Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE VALIDITY OF A
PROTESTANT MARRIAGE.


Q. 1. I was told that the Catholic Church recognizes Protestant marriages as being valid. As such, should a Protestant divorce and want to marry in the Catholic Church at a later date, there would be required a declaration of nullity. Is this true?

A. 1. A marriage between two baptized non-Catholic, even before a Justice of the Peace, is considered valid. As such, should there ever be a separation with one of the parties wishing to marry to a Catholic in the Catholic Church, there would have to be an application for a marriage annulment.

As the Catholic Church recognizes as valid the marriage between two baptised non-Catholics, it also recognizes as valid the marriage between two non-baptised persons who do not profess a christian faith.
