Such as being married in City Hall. I recently posted an experience I had with a priest. The first time I got married I was 21 and had little money. My husband and I paid $25.00 and were married in City Hall. For our 5 year wedding anniversary we saved up moneyto have the big wedding in church. When we went to meet with the priest, we were told that we had been living in sin for 5 years, that our marriage was not recognized by God or the church. What do you think?
