marriage QUESTION from Tim Wulf on September 1, 2002 Hi,
when my fiancee and i are getting married in front of a judge now can we get married again in a catholic church after a year ? i hope you can answer this question for me
thank you Tim Wulf
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on September 6, 2002 Dear Mr. Wulf:
Why not get married appropriately?
Unless there is some emergency issue that is approved by your pastor, you commit sin to marriage outside of the Church.
IF you are repentent of that sin, you can have the marriage blessed in the Church, but I would question the sincerity of your repentence since you are planning this in advance.
Do it right from the beginning. Starting a marriage by sinning is not the way to go.
