... marriage A marriage between baptized Christians of different denominations or of a Christian and an unbaptized person. Always discouraged (cf. 1 Cor. 7: 15), and sometimes prohibited in the history of the Church, mixed marriages are now subject to varied treatment. E. Churches allow mixed marriages only with other Trinitarian Christians, and only with the bp’s dispensation and an Orthodox wedding. Catholics allows a Catholic to marry another Christian or non-Christian, if the parties receive express permission and instruction of the diocesan bp or his...

... marriage . In Judaism, a marriage between a Jew and a gentile . Mixed marriage is forbidden under Jewish law. Therefore, in Jewish law, a mixed marriage has no legal validity. In the case of divorce , no get is required and the wife has no right of maintenance. However, the children of a Jewish woman are regarded as Jewish even if their father is a gentile. The children of Jewish men are not accepted as Jews unless their mother is Jewish (an exception has been made to this in the Reform movement ). Mixed marriage is seen as a very real threat to...

...In the wake of Johnson's marriage, legislatures in ten northern states introduced bills to outlaw mixed marriage. Even though the United States Congress and the courts had long held that the states, not the federal government, had the authority to regulate marriage, between 1909 and 1921 twenty-one laws to outlaw mixed marriage were introduced in the U.S. Congress. In 1912 Georgia Congressman Seaborn Roddenberry responded to Jack Johnson's marriage by proposing that the Constitution be amended to forbid black–white marriages. Roddenberry told his fellow...

..., Mixed Marriage is regulated in the United States by state, not federal, law. Between the 1660s and the 1960s forty-one colonies or states passed laws regulating interracial marriage and sex. People of African descent were uniformly targeted by such laws, which also often prohibited whites from marrying Native Americans and those whose ancestors came from the Indian subcontinent, Asia, or the South Pacific. The history of slavery, emancipation, and the black freedom struggle cannot be understood without reference to interracial sex and marriage. Racially...

...birth rates outside marriage than in the UK can cause difficulties because such children were registered under the mother's name, and the father's name was unrecorded. The father was recorded on his offspring's marriage records, but not the mother. Children of the same parents often had different surnames, depending on whether they were born before or after marriage. As children born before marriage often adopted their father's name, examples can be found where a person's birth was registered under one name, but under another upon marriage and death. Although...

...the sexual innuendo may foreshadow the issue of mixed marriages. v. 12 , the prohibitions against mixed marriage are taken beyond their textual validity ( Deut 7:2–3 ). In none of the older passages prohibiting mixed marriages is there the further command not even to seek the peace of these peoples. Do we have here an argument with the more open legacy of Jeremiah's letter to the exiles in Jer 29 , where the exiles were instructed to ‘seek the šālôm of the city’? A major concern with mixed marriage is the problems of inheritance and the economic...

...resorts to spying, scheming, and acting as a meddling busybody throughout the play. Shakespeare seems therefore intent on systematically undercutting his characters’ ideals so as to show them as painfully human and fallible. Critical History Measure for Measure has always had a mixed critical reception: its moral complexity irritated Johnson but pleased Hazlitt ; the personal shortcomings of its characters alienated Coleridge but moved Ulrici . Twentieth-century critics have replicated this split by reading this comedy as either a problem play (as did...

...main interest is the problem of mixed marriages and consequently of defining the boundaries of Israelite ethnicity. Because some of Judah's leaders, namely, priests, head the list of guilty persons ( Ezra 10.18 ), Ezra may represent an exclusivist faction of Yahwism battling a more assimilationist local priestly or lay-priestly governing faction. Ezra 10.15 describes Jewish leaders as resisting Ezra's orders. Another approach to assessing Ezra's actions against mixed marriage is to consider the marriages as other than a purely religious...

...general difficulty in reconciling understandings of social difference (what did it mean to be poor?) with concepts of sexual difference (what did it mean to be a woman?). And such inconsistency generated new moral concerns, including anxiety that domestic overcrowding improperly mixed sexes and generations. Issues of dependence and independence framed various philanthropic proposals and attempts to reform the poor laws. Schemes to make the poor independent by renting them decent cottages with gardens or allotments became increasingly common after 1815 ....

...Dissolving the Mixed Marriages The first thing that Ezra encounters upon arrival in Jerusalem is the problem of mixed marriage, presented to him by the leaders of the community. In Ezra-Nehemiah ( chs. 9–10 ), attention to this problem seems to overshadow the other aspect of Ezra's activity in Jerusalem, namely the reading of the law ( Neh 8 ). This is even more apparent in 1 Esdras, where the reading of the law is abbreviated ( 9:37–55 ), and the matter of intermarriage occupies the centre of the Ezra narrative. The story of the mixed marriages is presented in...

...the non-Christian partner may not wish to continue a marriage with a spouse whose recent conversion creates tension in the marriage, and in this case Paul recommends allowing divorce for the sake of peace. Nothing here rules out remarriage, though the possibility is not mentioned. v. 16 could be translated in either an optimistic or a pessimistic sense. Optimistically (‘who knows, you might save your spouse’), it undergirds the main thrust of the paragraph, urging a Christian to remain in a mixed marriage (so NRSV; REB; cf. 1 Pet 3:1–2 ). Translated in a...

...popular in Weimar Germany in Hans Rothe ’s free translation ( 1933 ): it has held the stage in Europe since the Second World War in productions such as that of Gundalf Gründgen (Düsseldorf, 1948 ). The play’s post-war fortunes in the English-speaking theatre have been more mixed. At Regent’s Park in 1949 it was heavily abridged by Robert Atkins to share a bill with The Comedy of Errors , but within ten years came two far more lavish, and highly successful, productions at the Old Vic , one (by Denis Carey , transferring to London from Bristol) in...

...of Islamic jurisprudence and teachings. In addition, we find that some jurists, especially during the period of imitation and decline, had, despite their differentiation between legal and religious rulings, discarded such differentiation with regard to other matters. They mixed religion with the daily ways of life and studied Islam as comprising both categories in similar degree. They were, thus, unmindful of the fact that the basis in Islam is the religion and its teachings and that the world and its affairs are only the accessories. Indeed, their...
