I hope this is in the right forum.
I have a unique situation. My wife and I (and our children) have recently made the decision to go through the RCIA process when it begins at our parish in September. My question surrounds our multiple marriages.
We have been married a total of 4 times, every time to each other. Neither of us has ever been married to anyone else. Without going into a long personal history, we got married for the first time at 19 and needless to say, were not mature enough for such a step. The next two marriages occurred at ages 21 and 26, I believe. The subsequent divorces were a result both of maturity issues and my wife’s (untreated) mental illness. The last marriage occurred in Dec of 2013. I find all of this to be very embarrassing personally, but I will say that in our staying together for this long I know that I am with the love of my life and could not imagine being without her.
During this time, we cohabitated for all of it with the exception of 3 months. If it is of any consequence we also have two children together.
My concern is how/if this will be an impediment to the RCIA process and what, if any steps, would need to be taken to remedy the situation? I just want to make sure I enter the Church correctly.
I was baptized Southern Baptist in 2008. My wife has never been baptized in any faith.
