I believe in a higher power, he does not. It makes for much conversation.

I think he's an atheist like me, but I'm not positive. Obviously, it never comes up, or I'd know for sure.

We don't have the same beliefs, but it doesn't cause problems. We have had many an interesting conversation on these kinds of topics though!

I'm an atheist and he's Methodist. But I'm way more interested in religion than he is.

We're both "Bible Believing" Conservative Christians and it adds a great deal to our relationship. We love to talk about God - about what He's doing in our lives - about what He's teaching us, etc. I love it when I catch my husband reading the Bible and He talks about what God is showing him and laying on his heart. Today was so cool because we got to talking about it even and it really gives me a deeper insight into my husband and who he is and why he acts the way he does.

non mainstream religons are more tolerant we do not have the same religion but have enough in common. As it harms none do as you will. there is a higher power even if it just turns out to be science.

I'm an Atheist and he's Agnostic, but it wouldn't bother me if he was religious, as long as he respects me as I am.

We have a few similar beliefs and both practice forms of magick but aside from that it's quite different and hasn't been an issue at all.

The only time I've ever had a mismatch of religious beliefs affect a relationship was the guy I dated from a Catholic family; his mom thought I was a heathen and therefore shouldn't be dated. However, it still wasn't the reason the relationship didn't work, so meh. Our religious differences never pop up with the current guy.

It doesn't interfere. We do talk about our beliefs sometimes though.

Both atheists, so we don't have to worry about offending each others and what not. I'm still in the closet with my family and he respects it.

My SO is an atheist and I'm Christian but it doesn't really interfere with our relationship, our religious beliefs are our own and as long as we don't put each other's beliefs down I don't think it matters

He's Atheist, I'm Agnostic. We are both tolerable of all religions but prefer to not be forced to partake

We are both Atheists, but I don't think it would matter much either way - I come from a very catholic family (and I am baptized) went to catholic school, etc, etc. He's also very tolerant of others who are religious, so I feel we'd be okay even if we had differing views on it all.

We both think the same of religion. We have a lack of faith and it will forever remain this way.

While I don't think it's a requirement to a successful union, I do think sharing beliefs can only strengthen your bond.

We used to share the same beliefs, I even switched faiths to marry him. The church has let me down too many times... He still believes, I do not. We live with it and while he misses me by his side Sunday's, understands my reasons.
