However, my boyfriend is currently finding his faith which I have been nothing but supportive about – but he feels it is imperative to be on the exact same page spiritually and have the same religious beliefs.

I personally believe our core values are the same and we both are great people – I don’t believe going to church every Sunday makes one individual any better than the next.

So Solomon did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and did not completely follow the Lord, as his father David had done.

These prohibitions are usually based on two dangers: To deal with the second danger, religions that do allow their members to marry people of other faiths often require that the children be brought up in their own members’ faith.

Dealing with the first danger is even more complicated.

I’m willing to go to church but he needs to be understanding that I may not have the same outlook on it.

I come from a Muslim background but wasn’t raised so.
