Interfaith marriage refers to a marriage between persons of two different faiths, or between two denominations of the same faith (also called an interdenominational marriage). Some faiths prohibit members from marrying outside of their religion and some require special permission and/or a promise concerning which faith the couple's children will be raised in. In some denominations, those who marry outsiders are stigmatized or even shunned.
