Hello, I am new here. I’ve tried searching this topic but can’t seem to find someone in a similar situation.
My husband and I were married 5 years ago in a civil ceremony by a justice of the peace. I was baptized in a United Church of Christ and then received communion and confirmation at 15 in the Catholic Church. My parents didn’t really raise me Catholic and it was my own choice to become one. (However my mom was raised Catholic.) I thought that I couldn’t be married in the Catholic Church because my DH wasn’t Catholic. I’ve now learned that there is a convalidation ceremony.
My husband is an unbaptized agnostic but has agreed to raise our children Catholic. We have two daughters (2.5 and 3.5 months). I attend mass weekly but don’t take communion.
After talking it through, he agreed to have our marriage convalidated as long as he doesn’t have to be baptized.
Is it even possible to have our marriage convalidated in the Catholic Church? I am happy that he has agreed to this but I’m wondering if it is even possible now. I do plan to call my church next week.
