    Hello can we get married as per the Christian marriage act as both of us are catholic however am divorced but my annulment is pending in the Church. Is there a way through? Your guidance will be very helpful.

      Anna, it would be best if you could meet up with the priests from your church and take their opinion, as per law, unless the annulment is done, remarriage cannot happen.
