Why is religion so important to a couple?
To form a lasting and harmonious couple, you don't necessarily have to agree on everything and have exactly the same interests, but it's important to share a common vision on the major issues of life: married life, marriage, children, fidelity, etc. When we practice a religion, our views on these major issues of adult life are generally oriented by this religion, which we see as a real guide to life. When we practice a religion, our views on these major issues of adult life are generally oriented by that religion, which we consider to be a true guide to life. When you meet someone based on your religion, you're more likely to share the same vision of life as yourself, and the same long-term objectives: getting married, starting a family, etc.
Likewise, religion will influence your lifestyle, adding to your daily routine moments of prayer, religious holidays and contemplation that you'll be happy to share with a partner who understands their value and importance. Last but not least, dating by religion is a very popular feature for people who have been steeped in religion since their earliest childhood, and who therefore live in a family where this aspect means a great deal. Indeed, even if mixed-religion couples are becoming more and more common, meeting someone with whom to share one's faith can avoid many family conflicts and reassure loved ones by introducing them to someone who shares the same values as they do.
