I am a baptized Christian (church of England). I was married in a civil ceremony (Registry office in the UK) 15 years ago but divorced 10 years ago. My ex wife was never baptized.
My fiancee is Catholic and never married.
We are planning on marrying next year in a Catholic ceremony in the USA.
Do I need to get the former marriage annulled by the Catholic church, or was it never valid in the first place?
