Since I was unbaptized when I married, is my marriage valid?


#1

I was married in the Catholic Church in 1990, I was not baptised at the time. Does this mean my marriage would not be valid?

Hi,

If one of the parties is not baptized, the marriage is valid, but it is not a sacrament. If the unbaptized person is later baptized, the marriage automatically becomes a sacrament.
