My husband and i got married just about 3 years ago in courthouse legal service. We have decided to have our marriage vow’s renewed ( in the churches eyes i guess this is what you would call convaildation) I am technically non-catholic although i plan to offically convert very soon, i have been baptised in a non-catholic church. He is confirmed catholic. My question is this, in order to be married in the Church does every single couple have to go through Pre-Cana? We have 3 months till this happens and are currently living apart due to a deployment with the military. I don’t object to going through the marriage prep…it is just the time limit that we have. He will not be able to get leave from military duties for at least two years to be able to plan this again once we have been through Pre-cana. Are there any exceptions to the Pre-Cana? like due to us being married already and the sepration they would allow us to go through after or something of the sort?
Thanks for all your help i have read just about every catholic book i have and it talks about it but not any special circumstances.
