Dating question?

Dec 9th 2012 new

I met somebody on aonther site and had a date with her. I have my annulment. She is Catholic and divorced, but did not get married in the Catholic church. I don't think the Catholic church recognizes her marriage, but is she still married in the eyes of the Catholic church?

Would it be a sin to date her?

Can somebody clarify all the ins and out of dating and contacting members of the oppisite sex? I know you are not suppose to date divorced Catholics since that is commiting adultery.

thx...

There are many persons here who have more knowledge than I do, but here goes. She may need a lack of form done prior to getting married. Talk to your priest about it. It is not necessarily a sin. If she is still in love with him or considered it a spiritual marriage and refuses to get the annulment, you have your answer. I have a friend who was dealing with this very same issue and this is what she was told. In her case, The man saw his marriage to a Catholic but not in the church as a spiritual marriage and he refuses to get an annulment, so this is the answer for my annuled friend who was seeing him.
