I am this close to a psychotic break down bees
The FINAL cherry on top of my shitastic week? Turns out we can’t get married in the church after all.
First my father has an affair. Sending off a supernova through my family. Parents being children. His “lady friends” are lawyering up. My fiance’s “friends” tried to cause a wedge between us. His ex tried to rear her ugly head. The dog bit my dad. This has literally been the week from hell.
If the universe wants to crush anymore childhood dreams of mine, now would be the time to do so.

mshoneybeespgbuzz: This sounds like you need a mani-pedi and wine with some of your closest girls then go buy a lush bathbomb and take the best bath ever. With a glass of wine of course. That’s the only advice I can give. Hugs.

That’s awful! I’m so sorry that everything is exploding for you this week– here’s hoping that you can find some time to take care of yourself today, even if the rest of the world is falling apart.

Oh my goodness, I’m sorry!! Why aren’t you able to get married in the church?
Take care of yourself!!! Hugs!

That does sound tough. Is there anything we can do to help you get married in the church?

Unfortunately not. My future husband is not catholic. I am. He deploys 2 weeks after the wedding now. Due to time constraint and his lack of catholichood, we can’t get married in the church, even though we were told differently in the beginning.
Not being married while he’s deployed is out of the question. We will get married. I just have to reconcile the fact I won’t be getting the one thing I want (disclude being married to the man of my dreams).
In the grand scheme of things, it won’t matter. Just kinda sucks.

That does suck. Can your priest marry you elsewhere?

you can do the religious ceremony with the church when he comes back. They do allow that! Big hug.

mshoneybeespgbuzz: I would directly ask why you can’t get married in the Catholic church. My Fiance isn’t Catholic, nor is he any other religion, and the Catholic church we are getting married in had no issue with it as long as one of us was a confirmed Catholic (me) and he agreed that we will be raising our children (should we have any) in the Catholic church and not another denomination.
I’m sorry for everything that is going on and you are having such a bad week. Hugs!!!

Have you talked to your priest about your time constraints? they may be able to override the pre-cana requirment. Also, the Church does allow the sacrament of marriage after a civil ceremony like the previous poster said, so talk to your priest about doing that when he gets back. Lastly, have you talked to the chaplin that is stationed where your SO is stationed? He/She may be able to help you with a Catholic wedding, too.

mshoneybeespgbuzz: A bit late to the party, but could you and your husband get the marriage convalidated after the fact? I realize you wanted to have the wedding in the church, but a convalidation will allow it to still be recognized by the Catholic Church.
