I’m sure this subject has been brought up many times on here. Let me explain my predicament:
A friend I have known for nearly 8 years is planning on getting married next summer. His fiance is non-denominational, and his own faith in the Catholic Church is nominal, if at all. He has said, in so many words, that it wouldn’t matter to him if the wedding was not held in the Church. He and I have been through nearly everything together, and we’re almost like brothers for one another. But… he is also cohabiting with the woman he intends to marry, and is infrequent about attending Mass. What is my response to be? I gladly want to stand by my friend on the day he changes his life, but I am not entirely sure of the Church’s standing on such a matter. Please help me out with this, as he is anxious to know what my decision will be.
