    It doesn't bother us. When I did go to services I went, and he picked me up. He comes to my non-religious passover Seder with friends. I do Christmas with his family. I don't know, it's just not a problem.

    Now... if we had kids, I'm sure it'd be more of a hassle.


    As for just starting at a new temple... I'd look online for ones that are within your sect. I'm reform, so I look at the urj.org (Union for Reform Judiasm) to see what temples are in my area. I'm sure there's something like that for Conservative and Orthodox. I'd also ask around?

    I really loved the temple in my last town, but I haven't gone since I moved 'cos I haven't been comfortable finding a new place. I need to start looking again. I imagine if you phone most places will talk with you and you can show up and see what you think.

    Good luck!
    im sooo glad to know there is others in the same boat as me...my cousin got married and pretty much made her hubby convert so i feel bad saying that im ok with him being how he is n me being how i am...this makes me feel better

    Although i do believe all children should be made aware of all religions so they are better able to choose which one sounds "right" to them.

    this. exactly.

    when we first met, dh was agnostic and i was Christian, but he has since come into a relationship with Jesus, and i couldn't be more thrilled. it is SO important to both of us now, and i don't know where we would be otherwise.

    I will do what God asks me to do; I will give God what I cannot do; and no matter what, I will trust the Lord.

    OP, I'm just like you and your SO. I'm Jewish, and I rarely go to synagogue. I go for the High Holidays, and that's about it. DB was raised Catholic, and he still says he is, though he hasn't gone to church since I've been with him.

We have agreed to raise them in the same church I was raised in (UU) because of the chance to explore other religions and make a decision on their own about what belief system works for them.



    This is exactly how I became UU- my parents were both raised Catholic and fell away from the church, I needed a community. 20+ years later they are still attending the UU church.



    I love knowing I am not the only UU military spouse out there- my MIL has told me not believing in 'god' means that her son is going to die while away at war because I cannot truly pray for him
    This is so interesting! I went to a UU service once, and I felt like I was in a philosophy class! It is a really interesting religion actually! Many poets...like Coleridge was UU right?

    We both are the same religion (VERY IMPORTANT to both of us) and pretty much the same denomination. I was raised Baptist and DH's Dad is a pastor for a Missonary Alliance church. His Mom and Dad(his Mom from birth till college and his Dad till highschool) were both raised in Asian(Indonesia) villages because their parent's were missionarys so it is a huge deal to all of them as well.
