I will try to just lay out the facts quickly so we can get to the solution:
-Man and woman, neither one baptized at birth, married by Justice of the Peace.
-Several years after marrying, both are baptized in a Lutheran church.
-Several years after that, the wife is confirmed Catholic. Was under the impression nothing needed to be done to “make right” the marriage.
-Now the husband wants to also be confirmed Catholic. RCIA teacher is under the impression they must go through convalidation including premarital counseling of some sort.
-Confusion and upset ensues all around…
What is the verdict? Is the marriage already valid? If not, what must be done?
Thanks immensely for your help.
