When religion is an important part in one person's life and not the other's, Annie Lane suggests you might want to find a new partner whose beliefs are more closely aligned to your own.AP
Dear Annie: My girlfriend is driving me nuts talking about religion. Every time we talk, she brings it up or mentions it. I’ve told her that I don’t want to discuss it anymore. She does not understand how I feel about this. What should I do? I told her just to email me for now. — Rubbed Wrong by Religion
Dear Rubbed: You two have reached an impasse over what is undeniably a major dealbreaker. It sounds like your girlfriend’s faith is incredibly important to her, and that’s not likely to change in your favor any time soon.
It’s OK to think and feel differently from one another, but if you can’t stomach hearing about something she’s obviously so passionate about, you’re better off finding someone whose views more closely align with yours. A relationship that’s been relegated entirely to email surely won’t survive.
