I have been married to a Protestant for forty four years a lot longer than many same faith couples , I also find your comments insulting and very stereotypical.if theres no glue in a marriage it won't work no matter what faith they are .Many Good Catholics and Protestants who opposed our marriage and stuck their noses in throughout are now on their second,third,and fourth "relationships"every couple is different no "one size fits all"
Whether my comments are insulting or not is a matter of opinion, however, like yours, mine are based on experience also. I dated a girl for a while that described herself as Christian, although her and her family hadn't set foot in a church in 10 years by that point. She couldn't understand why I ever converted or why I would've wanted to leave a "perfectly good religion" for one that wasn't. She wondered why priests had to always wear those vestments, why there was so much singing at Mass, why we used incense (this was around Christmas), and why we had communion every Sunday.
She worried about my salvation because I was Catholic and not of her "religion." She thought not eating meat on Fridays during Lent was "silly." She said her if her father ever saw a Catechism in his house he'd throw it away.
So you can excuse me for not thinking that couples of different religions if both are ostensibly Christian should be together and that it might be better if they shared the same beliefs.
