This single sentence, plucked from 3,264 of PeterII's posts, is the wisest thing he's ever posted.

You should be in pursuit of virtue, not membership.  That said, it's better to marry a Catholic than constantly fear for your wife's damnation (of course, being Catholic doesn't mean you're automatically heaven bound, but some rows are easier to hoe than others)..

I used to think this way, but I don't anymore. At this point in my life I just can't fathom marrying a non-Catholic.  I want to marry someone with who I can grow in the faith with, not someone who might be a stumbling block.  I am not saying a virtuous Protestant is a horrible person, but at the end of the day they're Protetsant.  It's doubtful they will want to come to mass with you, and if they do they'll probably expect you to attend their services.  You probably won't have an easy time praying together.  And how will she be able to instruct your children in the faith?

I hope I am not coming across as sanctimonious,  But, my faith is very important to me and I can't imagine spending the rest of my life with someone who doesn't share the same faith.
