People of different religious beliefs will inevitably have some differences in the process of getting along with each other. If the dating parties are not of the same religion, what lessons should they pay attention to to avoid conflict?

1. Accept Different Mind with Practical Actions

Do you often show your open mind when facing people with different religious beliefs? Have you ever taken any practical actions to accept your partner's belief? The first lesson to be put forward here is to better understand each other in terms of religion through some behaviors, such as reading articles about your partner's religion, learning about his or her religious customs, etc. Of course, when you encounter contradictions related to this problem, you should patiently explain your real ideas to each other, striving to realize the acceptance of different religious beliefs in practice.

2. Put Your Love Before Religious Belief

Two people who really love each other are not together for religious discussion, but to establish a stable and long-term intimate relationship. Although religion may be very important to a believer, the first thing you should consider is the close relationship with your partner when you quarrel with the other party. In other words, you'd better take your precious religious belief as a guide to your life direction, rather than letting it become a stumbling block in your emotional life. 

3. Change for Someone but not Because of Someone

It is very stupid to change any of your characteristics in order to please your partner, so remember to remind yourself that such a relationship usually does not have positive results. When dealing with partners of different religions, you must try to look at things from the perspective of the other side on the basis of adhering to yourself. In other words, you are allowed to accept your partner’s religious ideas and be inspired by them, which will allow you to develop a deeper understanding of each other. But it’s not recommended to forcibly accept all his/her thoughts for accommodation and obedience. I believe this is the truth that every mature adult understands and can do.

I believe that the related contradiction caused by religious differences can be solved as long as you enlarge the similarities and narrow the differences between you two.
