I have no idea — I’d ask the priest, or the marriage clerk, or someone in a position to best know the answers, though.

I have a feeling the priest will want your Maid/Matron of Honor and best man signing papers witnessing the wedding at the church.  Honestly, I have no clue.  You would need to speak to your priest.  Have you had your first meeting with the priest yet??

sadatquoraishi:  if you flat out admit your atheist you will not be authorized to have a wedding in the Catholic Church…

I think you have a lot more to worry about than the logistics of your wedding day.

sadatquoraishi:  I beliebe the part about the children applies to couples whom one partner is a Protestant not a non-believer. They also may have you both do precanta classes which is typical.

sadatquoraishi:  yes I would talk to him and see what can be done. I dont think the legal paperwork should be a problem imo… I would be slightly in your same situation, but I just said forget it and let’s get married on the beach. Please keep me updated as I am curious bc my fiancé pretty much states he is a non believer and I wouldn’t mind knowing what the church says incase I change my mind and want the rite.

I think you should be fine and in regards to what the other bees wrote, I took my pre-cana lessons and certain couples were interfaith and/or with non-believers and that was not an issue in regards to marrying in the church just as long as any kids born of the marriage are raised Catholic.
