What should I do if my spouse is a different religion than me?
The most important thing to remember is that a marriage is not just a union between two families, but a union between two families. But not to worry, interfaith and nonreligious weddings happen everyday and don’t have to be a stressful event. The best way to do it is to have a meeting with both families. Make sure to include all the members that care the most like super religious grandma Maria. Discuss what aspects are most important in each religion and settle. Remember that it doesn’t always have to be one or the other and aspects of both religions can be combined. For examples, there have been many weddings where both a Minister and a Rabbi held the ceremony together. There’s also the option of having a completely unreligious ceremony. Talk it out with your spouse, your families, and the officiants, and you’re sure to come to a compromise that works for everyone.Back
