My wife and I, who have been legally married 4 years, and were wed at that time in the RC church, are having an Orthodox ceremony a week from Sunday, now that I have been formally received into the church.  Its a funny feeling, and I don't know exactly how to react to it. Our wedding was quite a big ordeal, and as we already have children, and a firm life together, it's hard to think of us being anything but married, but this is juts another step, and a firming of our spiritual bond, which has really only been born in a significant way since we became of one faith. Has anyone else been through this, a church remarriage, whilst still married?
Please pray for us; it will, God willing, be a joyous day!

We just had our marriage blessed as a low key event before Vespers. You could always think of it as a renewal of your vows, just this time within Christ's Church.

Felicitaciones! (I haven't done that, but my husband and I may be heading for the altar as well later this year. I feel like it will be more meaningful, as our non-denominational wedding ceremony was sadly lacking of the tradition I wanted.)

 Cheesy Cheesy Do you have any children? I think you do, if I remember correctly. I think they'll get a big kick out of seeing mom and dad get married in the Orthodox church!

In some sense, you were already married. Marriage is one of those things that the Orthodox Church did not invent, but rather transformed. The difference is that this is your marriage's reception of the sanctification of the Church.

This is the distinction I was wondering about. Thanks for the clarification, and thank all for the prayers!
