    I agree with -=d=- Bonnie. As a mom from a failed marriage, I do think it would have helped to have had a joint viewpoint on the importance of marriage, God, and family. Those fathers that do, you will reap the rewards.

    before i got married and then again before we decided to have children my wife and i agreed our children would be raised with religion (even though neither of us was) and would go to church.....it was all sorted out and negotiated ahead of time....a solid moral and ethical foundation is critical to being a good human being...further i read the "childrens" bible to my son every night....he has become the kindest, sweetest, polite, most thoughtful young man i have ever met....

    Honestly Kathianne I don't know how in the world I could have gotten thru some of the things that happened to me so far without faith, same for my parents. It's easy to forget that when we get caught up in all the stresses and distractions of daily life.

    I will most definately be looking for someone who shares my values before even considering getting re-married, otherwise to me it would be pointless.

    I do really believe that when you raise kids with faith and conviction they grow up happier, more secure about themselves, and much better equipped to cope with life good and bad.
