How would you react if a family member were to marry a born-again Christian – or an atheist? adults – especially Christians – are neutral toward the idea of welcoming someone who doesn’t believe in God into their family through marriage.
A new Pew Research Center survey found that despite high levels of political polarization overall, most Americans in each major political party said “it wouldn’t matter” if an immediate family member married someone who identifies with the opposite party. About three-quarters of white evangelicals (77%) and two-thirds of black Protestants (67%) in the survey said they would be unhappy if a family member were to marry an atheist, as did 55% of Catholics and 46% of white mainline Protestants.

Assure real it's deal to me, it’s the fact that he probably.
Not because I have some fancy Ivy League degree hanging on my wall, nor because I’m a published marriage counselor—no, I’m a marriage expert because I’ve been married twice. My first marriage was to a lovely woman of like-spirituality. I know this, because my second wife, an even more lovely Christian woman named Rachel, told me so.
I’m a big believer in the school of you-don’t-know-it-until-you’ve-done-it. We were both humanists (which is a fancy term for do-gooder atheists) of Jewish descent. Rachel also told me that our marriage is a resounding success, and I believe her.
She has been leading this extreme religious life for three years now with no intention to quit and get a paying job.
She has rejected our traditional life, and seldom visits.
By comparison, Americans who are religiously unaffiliated are much more comfortable with the prospect of a family member marrying a born-again Christian.
Most religious “nones” (73%) said that such a union would not matter to them, while one-in-ten (9%) even said they would be to see such a marriage. Even among people who specifically identify themselves as atheists or agnostics, two-thirds (67%) said it wouldn’t matter if a family member married a born-again Christian, while just a quarter (26%) said they’d be unhappy.
That marriage failed when she realized that she didn’t love me. We both have no doubt that we will be together until we die, at which point we will be separated. Even Milli and Vanilli are different—in fact, they aren’t even themselves.
