I posted this question in the General Forum, but it was suggested that I post it here, as well.
[quote=dust]My sister spent many years in a promiscuous and abusive life-style. 5 years ago, she became reconciled to God, and converted to Catholicism. She is a different woman, thanks to God’s grace, working in her life. My problem is this: during her former lifestyle, she married a man (second marriage for both) in a courthouse. She’s since received an annulment for her first marriage, but her current husband still does not have an annulment, although they have filed. Apparently, he can’t find anyone who will write a witness statement. Still, they are living in a state of adultery, since they have not received the Sacrament of Matrimony in the Church. She does not receive the Holy Eucharist, per her priest’s instructions, and her husband doesn’t either…although he doesn’t really go to church very often.
Now, my husband and I have bought a vacation home in VA, and I invited them to come stay…and there’s the rub.
I cannot allow them to sleep in the same bedroom, in my home, can I?
I really need some info. on this, because I will tell her that they have to sleep separately, if necessary.
JMJ, pray for us.
