A lady that works in my office about a year ago, was separated from her husband and in May 2003 their divorce was finalized. She and her husband were married by the justice of the peace. She has never been raised in any faith nor has she or her children been baptized. Also, last year someone, gave her an email address to a fellow who lives in another state. He happens to be Catholic and seems from what she says to practice his faith.
As they became friends, he decided it was time for him, since he also had been divorced to file for his annulment. This co-worker kept asking me Catholic questions and trying to understand our faith. I told her that she could be a friend to this guy but not to get involved since in the churches eyes he was still a married man.
Now as of Christmas, they are engaged. I keep asking if his annulment is final and she says it is in the works. They have decided to get married in July, I think in her mom’s backyard, since she will be moving to another state with him. She says that once his annulment is through they will get married in the Catholic Church.
I personally don’t agree with this but I have been asked by those in our office if I will be attending the wedding and I really don’t know what to say.
Any insight would be a great help.
