Can divorced people remarry in a church?
The Church of England teaches that marriage is for life. We also recognise that some marriages sadly do fail and if this should happen, we seek to be available for all involved. The Church accepts that, in exceptional circumstances, a divorced person may marry again in church during the lifetime of a former spouse.
Can we discuss this with our parish priest?
If you are thinking of about asking to be married in a church, you and your intended spouse should discuss this with your parish priest. This will need to be well before choosing a date for your wedding. Your priest may also feel the need to consult with the bishop or his adviser, before making a decision, although the decision remains with the parish priest. This process could easily take some time, and you should discuss how long it might take with your parish priest at your initial meeting.
