Recently my best friend asked me to be the Godmother to her new born son. I was over the moon. Then my husband mentioned that it is odd for a Catholic to ask a Methodist, or anyone who isn't Catholic, to be their child's Godparent. I didn't think anything of it until my MIL said the same thing. I brought it up to my friend and she called the church and found at that it is in fact true, and that I can't be the baby's Godmother. Of course I has unhappy to hear this; but I am still happy to be an honorary "Auntie".
Anyway, I got to thinking, if they are that strict does that mean that the Catholic church wouldn't even recognize that my husband and I are married? We were married in the Methodist church that I had been going to since I was 13yrs old. He thought about it too and said probably not. My questions are, 1) does anyone know if this is true, and 2) what are your feelings on the subject?
