Many people have been raised within certain religions or with specific values and morals before they enter the world of dating, love, sex and marriage. Compatibility is a major component in getting involved in a serious relationship, and these views play a big part in taking a relationship to the next level, whether it's moving in together, deciding to have a child or getting married. So what are two lovers supposed to do when they don't have the same religious beliefs? Above all, it's important to remember that you love each other and consistently should show each other that love and respect for one another. Examine how you each feel about your own personal religion - how strongly do you hold your beliefs? What are the dealbreakers that potentially could end your relationship? Important questions to ask your partner about his or her beliefs include his or her belief in God and how big of a role God/spirituality plays in his or her daily life.
