Church Weddings: Remarriage in the Catholic Church?

Q:

The most wonderful man has asked me to marry him! He is kind, considerate, and Catholic. He is also divorced. In order to be married in a church (which I fully intend to do), what are the necessary proceedings?

A:

It's wonderful that you've found your dream guy! However, if you're adamant on marrying in a Roman Catholic Church, your honey must have an annulment from his first wife (if she's alive). This can be a sticky situation, so discuss it with your fiancé and find out how he feels about seeking an annulment. If neither he nor his ex-wife object, you're home free. But the process can be long and complicated – better start the paperwork now.
