Advice - Family Member's Marriage
(09-29-2019, 03:24 PM)MagisterMusicae Wrote: The Canons used to allow those who had formally left the Church to validly marry outside the Church. Since 2009 that has not be the cases. Once someone has been Baptized in the Catholic Church or received into the Catholic Church he is always a Catholic, and is bound to marry only according to the laws of the Church.

Why was this changed? Seems to me that someone's who's no longer a practising Catholic isn't going to care about the Church's rules anyway, and saying that his marriage will be invalid will just cause him to think it's yet another stupid rule and drive him further away, plus make him guilty of fornication. I suppose if such a person does come back, it's an easy annulment if things didn't work out in the meantime.
