What is church teaching regarding the marriage of two non christians, who subsequent to that marriage have one of the parties convert to the Catholic faith ? Is the marriage recognized in the eyes of the church as valid ?
Likewise what if two non christians marry and divorce and then one joins the Catholic church. Is that non christian marriage by two non christians an impediment to a subsequent Catholic wedding ?
Everything I run into online deals with conversion of Christians from various protestant groups or mixed marriage. I’m interested in general info about marriages where neither is even remotely christian and how that relates.
