So if you marry a catholic you're excluded?

In Belgium you were excluded if you married a Dutch royal but that law has been abolished recently.

BTW it's strange that catholics are excluded from the throne sine Anglicanism is much more like catholicism than protestantism.

The next in line is William, not Andrew. As long as William is old enough to be king, I don't see why the throne would go to Andrew. Andrew is only 4th in line, as you can see.
