I was wondering, if I got the annulment would we be able to get… My fiancé was previously married in Greece in an Orthodox ceremony.
They have since divorced and the former wife has remarried (to a non-Orthodox). You said: ” Orthodox Church recognizes the sanctity of marriage and sees it as a life-long commitment. If we both were to convert to the Orthodox faith, could we be married in the Orthodox Church even though she has not received an… I am not interested in converting, but I respect and honor his religion because I honor him.
f anyone had asked me what I thought about Eastern Orthodoxy before I converted, I would have said it was basically a popeless Catholic Church, except that its priests can marry. While there are certainly important similarities between the theologies of world’s largest and second-largest Christian Churches—for example, our understanding of the nature of Communion—there are also crucial differences that still impede reunification more than a thousand years after the tragedy of the Great Schism.
Moreover, it is a misnomer to say that Orthodox priests can marry. If he wishes to have a family life, he must get hitched before he is ordained to the deaconate, the penultimate step before becoming a priest.
I bring this up because of the ongoing debate within Catholic circles—pushed energetically by the Church’s internal and external critics—about whether to revoke the rule requiring priest celibacy.
The regulation was formally established at the Council of Trent in 1563 after centuries of controversy over the issue of priests and marriage.
for several years from his six-year-old daughter’s mother - who has since passed away - Mr Adams said he met women who either didn’t want to help him with family responsibilities or were interested in his money.
Now based in Syracuse, Utah, she hopes to go to school to improve her English and wants to connect with the local Russian Orthodox Church to get a sense of community. State Department warns citizens that international dating is fertile ground for scam artists and people should never send money or disclose personal information to someone without verifying his or her identity.
Anglicanism and Protestantism in general do not require celibacy of its clergy and allow—or even encourage—clerical marriage.Within the Roman Catholic Church, clerical celibacy is mandated for all clergy in the Latin Church except in the permanent diaconate.Exceptions are sometimes admitted for ordination to transitional diaconate and priesthood on a case-by-case basis for married clergymen of other churches or communities who become Catholics, but ordination of married men to the episcopacy is excluded (see Personal ordinariate).Eastern Orthodox Christianity claims to have fully preserved, without any deviation, the traditions and doctrines of the early Christian church established by the apostles.This is why they believe themselves to be the only true and "right believing" Christian faith.My question is, I am divorced, and I want to get married to a guy that is an Orthodox Christian.I am Catholic, and I am trying to get an annulment.Meanwhile her fiance is learning Russian with a view of retiring in Ukraine one day. The word orthodox means "right believing" and was adopted to signify the true religion that faithfully followed the beliefs and practices defined by the first seven ecumenical councils (dating back to the first ten centuries).To understand better what that would be, let’s look at the Orthodox approach to this important question.n Orthodox man who feels called to the priesthood has two options.The first, as mentioned above, is to receive the necessary education and, if he is single, delay being ordained until after he is married.In the Eastern Orthodox Church and Oriental Orthodoxy, celibacy is the norm for bishops; married men may be ordained to the priesthood, but even married priests whose wives pre-decease them are not allowed to enter marriage after ordination.Similarly, celibacy is not a requirement for ordination as a deacon and in some Oriental Orthodox churches deacons may marry after ordination.I was married in the Roman Catholic faith and so far no annulment is contemplated.
