Divorced Protestant marrying in Catholic Churchgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread
My protestant (Dutch reform) boyfriend (formally engaged since with family ceremony since 1999) and I wish to marry in May, 2003. He was previously married to a woman for 8 years and was married by a justice of the peace in Italy. He just obtained his divorce and we wish to marry in a Catholic church and educate our eventual children in the Catholic faith. We had to wait almost four years for the divorce to go through in Italy, and his first wife had serious mental instability and did not disclose to him her dislike of children. Since he is not Catholic nor was married within a religious ceremony, may we proceed with our plans as a "first marriage" for both of us? We are both in our late 30s and desire a family. Is there any paperwork he needs to obtain before proceeding?
Thank you for any input! Ann
