If you are a divorced Protestant (both husband and wife were baptized Southern Baptists) seeking to enter a Roman Catholic monastic vocation, what are your options besides getting an annulment?
In other words, can you take on a monastic vocation while having the status of "separated"?
Firstly, you would need to be Catholic and have been in the Church for two or three years before communities will consider you - this is a basic requirement.
For the most part, the answer to your question is generally no - communities will usually require an annulment before they will consider you although I know of one exception.
