The Catholic Church Said I Can't Remarry Because I Was Once Married by Daddybee: 3:37pm On Sep 02, 2015
It is true I was married. That was on April 15th 2000 and my ex was a twin which affected our Union to a very large extent. We have 3 kids, 2 boys and a girl. I had my inadequacies just like her but twice she packed out of our house without even notifying any of my relatives. I was infected with necrotizing fasciitis while she left the last time in 2010 and spent 3 months in LASUTH but she never visited me. Just last year I started a relationship with another woman who happens to be a widow but after almost 2 years the Catholic Church says we can't be married because I still have a wife....the mother of my children that left since September 2008. I love my new woman but the church said we can't be married. What do I do?

Divorce her first before thinking of getting married..but even if u divorce her and get married to another it is still a sin of adultery..

Must you wed in a church? Go pay her dowry and perform other traditional rites and move on with your new wife. You can as well do a court wedding. Wedding na wedding.

following biblical injunction, you didnt divorce your wife or she did not die. therefore, if you have to remarry you have to divorce her before you marry another woman, which i think is not even encouraged to divorce. read 1cor. 7:8-16. read and study these verses please. this is not a matter of catholic or non catholic

Even if u divorce her u can't still remarry since she is stil alive.unless u are ready to live ur life in adultery, judging by biblical commandment, u can only Marry ones,except she dies.if u remarry while she is still alive, be ready to receive d judgement of adultery.

So some churches do encourage Christians as they call themselves to change to another church and remarry even when the bible they alleged as their sole authority to faith and moral discouraged that.na wa o.....that's why truth can only be found in the catholic church.

Bro, the bible did not encourage a divorcee to re marry except if the partner is death.

OP, you are in a very tight situation but I feel if you can't stand the chance of being alone as your ex wife doesn't want to reconcile which is obvious that you don't have an atom of love for her again, then I will suggest you seek the counsel of your priest or better still act on your human nature by compromising to do a court wedding and to denounce your membership as a catholic.

Still doesn't make me a pervert. Was it contrary to established morals or doctrines? Perhaps so but has nothing to do with perversion.
