Would you date/marry someone who was not an atheist?
I have read lots of threads in the past as a lurker, and it seems quite a lot of you atheists here are married to theists. Personally, I would never do that. Especially not since I would like to have children someday. I have never been married, don't have any kids, and am not in a relationship or dating. However, to have a serious relationship, I must find another atheist. I have spent my whole life around conservative Christians and I am completely disgusted with them. I can't stand the idea of willingly living with theists. Therefore, I would never date one, and especially not marry one. I also want to make sure any children I have in the future are raised rationally as freethinkers and have a united consistant outlook from both parents. One thing though, that sucks, is that limiting myself to fellow atheists greatly reduces the number of potential dates and relationships I can have, since atheists are clearly in a minority. How do yall in mixed atheist/theist relationships deal with raising your children, if you have any? I suspect that many atheists that are married to theists were not atheists when they got married, although I'm sure that is not always the case. Anyway, I think this could be an interesting discussion, at least to me.
