My secret’s out over at Faith & Family LIVE! today. :-) Nearly everything about me is Catholic except for, well, my charming, wonderful husband whom I met long ago on the high school mock trial team and was later reunited with shortly after I graduated college.
This topic is near and dear to my heart yet very difficult for me to talk about for various reasons. For one, I make it my goal to always, always build up my marriage and my husband, and I don’t want to come off as being negative about our marital union. Also, I frequently run in Catholic circles (and write for Catholic media!) where everyone else seems to have Catholic spouses. Sometimes it can be lonely; yet, I know I’m not the only one out there who finds herself (or himself) in what is known as a mixed marriage. My column, “One Love, Two Faiths,” offers tips for spouses like me who believe in the graces of the Sacrament of Marriage – whether mixed or not – and never cease in praying for a unity of faith.
I have much to write about on this topic, but “One Love, Two Faiths” really focuses on practical tips for those who do not share a unity of faith with their spouse. I’d love to hear from others who are in a similar situation as well as your tips for handling the disparity of faith. Comments are open over there. Thanks for your support.
