My husband and I have divorced and I need to know where I stand in relation to remarriage for the future. I need to know if my previous marriage was valid in the eyes of the church.
At the time of the marriage
I was baptized and confirmed Anglican (although non practicing)
He had been baptized Mormon but also non practicing.
It was a civil ceremony
I converted to catholicism towards the end of my marriage. I spoke to my priest during RI and he believed it could be made valid and it shouldn’t be an impediment to me joining the church.
My husband refused to meet with the priest or do anything that may have been required to make the marriage valid or if it was already valid, sacramental.
It was never clear to me if it was actually valid. It was suggested due to my difficulty with my husband not wanting anything to do with the church to treat it as if it was valid.
Now I want to know does it meet the requirements for a valid marriage or am I free to remarry should that ever become an option?
