As I understand, all Gods are same. Maa Sita and Maa Parvati are two names of same omnipresent entity. To me both Sri RAma and Sri Siva are same entities appearing as different. Technically there is no difference between them.
One may worship another at one instance and vice versa. It is just to create faith and devotion in the devotees, nothing more.
KanadhAra stotram says
शाकम्भरीति शशिशेखरवल्लभेति ।
तस्यै नमस्त्रिभुवनैकगुरोस्तरुण्यै ॥ १०॥
We offer obeisance to the Goddess Mahalakshmi, the consort of Narayana, the preceptor of all the three worlds. She is variously known as Saraswati the Goddess of Learning, as Goddess Lakshmi, the Divine consort of Mahavishnu, as Shakambhari or as Parvati the consort of Lord Maheshwara. Verily it is she who is playfully engaged in creation, protaction and final destruction of the Universe || 10 ||
There is no distinction between the three.
Jai Shri Rama
