Celibacy and christian dating

The mention in Mark , Luke , and Matthew -15 of Saint Peter's mother-in-law indicates that he had married (Matthew -15: "when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.") According to Clement of Alexandria (Stromata, III, vi, ed.Dindorf, II, 276), Peter was married and had children and his wife suffered martyrdom.

Eastern Catholic Churches either follow the same rules as the Latin Church or require celibacy for bishops while allowing priestly ordination of married men.For a period in the 5th and early 6th centuries the Church of the East did not apply the rule of celibacy even for ordination to the episcopate.Anglicanism and Protestantism in general do not require celibacy of its clergy and allow—or even encourage—clerical marriage.Bishops must be unmarried men or widowers; a married man cannot become a bishop.In Latin Church Catholicism and in some Eastern Catholic Churches, most priests are celibate men.

Moreover, priestly celibacy is held in great honor in the Eastern Churches and many priests have freely chosen it for the sake of the Kingdom of God.
