My fiance and I both were born and raised in the catholic church. We both were baptized but not confirmed. He was confirmed but in the 8th grade i thought it was “dumb” to have to have to be confirmed in order to be catholic….So i was never confirmed. Does this create a problem with us marrying in the Catholic church? We are planning on doing the pre cana classes within the next year—will this issue come up? Your thoughts are appreciated!

You do not need to be confirmed to get married in the Catholic Church.

I would speak with the church you are getting married in. From my understanding is it a requirement to complete the sacrament of confirmation, but not all churches are as strict as others on that. Your church will be able to answer that for you and if it is in fact something you need, they’ll help you get it done so you can get married. 🙂

My Fiance isn’t even baptized & we’re getting married in the Church…but I am Confirmed & I think it’s a requirement that, for you (plural you) to get married in the Church, one of you has to have completed all the sacraments up to marriage. To ditto @Lillindy, check with your parish priest…I know that our pastor (head parish priest) would kindly, but persuasively, try to convince you to get Confirmed so that you can receive the sacrament of Marriage along with your Fiance. If this is the case, don’t fret…the RCIA (adult Confirmation class) at my church (& most parishes) runs from September to Easter (April), which is well before your wedding next year. So if you’re interested, or if your parish requires it, you can still accomplish it before your wedding. Whichever you decide, good luck & God be with you!
