Is this a real practicality about Inter-Faith marriage?
My Spouse's Faith Will Have No Effect on the Family's Unity :A few things to keep in mind about tying an interfaith knot. KOLA OLAOSEBIKAN
"My parents attempted to adopt the live and let live philosophy. They would each follow their respective faiths. They would also give us, the children, the freedom to choose our own beliefs.
This sounded awesome in theory. The practical application, though? Not so much.
Our family ended up going through a phase where we would go to mosque on Friday and then church on Sunday.
This had some unintended side effects.
The more often my parents went to church and mosque, the more serious they became about their individual faiths.
The more serious my mom became about Christianity, the more she wanted to do the things the Bible said. And the more serious my dad became about Islam, the more he wanted to do the things the Quran said.
Sure, Islam and Christianity are similar in some respects, but they are drastically different in other core beliefs, so this was a problem.
The definition of marriage is to live life together with somebody else—in unity. It becomes tricky to live in unity when the individuals in the marriage are getting their ideas about how to live life from different sources.
When the Quran says to do one thing and the Bible says to do another, what’s a married couple to do?
This situation typically means having to choose between happiness in their marriage and fulfillment in their faith. It’s never pretty."
