Can I convert to Catholicism if I am married to a Protestant?

This is my first post. I have always been draw to the Catholic church but I was raised Protestant and am married to a Protestant. It is a first and only marriage for both of us and we have three children. Neither of us are baptised. I wish to convert to the Catholic church. Can I? Even if my husband doesn’t want to convert?


Certainly, you may. Many have! Welcome. You are in our prayers!
