And when that heavy, nasty weight of your ex leaves and you realize that you will survive and that life does go on, all of a sudden the sun starts to shine a little brighter. These days, there are a lot of people who are suffering silently through their troubles and feel completely alone, even when they are in the midst of a crowd of people because they are afraid to bring their problems out into the light.
The rebuilding phase after a divorce is not the time to stay home alone and forgo any type of social interaction—definitely not.
Here are some suggestions I would like to offer you on how to use your CatholicMatch membership well. The Forums are a fantastic place to begin conversations with other single people (divorced, widowed and never-married), ask questions and hear other peoples’ perspectives on the issues that are important to you.
Although rebuilding your life can be a difficult and challenging part of healing from divorce, it’s important to have a positive outlook and your profile should reflect this.
In time, you will be ready to find a long term romantic relationship again and until then, CatholicMatch can be a unique community for divorced Catholics.
Author and speaker Lisa Duffy has 20 years of both personal and professional experience in helping others deal with their divorces. Wow…catholicmatch which expresses how a divorce person who does not have an annulment Cannot Date, because it would be considered adultery and Against the Catholic Church’s teachings! My post is related with the dignity of the human person and God’s loving mercy towards humanity in every circumstance of life. I know that, however, there is a practical side to that, so does the Social Doctrine of the Church have ANYTHING to say about that? After many years of feeling like I am a fish out of the couples water, and far too old to fir in, I relied on church contacts, activities, and people.
As an addendum, Pope Francis himself wants to make annulments easier, which I think is great.
Thank you Carol, that is tue , not everyone is married in the Catholic Church and don’t need an annulment, I made the mistake of marrying before a justice of the peace mine mine was a civil marriage and civil divorce. I didn’t know that going on a date with someone who was not annuled yet was considered adultery?
It is not, this is why you get annulments through a priest even though you are divorced legally and you can list the intended person you would want to marry on a form you fill out. No worries, Pope Francis is working to clear the path for remarried divorcees to receive the sacraments so it’s all good… Welcome to newChurch!


I’m so very grateful that Catholicmatch is a place that I could find someone who is serious about their faith. After it was all over, I felt I needed to have some closer (what the heck does that mean?!) so I went to my pastor and asked him to help me go through the annulment process. In July 2013, I received a letter from the Archdiocese that the case was being sent to the final Tribunal stage and that I would be contacted within a few months. I called Father at the Archdiocese and he told me that they would pray for us both and that now I was a widow in the eyes of the Church.
Also was not married in a catholic church when we married she was not catholic and so we did not marry in a catholic church so wondering if that makes a difference or not? The couple have been together nearly 15 years and have a son, Presley, 13, and a daughter, Kaia, 11. The only thing he likes more than his own voice is the sound of readers telling him when he's right and wrong.
You start to notice the different shades of green of the leaves in that tree that has been outside your house for years and years.
There is no speculating this time, no guessing about what he might look like in middle age, or whether he will fulfill all those dazzling plans he lays out, or whether he has the capacity for love and friendship and joy. Make sure your profile photo is one that accentuates your positivity by posting one with a nice smile.
Even if you are unable to have a romantic relationship because you do not have a decree of nullity, you still have access to a community of like-minded single men and women with whom you can connect and find strong, healthy social relationships.
Born and raised in Southern California, Lisa suffered through the pain of being a divorced Catholic in the early 1990s.
Men and women, in the concrete circumstances of history, represent the heart and soul of Catholic social thought[202]. If you did not, the nullifying process is different, but still consider canon reasons to discuss with your priest; I encourage you to talk to your parish priest about this right away. As in the future one of my requirements is whoever I marry that we both are catholic and both are deep into catholic faith.
No matter how contentious or acrimonious or downright explosively miserable the end of your marriage was, being divorced is better.
Your children seem unbelievably wonderful, and your own reflection in the mirror starts to not look so horrible. Divorced men and women are most in need of a place to reach out to others and have others reach out to them.
Then, make sure you have clearly indicated your status as a divorced person who is looking for friendships, but be sure to include comments that convey something forward-thinking such as you are going through the annulment process (if you are), or you find you are learning to enjoy being on your own again and would like to find friends that are of the same mindset.
Currently, there are two exciting events coming up, a pilgrimage to Fatima, Lourdes, Madrid, and Barcelona in July, and the National Catholic Singles Conference in October, and both would be excellent ways to take your mind off your troubles and meet new people.
After seven years of intense struggle, spiritual growth, personal triumphs, and finally remarriage in the church and the birth of three miracle children, her one desire was to help others who were suffering find hope and healing. The whole of the Church’s social doctrine, in fact, develops from the principle that affirms the inviolable dignity of the human person[203].


I so much want to meet a Catholic man and have a Catholic ceremony, as I did not have in my previous marriage. I do appreciate all the different opinions that are offered and moderators help conversations stay on track and come to reasonable conclusions based upon the expertise they offer. This is extremely helpful to other CatholicMatch members, especially those who have never been through a divorce. I highly encourage you to check out these events and more importantly, don’t hesitate to organize and post your own events. Lisa has worked for the church in a variety of roles, most recently bringing her divorce support program, Journey of Hope, to parishes in the US and Canada. In her manifold expressions of this knowledge, the Church has striven above all to defend human dignity in the face of every attempt to redimension or distort its image; moreover she has often denounced the many violations of human dignity. During my time away from the Church, I was married to a non-Christian woman in a non-Catholic ceremony in a secular location and I was thinking I had to get an annulment for that eventually.
They are men who have bodies and hands and deep voices that offer compliments and eyes -- eyes.
But jumping back into a heavy romantic relationship before you’re ready will lead you to making more mistakes. I believe you will come in contact with some great people if you state these things in a positive and upfront manner. There are so many people who are great at organizing events and if you are one of those people, don’t let your divorce stand in the way of using that gift. Lisa is a frequent guest on Catholic radio shows such as Relevant Radio's "On Call With Wendy Wiese", "Catholic Answers Live," and has appeared several times on EWTN's "Women of Grace" with Johnnette Benkovic. Your pastor should be your first point of contact for the real, correct, complete information about *your* previous marriage and what *you* need (or don’t need) to do.
I am keeping my hopes up, and continuing to grow in my faith and know I have a lot of fantastic qualities to bring into a relationship!
If you haven’t been through the annulment process and received a decree of nullity just yet, you might be wondering just how CatholicMatch can work for you. As a member of a dating site where the primary objective is to find love, what can you do?
Organizing an event could be a great way to pull yourself out of the doldrums and do something that makes you feel great. If that is correct, then the only further clarification is if I can do this without an imminent marriage waiting in the wings.
About all those feelings and the touching and the joy and the thrill and that passion and the love. I hope that someday i can find that one person god has planned me to be with and hope to someday marry again and start a family etc.
