Catholics/Marriage

Question
I'm a Catholic woman who is in relationship with a Jehovah's Witness man. If we plan to get married, can we have a successful marriage and can we marry at the Catholic Church ? Thank you for your help.

Answer
Peace

dear Cicilia
     I doubt you would have successful sacramental marriage because JW's are not Christian, therefore you couldn't have one. You can have a natural marriage only. If he became a Christian, you could have a sacramental marriage.

Expertise

I am willing to attempt to answer any question. If I donít know the answer, I will look-up or pass the question on to friends for feed back. Beside Catholicism (especially the social/moral and the Eastern rites), I am well read on Mormonism and so-called Modern Christian Fundamentalism. Also I study Franciscan History as means of growing in my lay Franciscan calling to holiness in Christ.
