My wife and I are inquirers and were planning on taking RCIA this fall. We met with our deacon and discussed our intentions of conversion and some of our impediments, namely our previous marriages.
We both are divorced and were never baptized Christians as well as our previous spouses were never baptized. We were told that we could try to have our previous marriages dissolved using the Pauline Privilege.
Here is the sticky part and my question. My wife is now saying that she does not want to convert and will not participate in the Tribunal process for her previous marriage.
I still want to convert. I attend mass every Sunday, am planning on taking the RCIA classes when they start and want to proceed with my previous marriage dissolution.
Is my spouse’s refusal to get her marriage dissolved and her reluctance to be baptized going to be an impediment to me getting baptized and become in full communion?
