Catholic dating a non denominational
Hi everyone, im new and I hope some of you can share with me your opinions on this topic, or help with some advice.I was raised Catholic, Catholic school my whole life, attended church regularly, etc.The Catholic Church calls this situation "disparity of cult," and there are circumstances in which such a marriage may be allowed.Here is what the Difference of confession between the spouses does not constitute an insurmountable obstacle for marriage, when they succeed in placing in common what they have received from their respective communities, and learn from each other the way in which each lives in fidelity to Christ.A: We get this question a lot – and unfortunately there’s not a definite yes or no answer.As Lisa Cotter explains in her blog about “evangedating,” “sometimes God uses human love and attraction to bring people closer to Him.” Check out her article to read about scenarios where dating a non-Christian could be where God is (or isn’t) leading you.Relationships are never easy, but when you’re both able to trust in God and share your faith, you gain so much.Our relationship with Jesus should affect every aspect of our lives, so naturally having that in common with whoever you’re dating is a huge blessing.
This permission or dispensation presupposes that both parties know and do not exclude the essential ends and properties of marriage; and furthermore that the Catholic party confirms the obligations, which have been made known to the non-Catholic party, of preserving his or her own faith and ensuring the baptism and education of the children in the Catholic Church.So he never went to church, recieved the other sacraments, etc. It does mean alot to me as it is how i was raised, and I would like to have our wedding blessed in a Church. But I am having trouble finding a church who will marry us.I keep getting told that we have to be part of the parish.Is a Catholic allowed to marry a non-Christian under any circumstances?I know Scripture states not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers, but does this mean there are no circumstances in which a Catholic could enter into marriage with a non-Christian?
