Marriage after annulment/COC
« on: August 11, 2013, 12:31:26 AM »
I would have asked abouna this but since I'm in the middle of a cross-country move plus all the hassles and lack of time that come with, here is hoping you guys can offer some insight.

Someone please fill me in on how remarriage works in the COC.

I was married before in an Islamic ceremony plus in a civil ceremony (civil part was annulled thanks to state law), I have not been baptized but I expect and hope this will happen in the future. I seem to get mixed answers about this; When getting married again, will it be considered like a first marriage with the crowning, or would it be without? I've heard since I got an annulment getting married as long as I'm baptized before is no issue...unless I'm misinformed about that. Anyone out there have any idea?

I take it that you are neither married (now) nor baptized.  So any marriage after your baptism would be your first.  Crowning and all.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

That would be correct. Thank-you ;D
