I want to give you a little tip on communication.
One way to improve communication is to remove the obstacles to effective communication.
I want to highlight one obstacle here:
I have seen mixed faith marriages where the partners see each other as morally deficient due to faith differences. What I mean by this is that you think the other person is WRONG in their faith choice and therefore not as righteous, worthy, smart, aware or educated. You may think things like:
-How could they believe that?
-They broke their promise.
-How could they support that?
-How could they choose that?
This type of thinking can be poison to a relationship. It can cause partners to show up with contempt or derision. That never feels good to anyone. It also can completely ruin any attempt at communication.
I want to suggest that before engaging in a conversation about religion in your mixed faith marriage you clean this up. Otherwise, it is going to come across in your conversation and cause PROBLEMS. Trust me on this one.
If you want to engage in a conversation try this instead:
Decide what you want the outcome to look like.Maybe your intention is to be loving and supportive. Maybe it is to not try to change their mind but to seek understanding. Maybe it is to build connection.
