My wonderful boyfriend and I are both very strong in our faith…the only issue is that we are not of the same faith. I am a cradle Catholic, and he has been a Baptist all his life and until recently planned on becoming a minister and then Navy Chaplin. However, off and on he would talk about how he doesn’t believe in everything his church teaches, nor mine, but I’m ok with that.
It’s more difficult for others to accept the fact that we have every intention of seeing this thing through (we want to get married some day!) despite our religious differences.
In addition he would mention that he could “go Anglican” someday. Being someone who is spiritually sound in her faith I always took that as a sign that he wasn’t quite sure where he stood in that way. It wasn’t until last night that we were talking and he mentioned that he might want to be an Anglican priest (he still plans on becoming a Chaplin). I wasn’t too surprised. I was very proud though, as I always am of him. It’s a big step to even consider joining another faith and admitting that you might not be in the one you agree with.
Anyway, a long backstory to my question: If/when we get married can we get married in an Anglican church and still have it be recognized by the Catholic Church? If so, how difficult would it be?
Thank you in advance for your comments. I deeply appreciate it. My faith and God, and the man I want to marry some day are the most important things in my life and I will not neglect or sacrifice any of those if I can. God bless!
