mixed religion

A hindering impediment to matrimony, consisting in the marriage of a Catholic to a baptized non-Catholic. Such a marriage is valid if performed by proper authority, but it requires a dispensation, which is given only after the signing of promises by the non-Catholic party, pledging non-interference with the religion of the Catholic, rearing the children in the Catholic faith, and only one ceremony of marriage, before a priest.
