    Question: Do you think a Christian who decides to get married and/or start a family with an Atheist is automatically negating their Christian faith/beliefs?

    No, not in any way, shape, or form. Then again, I'm the guy that thinks endogamy is ridiculous anyway..

    Sounds corny, but I believe, love trumps religion.

    There's NOTHING wrong with it. But a hardcore Christian wouldn't marry an atheist to begin with

    By no means are they negating their beliefs.

    However I believe that it is pretty dangerous to do so. Sort of like a recovering alcoholic taking a job as a bartender.

    It could work out, but there is a lot of negative factors working against you.

    The real question is how do you bring up your kids? Because if both parents are saying two different things, at a young age the kids will be confused

    I thought this thread was about people working out and one side being bigger then the other.

    I wonder about this too, I mean they are opposing religions for the most part...so what will you teach the children?


    a combination of both until the child becomes of age to decide for themselves?? I don't know how anyone would make a decision like that.

    I don't even think a "serious" Christian would even marry a Atheist

    as long as both parties are understanding of each other's beliefs and stay open minded, i don't see why it would be a problem.

    On/Off topic :

    I used to see this one bodybuilder dude walk around the UCBerkeley area and it looked like he only works out his upper body and not his lower body. He waspretty yoked from the waist up, but his legs looked like a pair of twigs. People called him triangle man.

    I don't even see how that relationship comes about with a devout Christian.

    As for the fair weather faithful, sure. Probably a lot of those relationships.

    There's so many obstacles with a devout christian. I mean how yall even get married? Atheist aint gonna wanna hear GOD mentioned. Then again they might notgive a %$!! at all and let it slide. Children are a whole other problem. Christian parent being all serious. Atheist parent telling the kids don't believethat fairy tale [​IMG] I see more problems on the side of whoever is the christian.

    As for the question, no. As strange as it sounds your own personal faith/beliefs aren't suppose to dictate who you fall in love with.
