Yes, you could marry in the Catholic Church (hopefully you wouldn't want to "marry" anywhere else), You would have to declare that this marriage would not constitute a danger to your Catholic faith, and you would also have to state that you will do everything in your power to raise your children in the Catholic faith. He would not have to make such promises himself, but he would have to be made aware that your marriage to him depends upon your making these promises. Hopefully he would be willing to support you in these matters.

Yes you can marry a Baptist. You can even marry in the Catholic Church. however, you will have to be re-married in the Baptist church because the Catholic Wedding was invalid for one reason or another. You will have to be re-baptized because they will not recognize the Catholic one. You will have to be re-educated on the faith because the Catholic church is evil. OH yeah, you don't have to worrie about confession or the eucharist anymore...Baptists don't believe in that. They do believe in Eph 5:22 - "Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord." {end of statement}. We will miss you in the Catholic Church and we will be here when you come back (if he lets you).

I do wish you the best for your marriage. If you want to hold to your Catholic Faith, you have to put your foot down now and let your finacee' know right from the start. Baptists (as a whole) are not very Catholic Friendly.

Blessings for your furure.
