@katlynandshane0209:  

This was kind of us. I grew up Community of Christ (RLDS) and he comes from a pretty Catholic community – everyone goes to Catholic school who can remotely afford it, etc. 

We ended up kind of splitting the differene and was married in the “American Catholic Church”  http://www.franciscanweddings.org

It was expensive – but it was really worth it. I really enjoyed talking to the priest, and he was really sweet and progressive. I would reccomend it for sure because it’s a good compromise because I wasn’t willing to be treated like a second class citizen during my own wedding ceremony, and I don’t agree with a lot of the conservative values preached by the Roman Catholic church, even those that apparently embrace Vatican II. 

Good luck! And Congratulations!

i was baptised and raised in the church of england and my husband is catholic

we got married in the catholic church – a mixed marriage (catholic and christian) as otherwise our marriage wouldn’t be recognised by the catholic church

he had to promise to do everything he could to raise the kids catholic (if we have any) i had to sign that i was aware he’d made that promise (but not promise it too)

we did have to do the pre-cana classes and he needed an extra permission to marry a non catholic but it was fine. we did it as a Destination Wedding in the end and found a priest in cancun.
