Having shared values can definitely reduce the amount of disagreements you have in various areas of your relationship.
For example, if you both want to have kids but practice different religions, there could be serious disagreements over how to raise the children.
But, this is not to say that if you don’t share most of the same values your relationship won’t work. I’m not saying that all!!
Ultimately, it comes down to each persons ability to compromise and be flexible in their “ways.”
Don’t Count Him Out!
The truth is, you could meet a great man that doesn’t share the same beliefs as you, but is accepting of your choice and willing to expose your children to both religions.
So, try to not get caught up in having all of the same beliefs as your man and keep yourself open to great men that could come along in very different packages!!
