Abstract

Interfaith marriage is a strong indicator as to whether a particular group is fully integrated into and accepted by the mainstream community. It is an eschatological vocation for today. As the desire to marry or be committed to a sacred relationship is being questioned, interfaith marriage challenges not only the rationalisation of marriage as a commodity to be consumed and enjoyed, but also national and cultural tendencies of totality and self-interest.
