A note about religion from Polywifen's blog

I have had a couple of conversations about religion recently that has rather put me on the spot.  Truth is, this is a large cultural difference that can be hard for Americans especially to get their heads around.  Fact is, we in Europe are usually very secular, those who are religious tend to practice our faith in a much more private way.  As I do, you have to know me really well to know of my religion at all, I don't talk about it unless asked, I am not coy about it, it is just not at the forefront of my mind all the time.


We don't feel that everyone needs to be religiously involved in everything we do, any more than our family needs to be involved in our hobbies for example.  It is a bonus, not an imperative.  I know that is strange for really religious people to understand, but it is not unusual here to have interfaith relationships, it can be quite common. 


I haven't put religion as something that is an important match factor, it isn't important that my future spouse thinks the same as me, what IS important is that he knows I don't share his faith and to respect that, this is all.


I won't appreciate being preached to, being expected to take part in worship, listening to nightly readings from a religious book I don't believe in or attempts to convert me (I won't work regardless and will just upset us both).  So, just be aware, if sharing a faith is important to you, we will not be a good match, if sharing a life in all other ways is more important to you, if having a wife fully devoted to you and the rest of the family is, than please contact me.

Interesting. I am in America. We usually believe we can share without preaching to one another. It is a great thing to be able to do. Sorry that you equate these two things that are very different. Maybe you should have thicker skin. perhaps you cannot handle a poly lifestyle. ;)Interesting. I am in America. We usually believe we can share without preaching to one another.

If the winky face is supposed to denote a joke, you are making a poor job of it, what has 'not wanting to be converted' to do with having a thick skin? I am being honest about where my line in the sand is and in case you did not notice, I wrote I will respect and support my future families/husband's path, without him having to share mine, that is respectful. 'Sharing' to me might be about sharing one's festivals, talking about how other cultures/religions do things, preaching is NOT 'sharing' Preaching is an attempt to get someone else to absorb your message, that is why it is called preaching. Now I am sorry that this confused you, but I know the difference. Good luck to you and I hope you find a person who exactly sees the world like you do so you don't have to worry about having any sort of inconvenience to your life at all because goodness knows polygamy doesn't cause any changes at all.......If the winky face is supposed to denote a joke, you are making a poor job of it, what has 'not wanting to be converted' to do with having a thick skin?
