Interfaith Marriage in America: Transforming Religion and Families

Interfaith marriages are on the rise in the United States, with some sources estimating that they make up as much as 45 percent of marriages. Two experts on the subject—Erika Seamon, author of Interfaith Marriage in America: The Transformation of Religion and Christianity (2012), and Susan Katz Miller, author of Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family (2013)—discussed their research on interfaith marriages, the potential benefits and challenges of these unions, and their predictions on the future of interfaith cooperation. Several Georgetown students also shared their personal experiences of being in interfaith families or relationships.
