I’m divorced. Can I still get married in church?

There may be a way forward for you to be married again in church. The Church of England agreed in 2002 that divorced people could remarry in church under certain circumstances. We believe that marriage is for life, but also recognise that sadly, some marriages do fail.

Speak to your Vicar about your situation. He or she will want to talk to you frankly about your past and your hopes for the future and will let you know whether they can remarry you. Even if it is not possible to do your wedding, they may offer you a service of prayer and dedication after a civil ceremony.

A helpful resource, Marriage in church after divorce, is available on the Church of England web site.
