Making a Marriage: Seeking Unity

This article was published in the January 1994 issue of the Journal.

‘Interchurch marriages are also called ecumenical and “two-church”, and they are distinguishable to a degree from those which involve partners from different churches with both either nominal adherents or one partner committed and practising but not the other (for the present at least).  The important point is that there are no blue-prints; marriages, all marriages, can become afflicted by the blight of idealism, and stunted by a pre-occupation with being normal.  What we must recognise is the experience of a couple saying together, “there are two churches in our marriage and we both want to express that truthfully”.’  Canon Peter Chambers
