Is a Catholic who married a devorced Protestant still a Catholic?
I didn't get married until I was 59 years old. I met and married a Presbyterian girl who had formerly been married. Twelve years before I met her, she devorced her first husband. Since we were both in our late 50's we certainly didn't want to go through all of the rigamarole involved in being married in the Catholic church so we opted to be married in the Presbyterian church. I really don't want to be a Presbyterian as I was raised Catholic. Am I still a Catholic? Am I allowed to receive the sacriments? Can we both be burried in a Catholic cemetery? Am I going to go to hell on a technicality; that my wife didn't have her first marriage annuled by the Presbyterian church?
