is Christ, can never be joined with someone whose heart isn't owned by Christ.
A real Christian who is first and foremost concerned about a growing relationship with Christ above anything else can't think of being joined together in matrimony to non-believer - that would be disastrous to his/her spiritual life and that will definitely lead to a physical life of agony and lots of "patching-up".

You should put religion aside when you love your spouse. I am neither a Christian nor a Muslim but I can go along well with either of them.

What is Religion

According to wiki

Religion is a social-cultural system of designated behaviors and practices, morals, worldviews, texts, sanctified places, prophecies, ethics, or organizations, that relates humanity to supernatural, transcendental, or spiritual elements.


What is love


Love is also considered to be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as "the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another".




If your religion does not teach love, then no one can help you with this question.


The definition of love is entrenched in your religion. They are view based. How do you separate culture, which is your way of life, how you relate with others, and your views about them.


You can't truly love if it is not your culture, your religion.


Separating love and religion shows you have neither

In Nigeria it should matter unless you find a partner quite intelligent as you and not overtly religious, these type of girls are rare and most are very introverted, nerdy and always indoors. The only place you can easily find them is on Twitter also putting out sarcastic quotes.

One thing I noticed is if you as a guy is Atheist but comfortable with enough money in your name, live in a decent house and own a nice ride. The most religious girl will ignore you being Atheist and still love you. So it's safe to say cash rule the world -- at least it do with girls
At least it do with churches, seek the truth and true it hurts.

When you are looking for the biggest scams in human history, we have just two:
1. Love
2. Religion

But in all its splendor, i have much love for Jesus Christ, the Author and finisher of my life. wink

If you know your divine mission on earth then you have to choose a spouse that his/her life aligns with that mission.
