My husband and I were married outside of the Church in 2013. He is Catholic and I am from a Methodist background but going through RCIA this year (started at the end of last years RCIA class). We did not receive a dispensation to be married outside the Church the first time around and so were invalidly married and thus went through the Convalidation process and were validly married in April earlier this year.
My question is then, would it be wrong for us to celebrate our anniversary on the date of our first ceremony since that was considered a sin? Also, we have lots of wonderful photos which do capture our love for each other from that day that I now feel torn when I look at them… would a faithful Catholic look at them and think why are you displaying photos from the day you turned away from God?
Has anyone else on here faced this question? What would you do?
