When 2 people marry, they are joining together to become '1'. At least, that is way I believe marriage was intended. If each person holds any view, especially religious faith, in opposition, it will never be possible to act as '1'. For those who merely attend church as a habit or perhaps social reasons, this doesn't create too much of a problem, however, for those who 'live' their faith, it is often the single bond that will keep them together. If they are truly faithful to their religion, they are able to work through problems using their faith and beliefs.
