However, in order for such marriages to be valid under Catholic Church law, the following requirements must be met:
1. The couples must get a permission from the Bishop of the Catholic diocese where the wedding will be held.
2. The Catholic and the other person's wedding must take place in a Catholic Church.
3. The couple must educate and raise their children as Catholics as a result of their marriage.
The foregoing prerequisites exist because the church want to safeguard the Catholic Church's soul by ensuring that the partner who is not a Catholic understands Catholicism's doctrines and principles.
Furthermore, conditions are put in place to ensure that such marriages are valid.
