Religious diversity is the fact that there are significant differences in religious belief and practice. It has always been recognized by people outside the smallest and most isolated communities. But since early modern times, increasing information from travel, publishing, and emigration have forced thoughtful people to reflect more deeply on religious diversity. Roughly, pluralistic approaches to religious diversity say that, within bounds, one religion is as good as any other.
In contrast, exclusivist approaches say that only one religion is uniquely valuable. Finally, inclusivist theories try to steer a middle course by agreeing with exclusivism that one religion has the most value while also agreeing with pluralism that others still have significant religious value.

I am looking for some help. I am a Southeast Asian man who has grown up a Buddhist with my family. I recent got engaged and my girlfriend is from a Roman Catholic family. To be clear, I have absolutely no problems compromising and getting married in a church. My family loves my fiance and understands that we have different faiths and different upbringings and that if church is what will make her happy, they will be there to support us. From what I understand, in order to make this happen, most times the non-Catholic takes cannon classes, or even converts.
I just want her to have her dream wedding and to make her happy for the rest of our lives. However, for this one day in our lives, I am not willing to compromise who I am and what I believe, just as I would not ask her to do the same. The Church does not require you to convert, in order to marry a Catholic. The Church requires a Catholic, however, in most cases, to be married in a Catholic church by a Catholic priest or deacon. Or, is it that your fiancee — or her family — is telling you that you must convert to Catholicism?
If so, it may be out of a mistaken notion that only Catholics can get married in a church. You two should plan to schedule a meeting with her Catholic pastor, to talk about the wedding.
