- Wedding: March 2009
My husband and I got married (JOP) about two years ago. We dated for around 4 years before that. This year has been a looong year in which my husband has been going through the RCIA program to receive his confirmation this May we will be having a full mass blessing our marriage (May 14, 2011). The Priest explained that the mass will not be any different than a regular wedding Mass. We got married and I am well aware that our marriage is not really a marriage in the eyes of the Catholic Church. So technically we have been living in sin.. right? I know that come lent time (or maybe just before his confirmation) my husband will have to go to confession and whenever it is they make him go I want to go. Now .. if we go to confession we obviously have to confess our intimacy. So if this is before lent we will have to abstain until our wedding day. Problem is I am dying to start TTC. I will be waiting until after May to even start! Has anyone gone through a similar situation? Or if you were in my situation what would you do? I am trying to be a better Catholic.. and this post makes me feel horrible because I am not well informed in this department. Are we just doomed either way!?
