Dating someone of a different religion
One religious group stands out for its willingness to intermarry: the adherents of Jediism, which is based on the teachings of the Jedi Knights in the Star Wars movies.Develin notes: “Jedi have the highest likelihood of intermarriage—it is hard to find someone with compatible midichlorians.I think if you meet someone of a different religious view and can agree on those things there is no reason you can't work it out pretty smoothly.Yeah im dating someone christian too, and we've agreed that we can never have/adopt children. I was raised Christian and changed later, my son can do the same if he feels Christianity isn't right for him. I'm leaving the religion aspects of our son's childhood to her.Take the United Kingdom, which is 40% Protestant, 17% Catholic, 15% atheist and 11% Muslim: if religion played no role, the odds suggest that only about one in five relationships would be between people of the same religion. In even more religiously diverse countries like Singapore and Taiwan, more than 90% of people are in relationships with people they might meet at their mosque, temple, or church. In the United States, Mormons and Sikhs are the most likely to stay within their religions—making up some 90% of those groups’ relationships.Jews, despite making up a larger part of the population (and therefore having more same-religion options) are much more likely to date and marry outside their faith.
It's not my cup of tea but it is hers so I do it. I married a Christian woman and we have a daughter. Everything was fine with happy times until we had our daughter. Talk about how you would bring up children together, then you can make a pretty accurate assessment of where the marriage could go.And regardless of religion—or lack thereof—people are much more likely to date someone from another group than they are to marry that person.Facebook study author Mike Develin does note a possible selection bias that may be skewing the numbers: their study uses people’s self-identified religious statuses on Facebook, and those who broadcast their beliefs may be more devout, and therefore less likely to intermarry.This is another way many people end up finding the person they spend the rest of their lives with.While religious dating may not be the same as other types of dating, that does not mean people cannot meet others.
