Our family has been invited to a baby’s baptism whose parents are not married. The mother of the baby is Catholic.
My question is: Have the requirerements changed OR has it always been that children of unmarried parents can be baptized?
I am all for baptizing the baby. After all, it’s not the baby’s fault that the parents are not married. But then unless the parents are sincere to lead the Catholic life, how can Baptism of their child precede the Sacrament of Marriage?
I am confused. Any good answers? Thank you.
