ceremony as part of your heritage?
6. Are you planning to have children? How would you bring them up? In which religion? Both religions?
7. Speak up - ask questions of each other, of us, and of all those involved with your special day.
8. Understand that there are few prohibitions against Interfaith marriages in the major religions of the world.
9. Interfaith couples bring greater attention to their marriages than most couples who share their same beliefs.
