Wait a minute, maybe we aren’t so different after all! Everyone has faith of some kind, even atheists (we can’t prove there is no God, we simply there is no God).

By recognizing your own faith, even if it’s belief in mammon—or as Washington Irving called it: “The Almighty Dollar”—you can understand how essential faith is to the core of our being.

Many people can’t survive the grand Canyon that comes between the two points of view.

Many theists have a narrow scope of vision about atheists.

Most atheists have left the dogmatic thinking of resolved divine answers without questions, to question everything.

Including why they believe anything and everything that they do.

Either way, we won’t be together anymore, and that’s sad. Rachel is a Christian and I am a heretical Jewish humanist. Christians and people of other faiths are different. I never will be that woman, and while I can understand her, empathize with her, feel pretty in her clothes, and love her deeply, I will never really know the depths of her experiences or the convictions of her beliefs.

How can we fully be together when we don’t share the same spirituality? Christians of different denominations are different. No one will, except God (if you’re into that sort of thing).

Not because I have some fancy Ivy League degree hanging on my wall, nor because I’m a published marriage counselor—no, I’m a marriage expert because I’ve been married twice. My first marriage was to a lovely woman of like-spirituality. I know this, because my second wife, an even more lovely Christian woman named Rachel, told me so.

I’m a big believer in the school of you-don’t-know-it-until-you’ve-done-it. We were both humanists (which is a fancy term for do-gooder atheists) of Jewish descent. Rachel also told me that our marriage is a resounding success, and I believe her.

Anyways, I really do love him, but I feel so conflicted inside..should I do?
