Charlie said:

The differences that push you apart are directly dependent upon how tightly you each hold on to your own view.

A reader responds:

My fiancé and I have been together for a year now and he is Agnostic. I am a Christian. We disagree a lot but the subject comes up just as much. But the both of us have learned to realize our differences and agree to disagree.

HOWEVER. My fiancé and I have also discussed our children (when we have them) and THEIR faith and HE was man enough to say that he will support whatever faith it is that *I* teach them. He said he wouldn't push his beliefs on them whatsoever and I will just teach them what I know.

That way, later in life, they can make their OWN decision as to if they want to believe or not.
