Default Can a Catholic marry a divorced non Catholic?

Would it be a valid marriage if a Catholic marries a divorced non Catholic in a Catholic Church by a Catholic Priest?

Default Re: Can a Catholic marry a divorced non Catholic?

Dear M,

The Catholic Church recognizes the validity of non-Catholic marriages. Before a Catholic may marry a non-Catholic who is divorced, it must be determined that the personís first marriage is not valid and the person is free to marry. In order to accomplish this, it is necessary that one talk to a priest and begin an investigation to see if an annulment is possible.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
