Remarriage: Do I Need an Annulment?

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.

Remarriage: How to Include Children in Wedding Ceremony?

I'm divorced with three children, girls ages 16 and 14 and a boy, 10. I'm engaged to a wonderful, supportive man who truly loves me and my kids. I feel it's important to involve the kids in the wedding. My fiance has never been married, and wants a very traditional wedding. (I think I'd much rather elope!) How can we involve the kids directly, without being tacky?
