Fiancee (Male): He has been married twice before. First Marriage was in a Christian Church (Non-Catholic). He was married for 10 years and had no children. He divorced civilly. Second marriage was a civil union with a Catholic. He has two children from that marriage. Legally, he was also married 10 years, although the last 3-4 years they lived in the same home, but in separate rooms and lived separate lives. No marital intimacy occurred in that time. He was unbaptized during both marriages.
Now, we have been living together for almost 2 years and will be marrying soon (preferably in the Catholic Church). My fiancee requested and was granted an annulment around Thanksgiving last year. He completed his RCIA this year and received :highprayer: the baptismal :getholy:, reconciliation :gopray2: and communion sacraments :signofcross:.
Myself: I am a Cradle Catholic. I was married for about 5 years to a Catholic and have a daughter from that marriage. I also requested and was granted an annulment around Thanksgiving last year.
1) Does he need an annulment for his first marriage even though she was not Catholic and he was unbaptized also a Non-Catholic?
2) If so, would that have made his second marriage automatically null and void?
3) If the second marriage is indeed considered invalid…What does that mean as for the legitimacy of his children?
Basically, our main concern is if we are able to proceed with a Catholic wedding given our current circumstances or is he required to seek another annulment.
