What do you think… Deal or no deal?


Hello Friends!

Tonight my friend asked me a really difficult question, and I’m still thinking about it. So I thought I would give you all something to chew on, too. I’m curious to see what everyone’s thoughts are on this…

Here’s the scenario:

You’ve been dating someone for about 6-8months. It’s the best relationship you’ve ever been in, and you’re starting to really fall for this special person (or maybe you already have). They might even be your soulmate… There’s only one problem: you just found out they don’t agree with you on an issue you feel very strongly about (same-sex marriage, abortion, etc.).

Would you just brush it off and be okay with your differences? Or would that be the deal-breaker, end the relationship, and onto the next one?

Bonus Question: Have you ever been in this situation before? If so, how did you handle it?

    Ive been in a relationship for a year and a half and recently discovered he wants kids before he is 30 and I don’t want them at all. We are still together but it plays on my mind and will probably be a deal breaker in the end. So I’ve brushed it off for now, but not sure about later..

    It would really depend on the issue. There’s issues that I feel VERY strongly about that my fiance and I don’t agree on… but we can just agree to disagree. But there’s other things I know we wouldn’t be able to work if we didn’t agree on [kids, religion, etc.]. I think the distinction being if it’s something you disagree on but doesn’t directly affect your life or future [politics, etc.] versus something that would directly affect you [wanting children or not, how to raise your children, views on money, etc.] that’s whether or not it’s a deal breaker, for me, which I learned from experience.

    I have been in the situation before, I was with someone for 3 1/2 years or so that was a different religion. It came up pretty early in the relationship, what we would do, and I tried to convince myself I’d be okay with converting, or raising our children the other religion but keeping mine, but at the end of the day I realized I really wasn’t. It was just a lie I had been desperately trying to convince myself I believed – but I didn’t, deep down.

    Needless to say that relationship didn’t work out, but thank God it didn’t because now I’m with the love of my life 🙂
