Irregular marriages recognized?
#5
Canon 1086, Section 1 states: "A marriage between two persons, one of whom has been baptized in the Catholic Church or received into it, and the other of whom is not baptized, is invalid."  But, Section 2 of that Canon allows for dispensations therefrom: "A person is not to be dispensed (i.e., dispensations are allowed) from this impediment unless the conditions mentioned in Cannons 1125 and 1126 have been fulfilled."   Those Canons deal with mixed marriages (i.e. marriages between the baptized and un-baptized).

It would therefore appear that marriages conducted between two baptized persons, regardless if they were Catholic or not at the time of marriage, are indissoluble.  Further, regarding mixed marriages, it would appear to depend if the marriage was entered into with the proper dispensation.  If it were, then it would appear to be indissoluble.  If it were not, it would appear to be an invalid marriage (and grounds for a petition of annulment?). Finally, marriage between two un-baptized persons would not at all be recognized as being valid.
