Hi, guys —

I am trying to discern if there is any future with a non-practicing Hindu.

  • Is a divorced Hindu free to marry in the eyes of the Catholic Church?
  • If not, is there any possible annulment process that could examine the validity of the Hindu marriage?


  { Is a divorced Hindu free to marry in the Catholic Church and, if not, is an annulment possible? }

Eric replied:


The Catholic Church recognizes most non-Catholic first marriages so your intended loved one would need to get an annulment in the Catholic Church.

Yes, the Church does, as a matter of course, grant them to non-Catholics, specifically for this reason.

Talk to your pastor.
