Căsătoria mixtă – punct de trecere a „frontierei” comunitare (a doua jumătate a secolului XIX - debutul secolului XX)
[Mixed Marrige – a Passing Point of the Community “frontier” (second haft of the 19th century - beginning of the 20th)]
Mixed marriage is one of the factors providing the link between interethnic and interreligious communities. Ethnic and confessional diversity of the population imposes a communication, an interference of different ethno-confessional communities. As these communities were living together, it was natural that this “cooperation” should be visible in the case of marriage. Given the context, mixed marriages acquired an innate multiculturalism due to the need for living together. The “social barriers” completed the ethnic and confessional differences. The State becoming more and more powerful in time imposed itself and promoted a new perception of mixed marriage through a lay legislation. On the other hand, in the mixed Greek-Catholic and Roman-Catholic communities, inter-confessional marriages were more easily accepted officially as both confessions were under the same hierarchic authority, the Pope. It is important to get a glimpse of the ethnic structures and their dynamics, as well as of the confessional realities to have a clear image in the analysis of interethnic or inter-confessional marriages. Marriage may be one of the social mechanisms to change the demographic volume of certain communities not only quantitatively, but also qualitatively, and to alter traditional spiritual values.
