Question
I need help. I'm Baptist and the guy I've been seeing is Coptic orthodox. I was once married and now divorced. we are not sure about the rules for us getting married. He is not sure if his priest will allow it. my marriage was a toxic marriage. I did technically get married in a church but did not have a Christian marriage. my ex husband refused the church and our faith completely. I just want to know what are if any ways me and my boyfriend could do about our situation and marriage in the Coptic church?

Answer
