I have begun the annulment process for my first marriage.
My “forever” husband and I were married 8 years ago, in an Episcopalian rite.
He is a “cradle Catholic” who fell away before his confirmation. I was, until recently, a “non-denominational,” non-churchgoing Protestant, but was baptized correctly. We are going to attend the RCIA classes this fall. I had thought this was necessary for me to be confirmed. Reading this forum has told me that it is not.
Our priest has told me that, as long as we are not confirmed yet, we are not living in sin, since our civil marriage is valid.
Help - I’m confused. Is our priest right?
More importantly, is it sinful to delay being confirmed until my first marriage is annulled? (assuming we meet the requirements otherwise.)
Thank you; you are in my prayers.
Ruthie, coming home
