I have a friend who may be considering entering the Catholic Church. He was Baptized in the Episcopalian church, and left due to general agnosticism.
Later in life, he married a Catholic woman, in a Catholic (Latin rite) marriage. They divorced within two years. No annulment.
In recent months he has had an adult return to Christ. We converse on Catholic doctrines, and I want to present the correct procedure for him to come into communion with the church.
Does a non-Catholic need an annulment from a Catholic marriage, to become a Catholic in full communion with the church? As a non-believer at the time (although validly baptized), was he morally culpable in his marriage vows/sacrament. If he becomes a Catholic (on his own free will of course), is there any possiblity he can ever be validly (in eyes of the Church) married again?
I appreciate any response.
