Hi, guys —

I was non-Catholic and married in a civil marriage. I later became a Catholic and raised my children as Catholics.

My husband did not join the Church. He desired a divorce which was granted though the courts.

  • If I meet someone and wanted to remarry, could I get married in the Catholic Church?

Thanks,

Alison

Alison,

You really need to sit down with your pastor and discuss the situation.

In all likelihood you would need a declaration of nullity (an annulment) to remarry, although there may be other options.
