Marriage between two people of different religions - if they chose the religions for themselves and don't just belong to the religions because their families do - will always cause conflict, no matter what the two religions are. Why? Because for those who are strong in their faith, religion is the basis for the way you look at the world. If two people have different beliefs about the meaning of life and the way to please God, it would be hard to agree on how to live on a day-to-day basis. And living together on a day-to-day basis is what marriage is all about.
