Is it a sin for me to attend our Catholic daughter's wedding being performed in a Protestant Church?


#1

My daughter and her fiance don’t want to wait for his annulment before getting married, so they are considering getting married in a protestant church now and later having their union blessed. I know, and they know, that this is against Catholic teaching. Is it a sin for me and my husband to go to this wedding?
