Marriage question for a friend


A Catholic friend of mine has started to date feeling God wants her in the vocation of marriage instead of being a Nun as she first thought.

She’s met a Baptist gentleman who she does love however he was married in the Russian Orthodox Church and there no longer together.

She wants to know if the RCC will recognize her boyfriend as still married as he was married in the ROC even though he was never Baptist.
