I am a Christian in India who recently got converted from Hinduism. I am in love with a woman who's a Hindu. I was thinking about marrying her in the Church I am a member of, but she pointed out that the marriage might not be possible since Churches in India allowed marriages between Christians only. However, I was going through the Indian Christian Marriage Act of 1872 and I noticed that this particular marriage act was applicable even for a marriage where at least one party was Christian. Now she doesn't want to convert and I don't want her to convert just for the sake of marriage. So I have the following questions:
- Can I marry her under Indian Christian Marriage Act or is Special Marriage Act the only option?
- My whole family is Hindu and I am the only convert. Will that be a problem for my marriage if I'm allowed to marry under Indian Christian Marriage Act?
- What will be the religion of our kid according to the law in India?
Thanks for your time
