I wish to be married as a Catholic in about 7 months. Everything is still up in the air, with the planning. But I have a few questions, concerning obstacles that may prevent me from being married within the Catholic church. I am unsure, if these are even problems, but even verification, would be better than the unknowing.
- I am married, already legally through the state. I want to be married in the Catholic church, to be recognized as a Catholic union.
- I have a child that was conceived out of wedlock. With my husband, I now have, however.
- My parish is out- of- state. And I’ve been out of state for years (military).
- My husband is a practicing Catholic, but not a baptized Catholic.
Can anyone give me guidance to these possible problems, and push me in the right direction, so I may fulfill my own wish and be married as a Catholic. ???
