There is this girl at my college that is interested in me. I don't go to church at all and have had premarital sex. You could, however, be friends or just date casually because you enjoy each other's company.But romance - nah, not without a lot more life experience, maturity and ability to compromise on both sides. She goes to church two times a week and believes premarital sex is a sin.I also wonder, if my boyfriend's interpretation of theology is correct, why the Catholic Church would ever sanction this kind of marriage under any circumstances. And it certainly doesn't have anything to do with helping out with your salvation, which is also his job as a spouse.I wonder if you could point us to any resources/teachings on this topic. The Catholic church would sanction the marriage, but only if you agree to raise the children as Catholics.Within Catholicism the Church frowns upon it though, because the Church regards parents are principally responsible for the education of their children, consequently, religious instruction and rearing the child in the faith.To better understand this one has to grasp what "sacramental" means in Catholicism and what the nature of the concept of the "Church" is in Catholicism (which differs from the Protestant concept of Church). That's probably more likely that she's less Christian if she is baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith, and I say that going back to my points above.
When a spouse quits her marriage, regardless of the reason, generations suffer.
My liberal feminist mother couldn't take it and we switched to a progressive Methodist church instead, a return to her childhood religious roots.
While I don't feel like I had a particularly religious upbringing, I clearly did. I dumped the idea of a male God and instead prayed to the pagan concept of the Goddess for years.

Christian women are permitted to marry non-Christian men (that's not true in Islam supposedly).
