It is forbidden to have a second religious ceremony in a different religion or one ceremony performed together by ministers of different religions.However, it is possible to waive the requirement of form (by granting a dispensation), so that for example one ceremony performed by the minister of another religion or a civil magistrate will be sufficient.Interfaith marriage, traditionally called "mixed marriage", is marriage between spouses professing different religions.Although interfaith marriages are most often contracted as civil marriages, in some instances they may be contracted as a religious marriage.Depending on the jurisdiction, Catholic authorities there allow mixed marriages, provided that the necessary documents are obtained, along with the granting of dispensation by both partners' respective churches and the consent of their families.Except in denominations which require conversion of either partner who is not a member, the groom and bride are wed in two rites, despite the prohibition on having a second ceremony.

Yet, some Christian non-Catholics have a Catholic father or mother due to lack of honesty.

In 2009, Portuguese Cardinal Jose Policarpo discouraged Portuguese girls from marrying Muslims, due to the fact that it is sometimes difficult to raise children in the faith after a marriage.

In addition, the Catholic Church recognizes the Pauline privilege, wherein a Catholic may marry an unbaptized previously married person who consents to convert, but only if the unbaptized person's spouse refuses to become a Catholic also (similar to Muslim views on marrying previously-married non-Muslims).

Biblical passages which apparently support intermarriage, such as that of Joseph to Asenath and Ruth to Boaz, were regarded by classical rabbis as having occurred after the non-Jewish spouse had converted.

Orthodox Judaism refuses to accept intermarriage, and tries to avoid facilitating them.

In others, religious tradition opposes interfaith marriage but may allow it in limited circumstances.
