I hope this is posted in the correct area. I figured since it's a topic about marriage, the vocations section would be the best option.
A Baptist couple is married in their church. They're both baptised. A few years down the road they decide to convert to the Catholic Faith. They go through RCIA and are brought into the Church during Easter. They have never been married prior to their marriage.
My question is whether the Catholic Church finds their marriage to be valid? Do they have to get remarried in the Church?
Also, what if instead of the couple being Baptist they were Atheist and were married by a Justice of the Peace?
If you need more information on the scenario just ask.
