Marrying a person you love is making a promise that you and your partner will be with each other forever.

Hi, me and my FiancÚ are scheduled to get married on 23 April 2015. We're supposed to have a garden/Christian wedding in Lakeshore Pampangga. You are right Sir, the dominating religion here in the Philippines is Catholicism. Myself is included. Why we're not going to have a Church wedding - even if I dream of walking down the aisle inside a Catholic church? Because my fiancÚ's religion is Church of England, we no longer want to give ourselves any fuss in regards to all the needed requirements on having a Catholic wedding, and we both know that our religion will never be a hindrance to our marriage. So we decided to have an outdoor wedding.

Everything was set until I called the Pastor that will officiate the ceremony, and learned from him that he couldn't marry Us. Why? Because, according to him, it's one of the Laws here in PH, that the one who will officiate at the ceremony should have the same religion as the marrying couple. Meaning, if you're going to have a Catholic wedding inside the church, it's fine if one of you is Catholic and one is not. BUT if you're going to have a Christian wedding and both of you are not Christian you can't have a Christian wedding.

We thought at first that we weren't going to have a problem, since Christians have many sub-types and Church of England is one of them. But according to the pastor, Church of England is Anglican. It's not Christian (born Again) according to him. It can be grounds for an Annulment if we pursue to have a Christian wedding. He gave us some solutions that we could take and one of them is to have a civil wedding first. So my fiancÚ decided to come back again here in January for our civil wedding. For us, civil weddings are only for legality, but the one in April that we planned will be our blessing from God in front of our family and friends.

We've learned as well that a Catholic priest is no longer allowed to officiate at a wedding outside a Catholic Church.
