Naomi Schaefer Riley, Author, ‘Til Faith Do Us Part

In the last decade, 45 percent of all marriages in the U.S. were between people of different faiths, which may signal increasing social tolerance. But as couples age, major life challenges often inspire a return to faith, sometimes overwhelming earlier beliefs that love conquers all. And then there’s the children to raise. Drawing on in-depth interviews with couples, clergy and counselors, Riley shows why fundamental spiritual and practical issues might divide interfaith couples.
