My fiancé and I recently got engaged. Both of our families are excited and his parents almost immediately asked if we would be having a catholic wedding. It surprised me that they would even ask seeing as I am not religious and my fiancé, although raised Catholic, is not religious either. I let them know that from what I had read I was under the assumption that we would be ineligible to do so for a number of reasons. I'm pretty sure that I saw somewhere that one member of the couple must be a member of the catholic church in good standing. My fiancé doesn't attend church and was never confirmed. Something else that I remember reading is that the non catholic half of the couple must still have been baptized (which I have not). Furthermore FI and I have cohabitated (he's currently in another country for work) and plan to continue to cohabitate after he returns.
Additionally, I feel like it would be disrespectful to the Catholic faith for me (and us) to go through with a marriage in the church when it's not what we believe. When I told them all of this they told me that non of these things were really issues and that we would have no problems marrying in the church. What do you think? I need the opinions of others. My FI just wants to make everyone happy.
