    Would you convert your religion becuase your "love" demands it, or because you think you'll have better chances marrying your "love"?

    Sure, why not? It's all the same crap in the end.

    As religion isn't important to me, if I have to fake it being important to me by doing some conversion, then there is no reason I should be with that person.

    The NT says that should not be done:

    Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?" (2 Cor. 6:14, KJV).

    That would not be a win win situation, IMNSHO.

    I'm not an unbeliever (in God, that is), though. Just not religious.

    What if the love of your life wanted you to be religious and to the whole Sunday singing and dinner on the ground? Would you be up at the crack of dawn frying chicken? :lol:

    No. Why live a lie? And why would someone who loves you demand it? Invite. Encourage, entice, etc. yes but demand?

    The sister of a German Pop-Star converted to Islam for her boyfriend, who is German soccer-player, and she even changed her name from Anna Maria to Melek (Angel). She probably thought she could marry him by doing that. 3 months later he dumped her and she now says she isn't Muslima anymore.
    She's 28 and he's 22 and one of best football-players in world.

    This evening (European Qualifiers) he destroyed the gaylords from Belgium.
    He scored 1 goal and made the assist to the other 2 goals for Germany.
