Indonesia has one of the world’s most religiously diverse populations – but can different faiths co-exist in a marriage? With interfaith unions on the rise, Christian Jessica Jackley and Muslim Reza Aslan think they can. Join them for a deeply personal chat about different backgrounds, shared values, raising kids – and how essentially all marriages bring together two people with different beliefs.

Indonesia memiliki salah satu populasi agama yang paling beragam di dunia – tetapi bisakah agama yang berbeda hidup berdampingan dalam pernikahan? Dengan meningkatnya hubungan antaragama, Jessica Jackley yang Kristen dan Reza Aslan yang Muslim berpikir bahwa mereka bisa menghadapinya. Bergabunglah dengan mereka untuk obrolan yang sangat pribadi tentang latar belakang yang berbeda, nilai-nilai bersama, membesarkan anak-anak – dan bagaimana pada dasarnya semua pernikahan menyatukan dua orang dengan keyakinan yang berbeda.
