Resources for LDS Mixed-Faith Marriages


While you’re going through the pain of a faith transition, your spouse may not be having the same experience. Difficult conversations take place when what feels sacred to your spouse feels painful for you. If you’re in a mixed-faith marriage (that didn’t start out as mixed-faith) you may need some help figuring out how to stay connected to your spouse.

Here’s a big list of resources that might be useful for those of you trying to strengthen your marriage without relying on shared faith:
