I grew up Lutheran (Missouri synod) and wasn’t exactly a every Sunday attendee but usually would go once a month. In college I thought about converting to Judaism since with research and some spiritual thinking I found and still find myself drawn to the faith. I probably would work on converting if there is a synagogue close by. My SO was raised Methodist but doesn’t really Carr about organize religion. We haven’t really talked about what religion we raise our kids when we have them but it something that I would want our kids to know. The one thing about religion that is very important to me is that where ever we attend it is not a place that is over zealous and doesnt try to shove religion down our throats.

I’m Methodist and my honey is Baptist. We go to a nondenominational but traditional church (if that makes sense). We are having our wedding at a Baptist chapel in my hometown. We have chosen not to let our few differences bother us. We mostly just tease each other about them. And they are more like preferences and comforts than differences. I prefer more traditional services and he likes contemporary. That’s our biggest difference.

I was raised Catholic. He was raised Methodist. We have both came back to the church as non-denominational. I am glad we are the same. It would be strange to me going to different services on Sunday. But I’m glad it works for you. As long as you both are loving God denomination doesn’t make that big of a difference 🙂

I was raised Baptist but have been attending Methodist churches for several years. He wasn’t really raised anything but attended the Baptist church regularly in high school. He wasn’t really going anywhere when we met. He went with me to my church a time or two but didn’t care for how big it was. So when we really started to get serious, we found a new Methodist church that we both love and happily attend there now.

Fiance is Roman catholic, I was raised Catholic/Methodist but was never confirmed. . We now attend and will be married in an Episcopal(Anglican) church. It’s a perfect compromise. We will probably alternate between churches for “the big ones” (Christmas, easter, etc…)

I was raised in the United Church, and FH was baptised Catholic but never really attended church. We attend my church now (not regularly, but when we do go, that’s where we go) and though we are not having a “church wedding,” we are being married by the minister from our church. Our children will also be baptised/raised in the United Church.

Me and my husband are both Christians and are the same faith. It makes marriage easier, and enjoyable. Being a Christian for us is a way of life and so seeing eye to eye on such an important matter was a must for us. For me applying the scriptual command in Matthew 22:37,38 would include a husband that beleifs were in line with that as well. our experience has been great:-)

I grew up Baptist and he grew up non denominational. He kind of fell out of going to church after high school. He has visited the Baptist church with me several times and honestly doesn’t like it a whole lot. We have visited a couple of non denominational churches that were pretty good. We are kind of back and forth right now. I like my home church but I want us to attend a church where we can grow together as a couple.

both AG! I am a licensed minister through the Assemblies of God, so it was very important for me to marry someone who attended an AG church. The Lord blessed me with that man over a year ago! God answers prayers!

We were both raised Baptist and both identify non-denominational now. We haven’t picked “our” church yet, but we’re leaning towards the very large, local, contemporary Baptist church that I went to regularly for youth group in high school.

He was raised pentecostal holiness and I was raised southern baptist. We don’t have a regular church yet but we both identify with fundamental, independent baptist church.

He was raised Lutheran and I was raised Baptist. We now attend an non-denominational church together. Fiance was already attending the church when I met him, despite the fact it was a 45 min drive for him. Turns out that church is less than a mile from where I live. I just thought that was cool.

I was raised in a pentecosal church and FH was raised in an open brethren church. To me, it’s more important that we’re together in the same church and serving. It doesn’t mean we have to agree on everything but know that we are all part of the same body that Christ calls us to.

We met at church – we attend a Christian and Missionary Alliance church which is very similar to Baptist. I would definately have to attend the same church as my husband. Children’s ministry is important at our church so our family will attend there as well.

I’m Catholic & SO is sorta Baptist. The only church we’ve been to together just so happens to be a Methodist Church. We have agreed that we will attend my church for Christmas Eve, and his church for Easter. Other than that, either I go to my church & he goes to his church, or we attend the Methodist Church together with his Aunt & Cousin. We are honestly still working this out. Thankfully, we don’t have any kids yet, so there’s no rush. But we’ve discussed our kids being raised Catholic, since traditionally the children follow the mother’s religion in my culture.
