    What does Bilble say about a beliver/Protestant girl marrying a Catholic?

    Are there any references? Is it possible to have an interfaith marriage?

    When the Bible was written there was no such thing as Catholicism or Protestantism. In fact for most of the history of Christianity itself there was no such distinction. So the Bible does not contain any scripture about the subject.

    I don't see a reason why a Protestant and a Catholic who love each other can't get married.

      Right, but Norine makes an excellent point below.  What religion will the child practice?  Where will the child be baptized?  What church will the family go on Sunday?

      Catholicism and Protestantism are two sides of the same religion. The parents could reach a compromise or leave their churches and choose a sect of Christianity that reflects both their views. People should not be locked from birth into a sect.

      Tit: Scripture says "Train up a child .." (Prov 22:6)  Although the child maybe "locked from birth into a sect," he will have the basics & can make decision for himself afterwards, as I have. Dissention btwn parents is the problem! Not pretty!

    Yes, it's possible, but always controversy!  If you decide to have children, what religion will they be?  First controversy!  Not to mention the different "beliefs" the different denominations have!  More controvesy! 

    That's why Scripture tells us "not to be "Unequally" yoked! II Corinthians 6:14 says "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers (Well, you say they believe in God, which maybe true, but how do they believe children should be baptized; sprinkled as a child or by immersion?); for what fellwship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?  And what communion hath light with darkness?"

    You may think this is something that really doesn't matter, but when children arrive, controversy begins!  This saying may offend, but II Corinthians 7:8-16 says "For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did reprent; for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season."

    Some begin marriage with both being of the same denomination, yet one goes to another faith during marriage.  If so, I Corinthians 7:12-14 applies, which says, "for the unbelieving is sanctified by the other" but this does not speak to the "initial" marriage.

    Hope this helps!

      So Technically speaking, an interfaith marriage is possible, right? Controversies, yes it is always a part and parcel of such marriages. But I wanna make sure that Bible does not restrict from doing so.

      Mel: Consider I Pet 3:1-8. "One mind" Less controversy! Rem:"What GOD has joined together" Marriage is an allegory in Script: As Christ is to the church. How do u thk Christ & church married? He "brings us" to Him, then marry! "We" can, but contr

    The Bible doesn't say anything about Protestants and Catholics marrying, because neither religion existed when the Bible stories supposedly took place.

    However, my father was Episcopalian, and my mother Catholic, and they were not allowed to marry in either church unless one of them converted. They opted for a civil service. As far as I know, both the bride and the groom must be Catholic in order to marry in a Catholic church ceremony.
