As of 2006, 25 percent of U.S. households were made of interfaith couples, according to the Washington Post.
The paper reported:
The American Religious Identification Survey of 2001 reported that 27 percent of Jews, 23 percent of Catholics, 39 percent of Buddhists, 18 percent of Baptists, 21 percent of Muslims and 12 percent of Mormons were then married to a spouse with a different religious identification. If you want to see what the future holds, note this: Less than a quarter of the 18- to 23-year-old respondents in the National Study of Youth and Religion think it's important to marry someone of the same faith.
Last month SpokaneFAVS posted a poll question about interfaith dating that prompted quite a discussion. So, we thought we'd take it further by asking our panelists.
Is it OK to date someone outside of your faith?
