Can I marry someone who is not a Catholic?

Yes, you can marry someone who is not Catholic, but the other person could not be married already. If you want to marry somewhere other than a Catholic church building you would need to discuss that with your priest. Reply Jo March 24, 2013 at 9:08 pm

Does the Catholic Church recognize a non-Catholic divorce?

Third, the Catholic Church definitely recognizes marriages whether they were in or outside of the Catholic Church. Example: When my aunt got engaged, her fiancee was a non-Catholic divorced person. In order for her to marry him, the Church told him he had to get his first marriage annulled. They asked why he got a divorce.

Is my marriage considered a valid marriage in the Catholic Church?

The question was is it considered a valid marriage according to the Catholic Church. Since your wife is Catholic, the answer is no. Interestingly, if you had both been non-Catholic, the Catholic Church would recognize your marriage as valid, should either of you seek to convert in the future. That seems rather unfair to me, but no one asked me!

Does my husband need to convert to the Catholic Church?

Your husband doesn’t need to convert, but for the Church to acknowledge your marriage, you need to get married in the Catholic Church. I don’t really know much about the Episcopalian Services, but you can check with your priest, he can help you.

How can I convert to the Catholic Church without a partner?

Prayer, living with love and integrity, and having good answers when questions arise is the best way forward. Perhaps no challenge for converts is greater than entering the Church without your spouse or close family. Similar is the challenge of being a lifelong Catholic in hopes of your friends and family one day joining you.

What happens if you have been married before in the Catholic Church?

During marriage preparation, you must inform the priest if you have been married before, even in a civil ceremony. Marriage, by definition, is a lifelong union between one man and one woman. The Catholic Church does not recognize, even as a civil marriage, a contracted relationship between two men or two women.

Do both partners have to be Catholic to be sacramentally married?

Both partners do not have to be a Catholic in order to be sacramentally married in the Catholic Church, but both must be baptized Christians (and at least one must be a Catholic).

What should I do if my spouse is not Catholic?

If your spouse is not Catholic, I have some time-tested advice for you: be patient, pray, and set the best example you can as a spouse. (And this advice works equally well for other people close to us.) Patience is a requirement in every good marriage, and that goes double for when you become Catholic but your spouse isn’t.
