    I was raised Unitarian and DH was raised mostly nothing except for the brief period in which his mom decided they were Episcopalian and got DH baptized as Episcopalian...random. Anyway, OP, my dad was raised Jewish and my mom was raised Lutheran/Methodist. They didn't practice any religion until they had kids and that's when they started taking us to the Unitarian Church. DH and I also attend Unitarian Church, all though we're not members yet so I don't know if I would say we are Unitarian. But it might be a good place for you and your DH to start, because anyone is welcome to attend services or join regardless of your spiritual beliefs or lack thereof. It's a nice way to be a part of a community while continuing to explore your own spiritual path.

    We don't really claim a religion. We both believe in God, Jesus, etc. We just haven't put a label on it. I'm leaning more towards spiritual.

    My ex was hugely Christian, and it was a problem for us.

    I'm atheist, very proudly so, and I don't think I could ever be married to someone who wasn't Atheist/ Agnostic.

    DB and I were raised the same way: little bit of church when we were young then the choice to choose what we believe. And we believe exactly the same thing, (we believe in a higher power and God, but that everything happens for a reason and karma). We're both totally laid back about it though.

    His grandparents are hardcore Cuban Catholics, his parents aren't very religious.
    My grandparents and parents believe in God (loosely, we never talk about it and their faith isn't apparent) but haven't stepped foot in a church in years.

    I am Catholic and dh is Baptist and it has never been an issue in our relationship.. Probably cause I haven't stepped foot in a Catholic church in over 15 years.. We have gone to Christian churches and there is a better fit for both of us and our children..

    We're in the same boat
    When yall find a church you're comfortable with, let me know. I've been trying to figure this out for years. Spiritual does really cover it better

    Yes we are, but it was a coincidence. It wouldn't have mattered to me if we weren't.
