I have been through a lot in life too, which helps me to be able to empathize with situations, thoughts and feelings that we have. Sometimes, it's not easy just being human.

It really depends. Perhaps in the early stages it might work out okay. It might be a different story later on, though, if you decide to settle down together, and especially if you decide to have kids. A couple living together with different religions may face problems that they didn't have when they were just going out, for example diet restrictions, prayer times, even having an altar at home for Buddhists and such. And if they decide to have children, they need to discuss which religious standards and beliefs the kid will be brought up on.
Yes it can if you to respect each other and love each and don't try to make the other one feel guilty about their beliefs
Yes. Love doesnt define by religion. I have a boyfriend and we are not in the same religion. We work it out and be the best among ourselves. Religion doesnt stop us from loving each other. We see that as an opportunity to prove those who are struggling about that.
It is actually a matter of perception. Depending on the person's religion, can be a big deciding factor. You have two ask yourself what matters most to you.
Hmm... in my opinion, every religion teaches their followers to do good. I understand that there can be differences in each religion but at the end of the day, they all teach good values and morals. So yes, it will work out if you both can agree that both religions are good and that you can learn more from each other :)
Of course it can! In a relationship, two people who are committed to each other will make things work out. However, if you strongly disagree with what your partner believes in and you guilt them into thinking that their faith is wrong, that won't be a healthy relationship and it's wrong to do that sort of thing.
Yes, so long as both partners are honest to who they are and committed to loving each other through their differences. Recognizing and respecting individuality is one of the most exciting and integral parts of maintaining a relationship.
Hi In my opinion it just depends, as some people have their firmly held beliefs on religion due to perhaps their parents influence etc . Where I live there is Catholic and protestant .There is a lot that has happened in the past but thankfully it is a lot better now. Some people dont want to move on and "live and let live" they still go back to the past and think of 'the other side' , Other people are more willing and think ok we have to live in this country so lets get on with it. But if two people really love each other they wont let religion get In their way no matter what . Hope this helps
I think it depends on the strength of your religious convictions. If religion is not a dominant aspect of your life, then being romantically involved with someone of a different faith ought to not bother you all that much (unless the person in question's faith radically contrasts to yours). Additionally, you ought to consider to what degree the two religions in question differ. If there is only a slight difference between the two religion's beliefs, then you will likely have an easier time being in a relationship.
Of course, it can. When you fall in love with someone, you open your heart and accept them. And of course, it will be hard at first, get to know them, ask them about their beliefs, do not oppose, and also tell them about yours, so you guys will understand each other better.
Yes! If you are both accepting of each others' religions, which comes down to mutual respect, it cannot come between you. As long as you respect each other and your beliefs it is perfectly reasonable to have a healthy relationship.
Yes! You just have to be respectful and kind and you may not agree with somethings ECT love conquers
Yes, but you have to communicate and support both religions even if you aren’t a part of it. Go to their service, pray with them every once and a while, and make sure they know that you care and love them for who they are and support their choices of not switching to yours or vise versa. A relationship is built on communication and you need that for every aspect. If they dont do sometting with you religion wise, dont get mad and continue on your path. Be there. Be human. Idk im just rambling now but yeah, hope i help.
