How important is it to discuss the subject of religion BEFORE you are married? In what ways might religious matters become issues over the course of a marriage?
There are many topics couples looking at a commitment to one another need to discuss. Among them would be: possible children, finances, each other’s personality, relationships with families of origin…and many more. In my book, A Home United: Strategies for Couples with Different Beliefs, I argue that couples need to put religious issues on the table for discussion. What do you think?
The viewpoint I espouse is a basic one: I would answer my own question by saying that it is potentially dangerous for the relationship if these issues go unaddressed.
How about having a discussion about this right here in this space?
