Should I attend a pagan wedding?


My friend, he is an atheist, is planning on marrying a practicing witch. They are currently living together. She has three children by another man out of wedlock, is a recovering drug addict, and still an alcoholic. Be that as it may, since she is the only one with any set of religious beliefs they are planning on a Wiccan wedding.

I don’t know what this entails, but as Catholics, can my wife and I attend? I don’t want to push him away as a friend, nor do I want to condone their behavior or this “wedding.”
