I would like to marry my boyfriend in a Catholic church but he is unable to locate his Certificate of Baptism, he is Christian, but not Catholic and he doesn’t know the details of the Baptism as he grew up in the Seychelles and many records were lost there. Do you think this will be a problem?
As an alternative we thought about getting married in the Seychelles and then having a Catholic blessing after - would this be acceptable?
I don’t know what to do - we have been in love for 27 years, we both married (in a registry office) and divorced someone else which doesn’t count in the eyes of the Church and I so desperately want to do it properly this time as he is the love of my life. I am 45, not a silly teenager.
Please, does anyone have any advice.
