A person I know (not Catholic) was married in her own Church and also for the state. Later she divorced before the state but never asked for a divorce before her church (I’m not sure if her church even offers divorces, neither is she, but she won’t rule it out absolutely). The divorce is thus not recognised by her church. Obviously, the Catholic church would recognise her marriage but not her divorce and therefore consider her still married. Is this right? Now presently her ex-husband is very ill and this made me wonder. If he dies, would she then be unmarried in the eyes of the Catholic church? Or would she still be divorced? I’m asking because she has considered becoming Catholic.
