I am currently attending RCIA Classes with my Husband with a hope of being received into the Catholic Church . This is the 2nd marriage for both of us .
We started the process of having our first marriages annulled in April this year . I have produced 2 witnesses, they have given their statements and I have been told that the evidence is now complete and it will progress to the next stage .
My Husband has provided 1 witness , they have given their evidence , but has been unable to provide a second witness . His first marriage was over 20 years ago, he has absolutely no contact with his first wife and has moved from the area … I am assuming now that this is the end of the road for us now, and we will not be able to be received .
I cannot put into words how upset and disappointed I am , although I do understand the Marriage is a Sacrament and that correct procedures have to be followed to the letter .
Please can anyone offer me any words of comfort or advice ?
