Interfaith marriages.

It started slow, but our first Philocrites discussion topic — interfaith marriages — is generating some good conversation. What are the challenges and blessings of marrying someone from another (or no) religious tradition? Share your personal observations — no rants, lectures, or sermons, please! — in the comments string. (If you want to suggest a topic for the next discussion, click the Suggestion Box.)

I'm particularly interested in how Unitarian Universalists deal with interfaith marriage, but I've discovered that many or most of my readers aren't "UUs." If you want to join in the conversation, no matter what your own religious background is, please do!

My husband and I are both Catholic I converted without giving much thought to the matter. I thought because we both believed in christ everything would be swell. Its not. I have issues with the style of worship and the idol worship in Catholic churches. I also resent the fact that my husband thought it best that I convert and not just bind the religions together. I probably need marriage counseling but I trust that God will lead

Suzy, I hope you will see that God may be leading you to seek marriage counseling. It's not either-or: That sense that you and your husband might benefit from some sympathetic, unbiased help from a professional might be the Spirit talking to you. Please trust it.
