What I learn from my beautiful interfaith couples

I met another beautiful couple this weekend. They truly represent the best of what an interfaith couple is – they are loving and kind to one another. They are interested in each other’s families and traditions and they want to make everyone happy – not in a way that diminishes them – but rather, in a way that enhances each of them. So what I learn each time I meet with
a beautiful interfaith couple is that kindness matters; that respect for the other is paramount; and that each can be true to him or herself and still join hands in a partnership where each has a different history and heritage. It is a challenge for many and for some, an interfaith relationship is not possible because of dearly held beliefs and traditions that they want to share with their life parter. But for those who do it well it is a thing of beauty!
