As the managing editor of a Catholic dating site, I see three big problems in the dating world …. The single people of faith that I know, especially Catholics, want someone who will be in it for the long run — marriage for life — with all the sacrifice it entails. And they want this to be on the table from the very start. I have found that in big single Catholic circles people are so aware of commitment that asking someone on a date is sometimes perceived as akin to a marriage proposal. The only explanation I can think of for this scenario is that Catholic culture has tried to swing so far away from the secular world of hook-ups and serial one night stands that it has found itself in a weird commitment-heavy wasteland, where single Catholics are stuck forever chatting in group settings with nary a chance of a one-on-one date until both are assured the other is very interested.

Technically, you only need permission, not a dispensation, to marry a Protestant Christian. To obtain permission to marry a non-Catholic baptized Christian , the following conditions must be fulfilled: 1 You declare that you are prepared to remove dangers of defecting from the faith; 2 you make a sincere promise to do all in your power so that all offspring are baptized and brought up in the Catholic Church; 3 the other party is to be informed at an appropriate time about the promises which you are to make, in such a way that it is certain that he or she is truly aware of the promise and your obligation; and 4 both parties are to be instructed about the purposes and essential properties of marriage which neither of the contracting parties is to exclude.
