annulmentgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread
Thank you Glen and John for answering. More details.... my husband was Catholic at the time we married. He didn't get permission from the Bishop to marry outside of the Church. In 1983 we married in the Methodist Church. In 1991 I converted to Catholic Church (THE best decision of my life). Also in 1991, my husband had his first marriage annuled, just prior to my becoming Catholic. In 1993, because my husband wanted to, we "renewed our vows" in the Catholic Church. Do I need an annulment or is this invalid from the start because of his being Catholic and not having permission from the Bishop. I'm confused.
Thank you for your help! Emily

With your newly supplied answers, I will definitely have to ask John to follow up. The renewed vows worries me. I am not sure if this is a recognizing of the Catholic Church of your marriage.

Dear Emily and Glenn,
I am getting confused by the fact that this matter is split over two separate threads. I am going to copy the above two messages to the bottom of the original thread, rather than reply here. I hope that you won't mind.
