May I date a divorced protestant?


Is it permisable to date a divorced protestant.


Dear Michael,

Since it has not been proven that the marriage of the Protestant is invalid, that marriage must be presumed to be valid. It is sinful to date someone else’s spouse. It is possible for Protestants to have their marriages annuled through the Catholic Church.
