I find that support group helps everyone to feel less alone in their problem. But at the end of the day, the way to gather strength for the new life and to overcome the fear of what's ahead is to seek within.I got to face the dragon alone as everyone's dragon is different.

Dear Catholic Exchange, I am a divorced Protestant who would one day like to marry his Catholic girlfriend in the Catholic Church. Will the Catholic Church overlook my previous marriage since it wasn't in the RC Church? Would I need to convert or do I simply make the “child upbringing pledge? The Church takes very seriously the words of Jesus Christ, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery” (Mk -12; cf. The Church does not recognize remarriage after a divorce because the Lord himself does not. There can be no private reservations, no preserving of the option of breaking off the relationship if things get too difficult.
