My wife and I were married 30-odd years ago, by a priest, in a Catholic church. We were young and didn’t know or think about it at the time, but my wife was not baptised. She became Catholic several years later (praise God!) - she was baptised at the same time our first child was baptised (in a Catholic church). I am a cradle-Catholic.
I now understand there is a requirement for both parties to be baptised. I’m surprised neither the priest who celebrated our marriage, nor the priest who subsequently baptised her (knowing we were married) didn’t raise this as an issue.
I would appreciate knowing if this is “an issue” in anyway.
- Is our marriage valid in the eyes of the Church?
- Is it a “sacramental” marriage?
- Does it need to be “corrected” in any way?
Thanking you in advance!
