Catholic dating divorced person
So are Catholics unable to date divorced non-Catholics?
I know that the non-Catholic person would be required to receive an annulment before marriage, but since they are presumed to be married, would it be sinful to date without an annulment?
I posted this in r/Catholicism as well, but thought it might be more appropriate here.
I know non-Catholic marriages are presumed to be valid.
I didn’t want to waste my time dating him to find out I couldn’t even marry the guy when the time came.I'm not as concerned about why she got a divorce. As far as I can tell:(1) If we presume that their marriage is valid (and I think we are supposed to), then you are not permitted to do anything with them that you would not be permitted to do with any other married person.(2) You cannot date a married person.Conclusion: you cannot date the divorced Protestant.Since they are Catholic they can't really undergo the annulment process because they don't believe in it yah know?So it's not your soul in danger in that regard, but rather theirs.
It involves a lot more time and energy and is not a guarantee, though it seems that many people do receive them.
