This has probably been asked before, but I'll drag it up again. Is or has anyone been in a relationship with a very religious person? How has that worked? Would you do it again?
There is no way that I could have a serious relationship with any very religious person. For starters, I could not tolerate their emotional and intellectual turpitude. Yes, two of my five soulmates are believers, but one the three others (my wife) has no time for such skulduggery.
I have and I was the religious one. I didn't try to convert her but I did eventually have an episode where I tried to break it up because of the missing spiritual connection. The truth was I was the one blocking it because of my thought that it had to be some kind of Jesus led connection. I just feel like if you really believe it, it can't work to be in a relationship with a non believer. If you just go to services to put a tally on the wall then it could work but just think about raising kids and what you're gonna tell them.
Was never in a dating relationship with a religious woman, had a friend tho. Keyword: had. Did not work well. I’m a very sarcastic man who loves jokes and memes, and she was very, very, VERY religious. Needless to say we are no longer friends.
Just recently got out of one - and I'll never attempt another !
He went from unrealistically wanting to marry after three months (thinking that if we married, I'd probably become a believer ... really!!??), to suddenly deciding he wanted someone he could read scripture with, and breaking things off in one afternoon . WTF.
I left a marriage of 17 years as my ex found religion and became a huge jerk. I was respectful to his beliefs but he was not towards mine or my sons. The name calling began.. I was the devil, etc. I had to leave and will never be made to feel less than again.
My recent ex-girlfriend is Mormon. I was and probably still am crazy about her. She seemed to be the perfect woman for me. We both understood that we weren't trying to convert or un-baptize the other, but we would have conversations that touched on religion. She was not raised in the LDS, but converted later in life when she was looking for what was true for her - their family centered culture attracted her. I obviously don't agree that the LDS is right, but the Mormons that I have met are the most caring and sincere of any Christians I have ever dealt with. The relationship ended a few months back, but religion was not the cause. I would definitely date her again. But I would definitely have serious qualms about a super-religious partner. Recently, I've been talking with a Jewish girl that seems really nice. So we'll see where that takes me.
