'A fish and a bird
can fall in love,
but where will they build their home?'
from 'Fiddler on the Roof'
It may be a light-hearted question, but it draws attention to a dilemma facing thousands of mixed-faith couples who fall in love across the religious divide. For Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists, there are major questions to be asked over where to marry and how to bring up the children. Sometimes the mix can be positive and enriching; at other times it is explosive and ends in tears.
This perceptive book looks at the factors that have led to a sharp rise in mixed-faith marriages in recent years and examines the issues couples have to confront, from the problem of pacifying relatives to the joys of mixed-faith sex. It is illustrated by the accounts of over a hundred mixed-faith couples, gleaned from Jonathan Romain's extensive counselling experience. Honest about the difficulties but always positive about the solutions, 'Till Faith Do Us Part' is essential reading for anyone interested in the subject.
