This is my only marriage. I have never been divorced and my husband is Catholic.
The only reason I posted here is because I am confused but it all and was looking for some insight. I just got a phone call about it today about it and we will discuss Sunday when I see them. I guess I'm just looking to see if anyone has ever experienced this or heard of a similar situation.
What is probably the issue is that your husband is a Baptized Catholic, but he was not married in the church, which means the church does not automatically recognize the marriage as valid. This would need to be resolved before the Church will Baptize you or offer the other Sacraments.
I can't speak for other parishes or dioceses, but in mine, usually the process to have a such a marriage convalidated (recognized) by the Church is pretty straightforward and quick in cases where there are no previous marriages. We have one gentleman in a similar situation to yours in our RCIA class this year, but we expect it will be resolved in time for the Easter Vigil.
So it's not a super-common situation, but it does happen now and then. The Church recognizes marriages between non-Catholics as valid (whether it be in a religious ceremony or at a justice of the peace), but Baptized Catholics need to be married in the Church (or receive a dispensation to marry elsewhere). So that's what makes this situation a bit different -- that your husband is Catholic.
I hope this clears things up a bit for you. Your RCIA team should be able to give you all the details. God bless, and best wishes on your RCIA journey!
