Mixed faith marriage

Other Names:
Inter-faith marriages
Interdenominational marriage
Disparity of worship

The Jewish people are prohibited biblically of marrying out of the faith. The main worry concerns Jewish men who take wives outside the faith because tradition is perpetuated through the maternal line. His children are considered lost.

From a Catholic perspective, disparity of worship renders void the marriage of a Christian with an infidel, that is, of a baptized person with one who is unbaptized.
