I’m a convert to the church. My fiancé is in the process of converting. Coptic Church wedding is in July 2020.
However, we must get married in a court (outside of the church) immediately - like in the next month.
My health is rapidly deteriorating. She has medical insurance. I do not. If we get married immediately, I will be able to get her medical insurance and receive life savings treatment.
I am not sure I will be able to hold on until our July wedding ... let alone after the great fast.
If we get married in court - can we rejoin the church? If we get married in court, we do intend on getting married in the Church in July as well.
We desperately love each other. However, my medical condition has put things in severe jeopardy.
