I’m new to the board, read it for a while, thought it was time to ask a question.
I’m seventeen years old, and catholic by birth.
My parents also catholic BUT never got married by the church, just by law
…because at first they said they’re too shy, to do the whole ceremony (walking down aisle)
…now (20+ years later), they say they’d feel dumb doing the ceremony after 20 years of “marriage”
my question is…even if they wanted to…could they get married now?
and does it have to be a private ceremony (because they say thats another part they don’t want, because it would only be 10 people in an empty church watching them get married)
can the priest just do a more quiet thing, or at least do a small thing during a regular mass, kind of like the RCIA people during easter…
this has ALWAYS bothered me, and I’ve always begged them to do it,
