Since 1981 theologians from the Coptic and Orthodox churches have been meeting to resolve differences, and have concluded that many of the differences are caused by the two groups using different terminology to describe the same thing.
In the summer of 2001, the Coptic Orthodox and Greek Orthodox Patriarchates of Alexandria agreed to recognize the sacrament of marriage (and baptisms) of one another.
A Coptic Orthodox person cannot marry any other person from any other christian denomination,but is allowed to marry the person if that person is greek orthodox or belongs to the group of oriental orthodox churches which consist of Coptic Orthodox, Syriac Orthodox, Ethiopian Orthodox, Eritrean Orthodox, Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church (India) and Armenian orthodox Apostolic churches.
No,Coptic Christians are not allowed to marry evengelical,Catholic,Muslim,Jews.etc..Coptic Christians are allowed to Marry Syrian Christian,Ethopian Christian,and sometimes a Greek Christian(It depends what this person believes in)All of these listed above are similar or even the same as the Coptic Orthodox Church.
Yes, according to an agreement reached between the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria and the Coptic Orthodox Church in 2001. Actually, prior to this agreement, a Greek Orthodox person could still have married a Coptic Orthodox person, but for the marriage to be recognized by both Churches it would have had to be performed twice (once in each Church). The agreement obligates each Church to recognize the validity of a marriage performed in the other Church.
Yes, so long as the conversion is genuine. Check with your coptic priest in case of any additional requirements, such as catechism (instructions in the faith).
Yes, A Muslim man can marry a Greek Orthodox woman. However, a Muslim woman can marry only a Muslim man and can not marry a Greek Orthodox man. Refer to question below.
Yes. I am a Catholic who married a Greek Orthodox in the Greek Orthodox church (and no, I did not have to convert first).
Macedonian orthodox like Athenian orthodox and Thessalian, Epirotian, Thracian orthodox can all marry in the Greek Orthodox Church no matter where in Greece they hail from. The foreign church of the Former Yugoslav Republic is a schismatic church and not recognized by the ecumenical patriarchy of Constantinople as an orthodox church. Therefore no Greek, whether Macedonian, Athenian, Thessalian etc can marry in the church of the former Yugoslav Republic but the various ethnicities of the Former Yugoslav Republic who follow their Christian church can marry in a Greek Orthodox Church.
No, a wedding can only be done by an Orthodox priest.
They need to get a pardon from the priest first.
she sure can!
No. It is prohibited to marry in a Greek Orthodox church twice. All members of the Orthodox faith, including the Catholic faith are required by religious laws to never allow second marriage in the church. To religous people, this is commiting adultery. You can't marry twice in the Greek, Eastern, and Russian Orthodox faith and you also can't marry in the Armenian,Roman,and Irish Catholic faith.
In order to be a Orthodox Bishop, you must be celibate.
Most Orthodox churches would allow this, so long as any children are Baptized in the Orthodox Church.
No, an Orthodox person cannot marry in a catholic church at all. The Orthodox church only allows this type of marriage (as an exception/by dispensation) to take place in an Orthodox church.
The Russian Orthodox Church is part of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and is therefore in communion with all the other churches that belong to the Eastern Orthodox Church, such as the Greeks, Serbians, Romanians, etc. The Coptic Orthodox Church is part of the "miaphysite" group of churches, also called "Oriental" or Non-Chalcedonian churches, and is therefore not in communion with the rest of the Orthodox world. The Eastern Orthodox Church, which includes the Russian Orthodox, accepts the decisions of the Seven (or Nine) Ecumenical Councils, however, the Coptic Orthodox Church does not accept all the Ecumenical Councils. This "miaphysite" dispute was over the two equal natures of Christ - human and divine - which the Eastern Orthodox accept, but the miaphysites, such as the Coptic church, only accept the one or "mono" nature of Christ's divine nature which later was a misunderstanding,the Eastern Orthodox communion believe christ has two natures human and divine which are separate while the Coptics believe christ also has two natures human and divine but are united.According to an agreement reached between the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria and the Coptic Orthodox Church in 2001. Actually, prior to this agreement, a Greek Orthodox person could still have married a Coptic Orthodox person, but for the marriage to be recognized by both Churches it would have had to be performed twice (once in each Church). The agreement obligates each Church to recognize the validity of a marriage performed in the other Church.Another View:The Russian Orthodox church is part of the Eastern Orthodox church which consists of Greek,Serbian etc the Coptic Orthodox church is part of the Eastern "Oriental" Orthodox church which consists of Armenian,Syrian,Ethopian etc. They are both Orthodox churches but the Russian orthodox church was granted its own patriach from the Greek Orthodox church founded by St.Andrew and the Coptic Orthodox was founded by St.MarkThey differ in the views of the divinty of christ .Eastern Orthodox believe christ has 2 natures that are separate while the Eastern "Oriental" Orthtodox believe that christ has 2 natures but unitedA misunderstanding that Copts beleived in one nature led th the schism of the east in 451 AD this was seen as a misunderstanding.However both churches are very close and follow Orthodox traditions you won't be able to tell a difference,except in headgear.They are allowed to marry and use each others churches
Yes that is possible.
If you are asking, "Do Greek Orthodox people marry Catholic people?" the answer would have to be, "Sometimes they do." Probably the easiest to recall instance of a Greek Orthodox person marrying a Roman Catholic person is the marriage of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy to Aristotle Onassis.
No. However, a married man can become a deacon, and afterwards a priest. But once a man is already a priest (or deacon), he can not marry or remarry. He must marry before.
only non-catholics can marry. ANSWER 2: The only priests who may not marry are Roman Catholic. The clergy of other sects of Catholicism (ie., Russian & Greek Orthodox) are permitted to marry.
That person must needs to be baptised into the Orthodox Christian Faith before being able to marry in the church.
Unfortunately not, at least not in an Orthodox Church, because they belong to two different religions.
Yes, they can marry up to three times in an Orthodox Church.
Depends what kind of orthodox you mean. Orthodox Jews wouldn't really be getting married in a church. Greek orthodox probably have a Greek Orthodox church. Perhaps a Justice of the Peace is the least controversial route -- this type of service is strictly for legal purposes and leaves out the religion. Muslim man must marry a Christian woman in a church if she wants that.
