I was previously married in a catholic church and was raised catholic. My fiance was raised catholic but never confirmed and was previously married by a JP. Since then we've felt that the catholic church just wasn't giving us what we wanted and we now have been going to a congregational church for the past 2 years. My parents are catholic and continue going to mass. I've gone with them before but found it very boring and unfulfilling. We are now going to be married in our church, the first congregational church. I've told my parents before we go to this church but I don't think they fully understood. I told my mother that we confirmed that we'll be getting married on October 4 and she just comes back with "did you get your marriage annulled? if not, no church wedding" That crushed me. I thought an annullment was just a catholic thing? I also think they don't realize that we'll be getting married in a non denominational church. I'm so afraid of breaking their heart. I'm not sure how to break it to them that we wouldn't be getting married in a catholic church. I really thought they knew. help!
