Religion in Marriage
Religious beliefs can be something quite central in a marriage. Couples planning to get married should discuss how religion will play a part in their lives and what each person holds important.If one partner truly wishes to convert, it should be treated with love and respect. Both partners should attend counseling during the conversion. Couples seeking to remain with two religious beliefs in the house should seek counseling in order to discuss where and how each religion will play into their families’ lives. In complex religious situations, it is imperative that decisions about religion be made early on in the relationship. Marriage counseling, family therapy, or family counseling can alleviate much of the stress caused by religious differences. Counseling and psychotherapy should be with a licensed psychologist, psychotherapist, professional counselor, family therapist, or psychiatrist with experience in this area.
