Remarriage: Do I Need an Annulment?

by The Knot
Q:

My fiance was previously married in a non-Catholic religious wedding ceremony. He divorced. We are planning on being married in a Catholic church. I have never been married. Will he need an annulment from his previous marriage?

A:

Good question! He likely will, especially because it was a religious ceremony, even if it wasn't Catholic. For a final verdict, the best person to ask is your officiant at your church, who will tell you exactly what you and your fiance need to do.
