What is your religion's position on inter-faith marriage? Is it just discouraged but accepted? No big deal? A big no-no? What happens if a person marrys someone of another faith?

In a Catholic session don't the wife/husband have to go the church for classes for like 9 weeks before the marriage or something?civilcynic said:I was raised Catholic and married a man who was raised Southern Baptist. I have never been a strict Catholic and have always been tolerant of other people's beliefs so marrying outside my religion was not an issue as long as my husband and I agreed on the basic moral values that were important to us.
Unfortunately, the Catholic Church didn't quite see it that way.......As a result, we were denied a Catholic wedding and went with a non-denominational minister. We've been married for 19 yrs. and still going strong. The only effects that our inter-faith marriage has had on us is that I no longer practice Catholicism and I decided not to raise my daughter Catholic. I have no regrets regarding either of those decisions.
For a Buddhist this isn't a problem, unless the person of another faith chooses to make an issue of it.Maize said:What is your religion's position on inter-faith marriage? Is it just discouraged but accepted? No big deal? A big no-no? What happens if a person marrys someone of another faith?
That's the kind of church I grew up in. Not only did they forbid inter-faith marriages, but bi-racial marriages too.EEWRED said:Actually, I attend the Church of Christ and they range from ultra scary conservative
