I`m also a Catholic getting married to a Salvationist. We have been married customary for the past three years and now want to get real by getting married as Christains. My church is refusing me the opportunity to get married in the Salvation Army. We had earlier on agreed with my fiance/wife to be, that we get married in the Salvation Army and then go to the Catholic church for a blessing and acceptance to which it was said that we should choose either of the two. She is not prepared to convert to Catholism but she has been attending Mass with me. We agreed in principle that our children will be raised in the Catholic church.
As it is we have compromised all our plans. We have invited about 420people to witness our big day.We have done everything for this day. We do not know who is going to minister our wedding. I have explained the importance of my Catholic Doctrine and she understands it all and the Catholics do not recognise wedding by other denominations. We still talking to our families, the priests and salvation army officers about it. We are not sure of the outcome. If you have any ideas and advice you can offer us please assist. We had scheduled our wedding days as the 3rd and 4th of December 2005. We wanted t start at the Salvation Army on 3rd and then move on the Catholic church on the 4th. All is in place. Please help because I do not know what to do now!
