Catholic dating a non denominational

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.

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?I can tell you from my experience, though, that there are a lot of advantages in dating (and marrying) a Catholic.Before I met my husband Brian, I dated guys all over the faith-spectrum – from Catholic gone atheist, to non-practicing Protestant, to Catholic-ish, to Evangelical, and some in between.Differences about faith and the very notion of marriage, but also different religious mentalities, can become sources of tension in marriage, especially as regards the education of children.The temptation to religious indifference can then arise.
