I have tried to use the search function on this forum, but i haven’t found what i was looking for. I am a catholic engaged to a baptized non-catholic, and we are set to marry next year. I just obtained the booklet explaining the order of the rite of marriage, and I understand we are considered a “mixed marriage”, and therefore I am required to sign a dispensation to promise to do all I can to bring up my children in the Catholic Church. My fiance will not be obligated to sign the same form.
Now, when I was going through the Statement of Intention, namely the part that says “Will you accept children lovingly from God and bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church?”
My fiance has raised the issue that this basically asks her to bring up our children in the Catholic Church as well? Are we reading it correctly? Will the presiding priest omit the words “and his Church” when he asks this question to my fiance?
