What is the Catholic Church's policy of marriage for deacons? Of course marriage would not be allowed for those deacons who are preparing to be priests.
However, what about for those deacons who are in the position as a lifetime ministry... known as the "permanent deaconate"?
Are men allowed to be ordained as permanent deacons if they are married? Also... are they allowed by the church to get married (or re-married) once they have already become deacons?
