One Religion in the Home

A cyberspace question from Malaysia, “If I marry a man from another religion, what religion do I follow? Mine, his, both, neither?”

Traditionally you would follow the religion of your husband to have a happy productive life and to raise your children properly. Sometimes it’s the other way around however because the husband is not very religious and the wife is, so he follows the religion of the wife. To avoid conflicts in the future there should only be one religion in the home. To avoid having the children confused about religion, maybe rejecting it all together, there should be one religion in the home.

A very good question to settle before marriage.
