I know that everyone here looks to only two places for relationship advice: Savage Love and Pat Robertson.
Robertson received a question from a newly-Christian woman who has been with her fiance for four years. He’s an atheist.
She asks a heartfelt question, too:
How do you think we can interact with each other peacefully when it comes to spiritual matters?
Instead of taking the route of seeking mutual respect and initiating lifelong discussion, Robertson offers this advice:
I’m sure some atheists would agree with his advice for other reasons.
I don’t think a difference in religion is a cause in itself to separate. It depends on a lot of factors, including whether kids may be involved and how they would be raised, and how seriously both sides take their respective beliefs. But without knowing those things, it’s irresponsible to offer the advice he did.
