FI and I have been waiting nearly 2 years for our Catholic annulments to go through. Mine has been granted and we just got the letter yesterday that his is waiting for the second opinion. This means we are one step closer and almost to the point where we can set a date! I’m still holding out hope that we will be able to set the date for October of this year. This has been a long time coming and it’s almost surreal that it’s finally almost finished. I just wanted to share how excited I am to actually start planning our wedding!!

Congrats on the approval letter! I am in a similar boat as you. I have been waiting for 15 months now for my annulment. I called at the beginning of May and I was number 4 to be seen by the judge in the Tribunal for his judgement. How long did it take to get your second approval after the first one was confirmed? I too am hoping to get married in October 🙂 Let me know how it goes in wedding planning in a short amount of time because I will probably need the advice. Congrats again 🙂

Congrats on the letter! I too just received word that my annulment is now at the second court and they have told me it will be about 12 more months! I’m glad it finally made it through the first phase (took 8 months) but the thought of waiting another year sounds awful!
Were you able to fnd a priest that would prepare you prior to the annulment being complete? Standard rule from what I have seen is that you need at least 6 months to prepare, and you can’t start preparing until annulment is 100% complete. This waiting game is SO DIFFICULT! Would appreciate any feedback.

Congratulations! I know the feeling – my boyfriend and I are currently waiting for his to go through so we can get engaged… it’s definitely a difficult wait, but one that is well worth it. Happy planning! 🙂

My question is…SO was previously married 10 years ago by a justice of peace at town hall. Nothing involved with Religion. They were divorced a few months later.
I have always wanted to get married in a Catholic church. Can I ?
