For the answer to this question you should refer to the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church, which you will find on the Vatican's website. Following are two of the three paragraphs that deal with the celibacy of priests found within part two, section two, chapter three, article 6 of the catechism: 1579 All the ordained ministers of the Latin Church, with the exception of permanent deacons, are normally chosen from among men of faith who live a celibate life and who intend to remain celibate "for the sake of the kingdom of heaven."70 Called to consecrate themselves with undivided heart to the Lord and to "the affairs of the Lord,"71 they give themselves entirely to God and to men. Celibacy is a sign of this new life to the service of which the Church's minister is consecrated; accepted with a joyous heart celibacy radiantly proclaims the Reign of God.72 1599 In the Latin Church the sacrament of Holy Orders for the presbyterate is normally conferred only on candidates who are ready to embrace celibacy freely and who publicly manifest their intention of staying celibate for the love of God's kingdom and the service of men. See also the New Advent website, which is a Roman Catholic encyclopedia website.

Which Christian faith allows priests to marry?

Most denominations do, but there are some restrictions in the Orthodox Churches and the the majority of the Roman Catholic Church. Parish priests in the Orthodox Church may be married, but to become a bishop usually requires celibacy, which is why many begin holy orders as monks, where celibacy is the norm. In the Roman Catholic church, celibacy is usually required as a vow by Canon Law, but not as an article of faith. Therefore, in parts of the Catholic Church, such as the Maronite and other Eastern-rite catholic churches in communion with the Roman church, married priests are allowed. Similarly, already-married Anglican priests that convert to the Roman Catholic faith can become Catholic priests and remain married but not serve as principal parish priests. There is also no restriction on widdowers becoming Catholic priests ( The parish priest at my former Catholic parish was a widdowed grandfather! )
