OK, so let me see if I understand this.
If my atheist husband and I married in a civil ceremony, and I later was baptized, and then he left and divorced me in part due to conflicts my Christian faith represented, whereupon I became a Catholic, does that mean the Church would permit a subsequent Catholic marriage? Or not? I had thought that now that I’m becoming a Catholic I had to throw in the towel on love and marriage, but it sounds from this as though in some circumstances the Church would recognize the end of my marriage. Am I interpreting things correctly or grasping at straws?
