Are catholics dating christians

“We realize that this is a major pastoral issue,” says Sheila Garcia, associate director of the U. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Secretariat on Laity, Marriage, Family Life, and Youth.

Garcia says that while supporting these couples pastorally, the church also is concerned with making sure the Catholic in a mixed-religion marriage continues to practice his or her faith and that the couple takes seriously the Catholic party’s pledge to raise their children Catholic.

My boyfriend is Catholic and I'm just a Christian with no affiliation.

We both agree that we have spiritual belifs (great news) but when it comes to the religious affiliation we're different.

He's a "moderate" Catholic but it's VERY important to his family that our future kids be raised Catholic.

It's not that I wouldn't want this but I'm at a point where I'm still growing spiritually and I'm not ready to make any concrete decisions. He's willing to look at my point of view but I also have not been able to fully give him that point of view because it's still developing.

The problem is that he is religious and has a faith and you are wishy washy, have no real church and just in general believe in Jesus. You convert to Catholicism and raise kids with a strong faith and proud religious tradition(best way to go and most chance of raising great kids) 2.

Something so good, is so bad cause I’ve dedicated my life to Christ and my bf has chosen his own path. If you know someone who is in a committed relationship of which you do not approve, an excellent question to ask yourself—especially before venturing to offer any opinion on that relationship—is whether or not anyone but you gives a rolled-up church bulletin what you think of that relationship.

Dear Christians who make a point of letting their Christian friends who are in serious relationships with non-Christians know that they think it’s wrong for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian: If I ever meet you, I am going to beat you up. More importantly, does anyone actually you’re a Christian, and be quiet about it? Offering unsolicited critical opinions of others makes you a toxic gossip, which is one of the lowest things anyone can be.

Fast-forward several years: Richards and Levy, both 27, are newlyweds who married in a Jewish-Catholic ceremony.

Such marriages—interfaith (between a Catholic and a non-Christian) and interchurch (between a Catholic and another Christian)—have been on the rise for the past 30 years.
