Is there a Halachic problem with being in attendance to an intermarriage preformed in a regular hall meaning not a problematic location? What is the source in the Halachic literature if there is an Issur?

I retagged wedding since I assume you're asking about being present at the wedding (not about being present any old time during the possible decades-long marriage); if I'm misunderstanding your intent, please undo my retagging! –  msh210 Dec 28 '11 at 0:31

No. One cannot attend an intermarriage service.

See TorahWeb for a short hashkafic discussion of this.

I would like to see this opinion in writing but seems the best available currently –  simchastorah Dec 28 '11 at 6:19
Please add more detail and provide a halachic source. –  Binyomin Trager Feb 25 at 1:30
