If you are Roman Catholic can you receive a nondenominational ordination as a minister and still get married?
If you are ordained in another religion you cease to be a Catholic. You are free to marry but not in a Catholic church.
Catholic and Orthodox priests cannot get married. However, if an Orthodox man is married before he is ordained, he can remain married after ordination.
No, Catholic priests, of whatever Rite, must take a vow of celibacy before ordination to the diaconate. Eastern Rite priests, however, like the Melkites, may be married when they take the vow of celibacy. So, that they would be married when they are ordained. However, if they are not married, or if their wife dies, then they may not marry after their ordination.
If a Catholic is married by a Justice of the Peace or a Protestant Minister is heshe considered married by the Catholic Church?
No. Ordination is not considered a marriage. In the Roman Catholic, Eastern Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Old Catholic and Anglican churches, ordination is identified with the sacrament of Holy Orders and is the means by which one is included in one of the three major orders: bishop, priest, or deacon.
Yes, Catholic priests have always been ordained from married men. Only in the Latin Rite in the West are only single men put up for ordination. However, all men, upon ordination make a promise of celibacy which means that if their wife dies, they may not remarry. There are some exceptions in the Latin Rite, as for instance, with converting Anglican priests who are already married, they take the same promise as Eastern Rite priests… Read More
Why won't the Catholic Church allow deacons to marry if not already married when becoming a deacon or if married if he becomes a widower cannot remarry?
A deacon may not marry after ordination as he has taken a vow of celibacy when he gets ordained, which means that he may not marry after ordination. If he is married when he is ordained, then he remains married, but may not remarry should his wife die.
Does a Catholic need an annulment if he was married by a Baptist minister to a Baptist woman and they later divorced?
If you were not married in the Catholic Church, this marriage was not recognized and therefore not necessary for an annulment.
They got married in Boston Massachusetts in a catholic church and his father was a minister.
No. However they can be married prior to becoming ordained a Deacon and stay married. They can have children before or after the ordination as a married Deacon. However, it is my understanding that, once ordained, the deacon must remain celebate.
A Catholic whose former spouse is still alive and whose marriage was not ended through annulment would not be able to remarry in a Catholic church.
Orthodox priests can be married before they are ordained whereas Catholic priests cannot ever be married (except when a priest/minister of another denomination converts and wishes to be in the Catholic clergy).
Generally speaking, in modern Christianity, only Protestant and some independent Catholic churches allow for ordained clergy to marry after ordination.
Probably. If the Catholic man did not gain permission from his bishop to be married by a minister who is not a Catholic priest or deacon, the Church will not recognize that prior marriage as being valid. Thus, in the eyes of the church he was never married to begin with. If he got a civil divorce from his first "wife" then he would be free under secular law to remarry. Since he was never… Read More
Answer Former Episcopal priests that are married can be ordained into the Catholic church. The celibacy requirement is waived for those rare instances. For a real life story on this, see the weblink below: Catholic Answer Priests in all but the Latin right may be married IF they were married before they were ordained.

You are Catholic and your fiance is not can you get married by a minister or will you lose your status as a Catholic?
it depends on the two of you. Say for example, a catholic man wants to marry a Muslim woman, the catholic man can be converted to a Muslim or the Muslim woman to catholic. You can't be married if you are different to her/him. ANSWER: I'd consult your parish priest and/or diocese about this. Don't believe that you, as a Catholic, can be married by a non-catholic minister in a non-catholic church. You'd need, at… Read More
A man can be married before being ordained a deacon, but not after. If already married and his wife should die, he cannot remarry. This applies to permanent deacons only, not to those who are ordained as deacons ( transitional deacos)who are to be ordained priests, since priests cannot be married prior to or after ordination.
If the Catholic member of the party was married by a Justice of the Peace with no church minister involvement, the marriage is not recognized by the church. The marriage can be validated in the church if you so desire; the non-catholic party will need to witness your oath to raise any children of the union as Catholic, and vow to a permanent commitment. If the non-catholic was previously married, there may be other complications.
It depends upon the level of his ordination. If he is a laychaplain - i.e. if he is not ordained - then yes, he can marry. If he has been ordained a deacon in the Catholic Church, then again, he can marry. But if the chaplain is an ordained priest (or bishop), then in the Roman Catholic Church they are not allowed to marry and take a vow of celibacy (not having sex) at their… Read More
At least one of the party needs to be a Catholic to be married in the Catholic Church.
Yes, as long as she was not married and divorced before and if she agrees to the man's oath to bring up children as catholic and for a permanent marriage committment for life. That would be a valid catholic nmaraige in the presence of the church's minister.
Yes, you can. If you were baptized as CATHOLIC and married by a Presbyterian minister your marriage is invalid in the eyes of the church ( although your civil marriage is certainly valid). You can have your marriage validated by the Catholic church as long as this is your first and only marriage and your spouse's first and only marriage. Your spouse and you would need to agree to raise any children Catholic, make a… Read More
There are two separate Ukrainian Churches, the Ukrainian Uniate Church, and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. All Uniate Churches are still in union with Rome, it is the Orthodox who left the Church in the twelve century. Uniate priests may be married before they are ordained, but all Catholic priests, regardless of their Rite, take a vow of celibacy, and may not marry after Ordination. Short answer? There may be married Ukrainian Catholic priests, but no… Read More

My Catholic son married a non Catholic in a non-denominational church he is divorced and is now planning to remarry a Catholic in the Catholic church is this allowed?
Because he never married in a catholic church before, so for the catholic he is not married. Answer to your question is : Yes
You mean he got married and divorced by a minister who is not a priest or deacon, without the Catholic church's blessing? If this is what you are asking, the answer turns on: 1) Was the man Catholic? If he was, then the Church will not recognize his first marriage unless he got permission from his bishop to get married by the state. So, because he was never married, he won't have any difficulties marrying… Read More
Roman Catholic nuns are "married" to Jesus. They may not be married to a living person.
If you mean in the Catholic Church: No, not if the Catholic was married in a valid Catholic ceremony - the previous marriage needs to be annulled. If the Catholic was married by a justice of peace, then the Catholic can be married without annulment, but then it depends on the protestant party - if married in protestant church that marriage will need to be annulled, unless the precious spouse was a Catholic and married… Read More

No, John Carroll was a catholic Bishop and not married.
yes, permanent deacons are ordained as the first order in the sacrament of Holy Orders. They can be married if married before ordination. Unlike other Christian religions, deacons are members of the clergy. Priests,who receive the 2nd Holy Order, were also ordained first as transitional deacons for a brief period.
In Catholic churches.
No pope outlawed the marriage of priests, it was always considered normative, based on St. Paul's personal life, although he allowed the ordination of married men. It was not codified into law until the Council of Elvira (295-302 A.D.) By the end of the fourth century there were still a few married clergy, although Pope Siricius in 386 issued an edit saying that any married man who was ordained should no longer have relations with… Read More
I'm afraid to say that you do not become a catholic by getting married in a Church. To become a catholic you need to be baptized in a Catholic church.
My son married a non Catholic in the Catholic church He is divorced and is now planning to get married to a Catholic Why won't the Catholic church marry them?

No, Roman Catholics are required to be married in a Catholic Church, by a Catholic priest.
Do Catholics have to make their confirmation before they can get married even not in a Catholic church?

Yes. A typical parish priest is married with a family. Priests (and deacons) may not marry after ordination, however.
Priests have not been allowed to marry for the entire history of the Church. In certain eras of the Church's history there has been some abuse of this and that is why the regulations named above were later put into effect. But there is ample evidence from the very first centuries that priests were never allowed to marry in the Latin Rite. In the Latin Rite, to be ordained to the diaconate and priesthood, men… Read More
Yes. A Catholic is normally expected to be married in the context of the Catholic liturgy, which ordinarily takes place in their own parish church. Exceptions can be made to be married outside one's own parish, outside a church building, or in another Christian liturgy with a non-Catholic minister as witness. These are fairly routine, but require advance preparation. Catholics can even get dispensation to marry a non-Christian, but then the marriage is not considered… Read More
