Yes, shocking as it may seem today, the Church really has traditionally taught that you should not marry a non-Catholic for one of the same reasons that you should not share Holy Communion with them: doing so debases a Sacrament, falsely expressing a full communion where such does not and can not exist.The pastoral reality of frequent Catholic inter-marriage with Lutherans in Germany has led to recent attempts by the German Bishops to abrogate the Church’s historic proscription of inter-communion, precisely for the sake of Protestant spouses.The Catholic Church does not forbid Catholics from marrying people who are not Catholic.It has been the practice of the Church to marry non-Catholics and Catholics for quite some time.

Do you have any recommendations for trying to feel good about myself when to me it is obvious that who I am is not even attractive to guys that I’ve known for years?Until the late 20th century, Catholic teaching on prospective spouses was well-known: Catholics should marry Catholics, and any union with those outside the Church – a ‘mixed’ or ‘exogamous’ marriage – is gravely contrary to the faith.To marry only another Catholic was even listed as a ‘precept’ of the Faith, as firm an injunction as attending Holy Mass on Sundays.Scripture tells us that the unbelieving spouse is made holy through the believing spouse (1 Cor. Sacramentally in marriage the spouses are the conduits of grace to each other and in a mixed-marriage of disparity of cult the Catholic is a conduit of grace to the non-believer.If this leads to a free conversion of belief by the non-believer then the church rejoices.
