I don't think this would be handled any differently than it is already handeled. If the parents are dead or incapable of providing for/raising a child, then the child is often given to family who are capable or put in an orphanage.

Basically, my argument is to seperate the idea of marriage into a "religious marriage" and a "civil union". All government/business/legal etc things are tied to the civil union. All these entities stay out of the "religious marriage". Let each individual church decide (as they already do) who is worthy of marriage or not.
