Guide for marriage

The Protestant Church in Hessen and Nassau in Germany issued guidelines to help clergy with interfaith marriage ceremonies.

Ulrike Schweiger, Protestant pastor for Hoechst am Main, has led two such ceremonies in her community, where 40 percent of the population is Muslim and 15 percent Protestant.

She said clergy requested the guidelines, adding, "It's a complicated subject for pastors ... [this gives] them concrete help for the practical considerations."
