My gf broke up with me because we aren't from the same religion (me Hindu, her Christian), and view God and nature of the world differently. She says it's important to share similar beliefs as it helps the couple target similar goals. My feeling was that even the future goals for us were somewhat similar, and while some methods to were different, because we grew up differently, they aren't significant enough to breakup.
Is having a similar belief system very important ? Won't a little bit of pragmatism help here?
It hurts because she was the most amazing person me, or anyone could ever meet. Polite, intelligent, educated. The whole episode makes me think it's not worth dating outside religion/culture.
My rant ends here. I needed to get it out of my system since I have very few real friends outside to talk to.
You got the wrong takeaway from this experience.
