Dear Brothers and Sisters.
I searched the forum for a similar question yet couldn’t find one so apologise if it has already been covered.
I am a Catholic and currently in a relationship with an unbaptised woman (long story but I won’t go into that right now). Praise God that she is responding to the Gospel and with his continued grace I hope someday she will join his true Church.
Years ago she was in another relationship/marriage with a Muslim man. She ‘converted’ to Islam for the sake of marriage. She was never married civilly, only through a local Mosque. They separated many years ago and since then she doesn’t identify as any religion.
My question is about her previous marriage and if it would effect us should she become Catholic and we wish to get married? I have a limited understanding of the Church’s teaching on this. I understand it could be considered a natural marriage but not a supernatural marriage.
In the end if she gets baptised and becomes a Catholic would we be able to marry?
Appreciate your help and advice. Thank you.
