That's a question that is not easily generalized. Any lay person may take a vow of chastity. Married persons may take the vow of chastity, as permanent deacons do, where if the spouse dies, they may not remarry.

The Norbertine tertiaries may be married or single. Their web page is listed below.

When was a catholic priest able to marry?

Celibacy in the priesthood slowly evolved over the centuries. The first Apostles were mostly married men and in the early centuries married priests were the norm. About the fourth century (306 -335) celibacy was beginning to be introduced (however priests were not forbidden to marry), and most were married. In the eleventh century (1045) priests needed to be unmarried and remain celibate in order to be ordained. In the twelfth century (1013 and 1039) priestly marriages were decreed void, but at least 50% of priests were still married and remained married-their exact nature for celibacy was not known. During the 15th through 17th centuries the strictures to be celibate gain strength and slowly the priesthood transitions to an unmarried, celibate occupation. Even into the 20th century there are married catholic priests, those who convert from Anglican or Episcopal church, however, they are expected to remain celebate.
