No. Religion isn't something to be taken lightly. I'm agnostic, but the entire point of religion is that you're committing your eternal existence to one thought, one ideal. For a span of time that we can't comprehend, you're picking your path.
If you don't really believe in it, you're just faking it for a piece of gash. Don't fake the rest of your fucking life.
If you believe in something, do it because it inspires you, and builds a strength in you that you can't find otherwise. Not to satisfy someone's family.
It should, that's the entire point of it, is it not? Why "believe" in something if you don't think it influences the existence of your soul and all of your being? Otherwise it's an arbitrary set of goals just like not being religious.
Again, I'm not religious, I don't think anything is out there, but it is purely disingenuous to act like it does to get laid or gather the approval of whoever you're fucking.
it depends. as a general rule, no, why bother? people are temporary, and relationships even more so.
that being said, how strict is she? is she gonna expect you to follow all these weird rules? and if you LOVE her, hwo did you get this far without it being an issue?
me personally if they are a casual observer and just want me to go to church with them once in a while, discuss a little scripture, why not? most religions are extremely fucking interesting when you get past the very basic surface stuff were all aware of. church is basically one big 'hang in there' poster but you get to sing and usually theres free donuts after, and the people pretend to be so wholesome it feels nice.
but if she wants you to commit to believin, nah why bother?
>>16763019 Absolutely not. Took 7 years of deep introspection to find out what I believe and get comfortable with it. I'm open to talking about things or visiting her place of worship but the odds are practically nil that I would change. I've been what I am almost half my life now.
Luckily my wife shares my views mostly and our daughter is being raised to make up her own mind when she's old enough.
Respect others. That means allow them to believe whatever they want or not at all and they should do the same for you. If you can't do that, it's going to fail.
>>16763211 OP here, in order for me to marry this girl, I'd have to be Muslim. That's the pickle I'm in, although marriage is still a bit far into the future. And i doubt my parents would even condone to me changing religions for a girl. Also, a side note, I'm not religious.
