Challenges of dating a preacher

“Their marriage is rooted in the Christian faith through their baptism,” Hater explains.

Stricter branches of Judaism, such as Orthodox and Conservative, forbid or strongly discourage Jews from marrying non-Jews and prohibit their rabbis from participating in interreligious marriage ceremonies.Theologian Robert Hater, author of the 2006 book, “When a Catholic Marries a Non-Catholic,” writes: “To regard mixed religion marriages negatively does them a disservice.They are holy covenants and must be treated as such.” A marriage can be regarded at two levels – whether it is valid in the eyes of the Church and whether it is a sacrament.A marriage between a Catholic and another Christian is also considered a sacrament.In fact, the church regards all marriages between baptized Christians as sacramental, as long as there are no impediments.
