About This Quiz

If you're a person of faith, then your relationship with God will surely impact your relationships with your fellow human beings, and none more profoundly then your romantic relationship. After all, while you might be happy to be with an atheist or a person of a different faith tradition than yours, you wouldn't want to be with a person who flat out thinks the whole idea of faith is just ridiculous. That's a short road to contempt for something that's really important to you, and contempt is the acid that can eat the heart out of any relationship.

There are lots of ways that your relationship with God might affect your relationship. For example, if you really want to marry within your faith, then if you come from a relatively small faith group, you might struggle more than average to find a single person. If your boo is converting to a faith that demands a lot of work from newbies, that'll really slow things down. If you're very devout, you're less likely to cohabit ahead of time, meaning you will generally marry a little faster. Tell us about your faith, and we'll figure out what the timeline of true love will look like for you!
