Does Religious Differences Matter In Marriage? by Onyi22(f): 12:44pm On Mar 12, 2021
From my inbox

I met this guy in my final year in school, we almost shared the same view in life, he possesed all the qualities I need in a man.

He's so caring, kind, handsome, a good pay Job n from a humble home, I can't deny the fact that I Love him.

But the issue is that he's a Muslim while am a christian lady.

Pls house does religion matters in marriage

Why would you be asking this, Yes it's important. It doesn't matter how nice he is, as long as he is an unbeliever, he is disqualified. The bible say don't be unequally yoked ( marriage ) with unbelievers

For this matter, two things are involved.
It is either none of you are devoted to your stated religion or at least one of you is. If none of you are devoted to being a muslim or christian then you automatically belong to a different religion called secularism, so your question is no longer a problem.
If at least one of you is devoted two things are involved. It is either he is, and nothing else because if you are, you will not be asking this question. If he is, then sister you are entering one chance.

PS: You are not marrying only the guy but his family. Be prepared to convert, because if he does, his family will mostly likely disown him. My 2 cents.

Life is govern by Believe and Faith which ultimately effects and affects ones thinking which is what we call mindset.

Religious tolerance must always be accommodated in any society and this is my stand.

As regards marriage the Christian faith has certain standards in choosing suitors or spinsters so also does Islam.

If memory serves me right both religion disagree as regards this matter owing to what they stand for in choosing a life partner and what follows afterwards.

To answer your question - yes religious background matters in choosing a life partner.

It does, some religion doesn't permit relationship with external denomination or not the same religious type. There is a religion (name withheld) that could even issue death threats or parents disowning their child if they dare.

In matters like this, you don't need to seek public opinion but Godly counsel
The Bible clearly states that you as a Christian should not be of equal yoke to an unbeliever
You have contrary beliefs+incompatible in religions)

It matters....You have to seriously talk about it in your courtship... All these qualities you are seeing now, might not be there in 11yrs time... at least you will feel reassured if his word is his bond in the long run.... Just saying because..

<<<< His religion permits polygamy... When he gets tired and the love wear thin as most marriages are, will he marry a second wife?...Some picks second wife because the wife got only female kids...

<<<<When you have kids with him, which religion will they belong? will u insist he takes them to mosque? will he feel offended if you take them to church?.. all these little tiny details are really important so that you won't say tomorrow that he deceived you when you did not even try at all asking him... because u were carried away by how handsome he looked and forget yourself totally smiley

When some Nigerian ladies get to some certain age bracket, they become intolerably irrational, could accept almost anything thrown at them if only it would change their singlehood status. I don't blame them, no, I blame them and the society.

If you think that all hope is lost and you can't meet a person of your dream, ignore the religious difference, and head straight to the union, with your eyes wide open. After all, not taking a risy in itself constitutes a risk.

It's not your fucking business if anyone's an unbeliever. And who told you that that Muslim guy is an unbeliever?. Because he's not a Christian?. You're a waste!

An average Muslim sees an average Christian as unbeliever and vice versa

Nah. Only extremists do that. I don't give a bleep about anybody's religion. Religious people are tend to be too hypocrite, selfish and all even more than the main unbelievers.

Religious compatibility is very important in a marriage. And it would pose a greater problem when children start coming in and maybe some forms of family norms.

Do Muslim believe that Jesus Christ is lord, if not then they are unbelievers, that's what I mean.
