Pernikahan "intra-religi": Kristen Protestan dan Katolik Roma

Jessica Elizabeth Abraham

Abstract


ABSTRACT: While Christian teaching on marriage between a believer and an unbeliever is clear, the one between couples from different church traditions is not as straightforward. Although sharing several core beliefs, the differences that exist between the Protestant Church and the Roman Catholics are too real to be ignored. Besides, ignoring them may result in complications and conflicts in marriage life later. The research method used in this writing, which is a qualitative literature study, finds that there are several factors to be satisfied to build a strong marriage. This writing hopes to assist Protestant and Roman Catholic couples to assess their decision to get married by raising their awareness of some relevant differences between the two churches tradition. This writing will discuss the pillars of strong marriage, differences and similarities between Protestant and Roman Catholic teachings as well as some underlying conditions to be met to make a strong union between the two.

ABSTRAK: Ajaran Kristen tentang pernikahan antara orang percaya dan orang yang tidak percaya cukuplah jelas. Namun, pandangan Kristen tentang pernikahan pasangan yang berasal dari dua tradisi gereja yang berbeda tidaklah demikian. Meskipun memiliki beberapa kepercayaan inti yang sama, namun perbedaan yang ada di antara gereja Kristen Protestan dan Katolik Roma terlalu nyata untuk diabaikan. Lagipula, apabila diabaikan, perbedaan ini dapat mengakibatkan timbulnya masalah dan konflik di dalam rumah tangga kelak. Penelitian yang digunakan dalam penulisan ini, yaitu metode kualitatif studi pustaka, menemukan bahwa ada faktor yang harus dipenuhi agar sebuah pernikahan dapat dibangun dengan kokoh. Tulisan ini diharapkan dapat membantu pasangan dari latar belakang Kristen Protestan dan Katolik Roma untuk mempertimbangkan keputusan mereka untuk menikah dengan meningkatkan kesadaran mereka akan beberapa perbedaan yang relevan antara kedua tradisi gereja. Tulisan ini akan membahas tentang pilar pernikahan yang kokoh, perbedaan dan persamaan antara ajaran Protestan dan Katolik Roma serta beberapa syarat mendasar yang harus dipenuhi untuk menyatukan keduanya.
