- Wedding: October 2012
I am Catholic, Fiance is Church of Christ (apparently not to be confused with the more liberal United Church of Christ). Neither one of us is practicing, partially out of sheer scheduling issues/busyness (i know that’s really terrible, right?) but partially becuase he doesn’t agree with the Catholism’s beliefs and frankly his church is so different and foreign to me that I don’t see myself ever feeling like a part of that community. But we both believe in God and both agree that it’s very important to raise our future children Christian.
I would really iike to get married in a Catholic church, and he’s totally ok with being married by a Catholic priest, but I have a few questions that maybe someone who has recently gone through this whole process can help with. How difficult is it to get married in a Catholic church but have a priest AND a Protestant minister officiate? Do most Catholic churches allow this sort of thing? To the Catholic bees: I’m also bit worried about what is going to happen during the pre-cana. What do they ask about? Does it ever get really direct and personal like “are you two having premarital sex”? Can they say no to marrying us or is it more of a formalitiy?
Any advice would be extremely helpful. Thanks in advance!
