I have a bit of an interesting and somewhat difficult situation. My wife was raised Catholic and I was baptized in the Protestant church. We married six years ago while I was in graduate school, and at the time, our faith life was not strong. Thus, we opted to marry outside of the Church. Since that time, I have found myself developing a strong inner-calling to pursue my relationship with Christ. In this journey of attending mass nearly every day over the last few months, I am strongly connecting with Catholicism and feel like the Catholic church is where I am being called. The difficulty has come with my wife who has reservations to getting our married convalidated as she is not sure herself that she is being called back to the Church. Obviously, I don't want to make her uncomfortable, yet I am feeling a very strong calling to developing a sacramental life through the church.
From what I understand, the marriage would need to convalidated before I could be confirmed. I was hoping the community might have thoughts for me as we work through this process. Finally, this is my first post to the forum, so thank you for having me!
