As more Mormons experience faith transitions and faith awakenings many couples find themselves unexpectedly in mixed-faith marriages. This session presents both personal and professional insights into honoring both the challenges and benefits of differing beliefs in a marriage. We will highlight the gifts associated with individualization and fostering mutual respect for each person’s spiritual journey. We will offer suggestions for reducing conflict, improving communication, and strengthening a couple’s emotional connection and intimacy.
