Catholic church and dating
It does not recognize, even as a civil marriage, a contracted relationship between persons of the same gender.
When joining a Catholic dating site or any site for that matter, it is a must to be positive and honest all the time.To have this dispensation granted: Of course there are a myriad of other important questions that need to be discussed in a mixed marriage, but these are the Non-Negotiable ones, and the ones that will require assistance from your local priest and/or bishop to help you resolve.Although it’s not always the most comfortable conversation topic, religion can matter in dating.Too often when our feelings get involved we are willing to compromise on things that shouldn’t be compromised. There are some wonderful men and women out there who have been divorced, some multiple times, who you may want to marry, but unless their marriage has been granted nullity by the Church, you can’t marry them and have it recognized as legitimate.Therefore, again, ask these questions before things go too far. Many states already prohibit intermarriage between close relatives, but in the case of first cousins you would need a dispensation from the Church to marry that person, as it is strongly discouraged. The process of having the Catholic Church examine whether your previous marriage(s) was/were valid isn’t difficult at all, but what you want to make sure is that your person of interest is willing to go through the process to possibly have their previous marriage(s) annulled.
