It's is totally your opinion of being an atheist or not. Try telling to your boyfriend first and check for the reaction. Later try to put it in a proper sentence to his parents. Good luck! Take care

You could say it to them and tell them that you respect them. And their religous choices. And that you hope that they can respect yours.

That is totally and completely up to you! It is none of their concern for what you believe in. If they ask you if you do. Tell them. There's nothing wrong with believing what you believe. If you are worried your religious choices, Then talk to your boyfriend about it and see what he says. It's a good thing telling your partner things like this! Some people want to know things like this. x Skyler

No. There is no necessity to tell anybody anything. It is not necessary. Religion is a personal thing.

Yes, if you want to be with this guy, you have to be honest. I think it is for the best if they know the truth. Especially if it is a serious relationship. Love, Getrude
