First off, I want to say this is an awesome site! I have browsed for a few months now and finally just joined tonight. Let me share my situation with you.
I married several years ago outside of the Catholic church. I was Baptised in the church but never confirmed…
We then divorced. I then met my husband now and due to a stubborn X and inpatience on our part we married outside of the Catholic church instead of getting the first marriage annulled. We now have been married 10.5 years and are in a wonderful relationship other then wanting to go back to the Catholic faith. My current husband, up until our marriage was a practicing Catholic. I was baptised, but never attended church on a regular basis. I guess what I am asking is, at this point in our lives and marriage, would I still need to get a consent from my x husband and if not, would forms need to go out to be filled out to the people who knew us in the marriage? I think I eventually want to join the church, and if so, what would I be required to do to do so? Also, if we get the marriage thing taken care of and even if I don’t join the church right away, would my husband then be able to participate in mass by receiving the host/wine?
Thank you so much for your kindness and thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my questions.
