Default Do I need an annulment if my former spouse has died?

I have been thinking about joining the Catholic Church but have a question about annulments. I was married as a teenager (pregnant) and divorced before I was 18. I'm guessing I would need to file ( wording?) for an annulment on that marrige. However I remarried later on and that marriage ended after 13 yrs due to his infidelity. My 2nd husband is now deceased. Would I also need to try for an annulment to that marriage. Thanks so much for your help in this matter.

Default Re: Annulment for a divoced person if their former spouse has died?


Since your second husband is dead, there is no marriage to be annulled. Your first marriage can easily be annulled because you were so young.
