Sure, it could happen: a happy one-on-one romantic relationship between an Atheist and a religious person. It could, but it doesn’t seem to happen often anymore.
It used to be, not long ago, that the merger of a religious person with a nonbeliever was fairly common. Many of our parents were a couple in which one was religious, one not. (Usually it was the woman who was more religious.)
But these days, a belief-mixed couple seems to be rare. Modern day Atheists who look for romance on Internet match-up sites invariably look for other Atheists. What has happened to the mixed-belief couple? Have they gone the way of snail-mail or paper letters? What has been your experience in this realm? If a mixed-belief relationship didn’t work out for you, why not? Or can love conquer all?
Come on Wednesday, March 13, to hear, in a warm, supportive atmosphere, the happy/unhappy experiences of your fellow Atheists on this topic.
This group is led by the insightful, always-on-your-side, private-practice therapist, Linda Blaikie, L.C.S.W.
