If my partner dislikes Buddhism and this creates real crises in the relationship, should I make compromises and reduce how much I practice? Or should I practice secretly?

Lama Ole’s answer:

No, that would probably be pointless. If your partner can no longer be jealous of the practice, he will be jealous of the Bridge evening or anything else you can think of doing. It doesn’t help anybody to remain weak and to block our own development. It is mistaken solidarity to stay in the same hole as others when we have the chance to get out. It is better to trust our own abilities and to strengthen ourselves. Then later in life, we can help others out of the hole too.
