Question 172

What if somebody was Christian and they wanted to marry somebody from Islam. In which ways could this happen traditionally without changing anybodys religion? Obviously a legal wedding is an option.

 

Answer to Question 172

 

The civil wedding is the only option because the church would not even consider such a marriage unless the person accepts baptism.
