Most of us tend not to wear our religion on our sleeve and from a young age, we’re discouraged from talking about it in polite society. Consequently, we tend to not to know how to make inquiries about it. We prefer to tell ourselves that love will conquer all but make no mistake, for many people their religion is as ingrained in them as their culture and they have not seriously considered the negotiations required to commit to someone of another belief system.
When the moment comes, don’t get shy. It’s better to know what you’re getting yourself into rather than being shocked at a later time.
