Perhaps this is because interfaith couples recognise from the start that they will have Who doesn't know a Catholic who thinks birth control, or divorce, say “I' m Christian,” or “I'm Muslim,” or a Sikh, or a Hindu, or a Mormon. I'm 22 years old and having been dating a Mormon guy for five years. We have discussed getting married but there is only one problem: I want to stay Catholic. Interfaith marriages are often underrepresented in LDS discourse on I see the essential barrier to interfaith dating and marriage is a reticence in the Mormon and enriching experiences in Catholic and LDS congregations.

The result is a lack of a fatherly example in living the Catholic faith. The result is also a bad message to the children: That the difference between the Mormon religion and the Catholic religion doesn't matter much. That will make it easy for the children to fall away, when they leave home.
Do you really want all those troubles making your family life harder?
It's not as if the two religions were very close, like Catholicism and Greek Orthodoxy. Mormonism doesn't even believe in the Christian concept of what God is.

I also realize there are challenges ahead: Our faith may warp and change. I have many friends who were married in the temple, but now one member has left Mormonism, or changed beliefs, or their children have struggled with faith. I believe compatibility, mutual respect, and genuine kindness are the most important things to look for in a marriage partner.

Bucknell Jackley What about the kids? Our philosophy on this comes from something the Buddha said. To this point, we want to give our three young sons depth.
Can we still get married and have kids, if I want to stay Catholic and he wants to stay Mormon?
We aim to give them the tools any believer needs to practice their faith, so we pray together, sing songs, meditate, read and reflect on sacred texts. We do this together at home and in churches and other places of worship, near and far. But depth is not the only goal we have for our children.
We want to help them become religiously literate citizens, giving them breadth as well. So, we read the Bible and the Ramayana. We sing gospels and chant mantras.
We talk about the Buddha and tell folk religion origin stories. We build sukkahs and release our clay Ganeshas into the ocean.
We decorate our Christmas tree and light our menorah.
