In your opinion, is this marriage valid in the eyes of the Catholic Church?

The life he led prior to meeting his wife is one that he deeply regrets.  He considered himself a "secondary virgin" from the time he began dating his (future) wife.

And, yes, he admits that he lied to her because he thought he would lose her.

Based on what some of you have said in your posts on this thread, it would be impossible for the couple to provide proof of the facts, since no one else knew about them.

If it were impossible for them to provide proof of the facts, does that mean that the marriage is indeed valid in the eyes of the Church because there would be no proof to deem it invalid (null)?

As long as they are together the marriage enjoys the presumption of validity. 
Were there any witnesses to this discussion of virginity? That would be very difficult to prove before a tribunal without witnesses. He could say one thing and she could say another and there would be no proof for the tribunal to consider.
