    Do you have any actual evidence of that, or are you just spouting nonsense and expecting people to agree with you because you said it?

    The only evidence one would produce is based on IQ tests, and we all know that these do a very poor job of measuring intelligence. So, while there might be evidence for this, it isn't anything I would take seriously.

    Huh, I'd never heard that before. That is interesting. I wonder if it ties in with Kiersey temperaments?

    And the thread wasn't about love, it was about marriage. Most people marry after they got through the whole infatuation phase of love, so rational decisions about personal compability and the fact that if a potential for clash exists it'd have had time to blossom 'd take a major place in deciding to marry. (assuming that most people don't marry right away)
    I guess it depends on what a "religious person" is.
    Where I live, there are quite a lot of people who believe in God, but they don't go to church, or do God related activities. Nor do they talk about God.
    I personally don't mind that.

    However, in other places the situation may be different.

    I've noticed that the younger generations tend to dump their belief in God, they're arguing online and stuff.

    Which is very interesting.

    Since obsolete well rooted theories need many generations to pass, for new beliefs to appear.

    So, theoretically, the odds of falling in love with a woman who believes in God are higher than the odds of falling in love with a woman who doesn't believe in God, since there are MORE OF THEM.

    So, you are saying that, even if you would love her, you wouldn't marry her? That's nonsense.
    You did not indeed, but this post can only be true if the chances of falling in love were equal with everyone.

    Moreover, I'm very iffy about your first statement. The problem I think I have is because of this:
    So, theoretically, the odds of falling in love with a woman who believes in God are higher than the odds of falling in love with a woman who doesn't believe in God, since there are MORE OF THEM.
    The chances of falling in love to a theist will indeed grow higher, but not absolutely higher compared to the chances of falling to an atheist.

    So you are saying that you have a higher chance of falling in love with a person you can relate to on an intellectual level?

    Yes. But obviously, there are many other factors as well.

    On topic: I was leaning to vote 'Yes' to this poll, but then I read the the green part, so I voted 'No'.

    I was once courted by a Catholic. Long story short: He found out I was an atheist and tried to convince me otherwise. He wasn't that of a hardcore level, and I admired his persistence. But I thought that if his assertiveness continues, then the relationship wouldn't work. We're still friends fortunately, and we make contact once in a while.

    So, we have different definitions of religious people
