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

KurutzeMaitea “It is highly debatable if the virginity of the bride/groom is a condition to be validly included in a marriage contract, rendering it null if not met. A person which has lost his/her virginity is perfectly capable of assuming all the ends and obligations of marriage. What if someone expresses his/her desire to marry "only if he/she has never sinned against glutony"? This as opposed to the diesel versus non diesel car, which refers to the actual and present nature of the matter acquired with the contract. God bless you again.”

You’re chasing a red herring.

The man deceived his fiancée by malice to make her consent to marry him.  That invalidates the contract.

If he had merely withheld his status regarding virginity then arguably the union would be valid.
